Sarracenia Seeds - Which soil mix or sphagnum

Recommended Posts

Is there a particular type of sphagnum that would be good for Sarracenia seeds? For example, would fresh sphagnum be preferable to dried? Does it need to be treated in some way?

Doesn't really matter, although the thing with living sphagnum moss is that it grows much faster than you'd expect, so you have to give it a good haircut every couple of weeks if you don't want to lose your seedlings in a forest of moss.

Hi, i agree with carambola, sphagnum grows very much faster than sarras seedling. You could use the typical 50-50 peat moss and perlite without any issues.
