nev3970 Posted July 29, 2017 Report Share Posted July 29, 2017 HI I switched over to melcourt growth pine bark last year, and have found that my plants are growing better and there seem to colour up more on melcourt technical sheet ,it states that the pine bark is sound ,stable structure, which will not measurably degrade with time Due to the pine not degrading like sphagnum moss peat . i should be able to leave my plants for extra years without repotting what are your views regarding repotting http://www.melcourt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Melcourt-Topgrow-Technical-Information-S MIKE KING Shropshire Sarracenias has come up with a peat free mix for his pitcher plants; it’s so good he doesn’t bother with peat at all for his National Collection now. “One part perlite, one part fine or coarse Cornish grit and two parts fine milled bark from Melcourt” https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/gardening-blog/2016/mar/15/why-i-changed-my-mind-about-peat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
