    yes, well, I only really need the sphagnum.

    I've found that even though Peter D'Amato recommends a peat/sand mix for sundews, the one I repotted into that mix (using perlite instead of sand) aren't doing very well, whereas the second one I bought from FEF in sphagnum moss is dewing very nicely.

    Of course the second one started off much healthier than the first, and maybe my peat-perlite ratio wasn't so good, but I still think sphagnum is the best medium.

    Well, I've found that NTUC does sell sphagnum moss, but it's $5.15 for a bag.

    Now I'm wondering if I should repot my nepenthes. Very afraid of damaging the roots.

    Carrefour sells Horti LFS too. My neps recover from transplanting shock faster in LFS than in sphagnum peat. The same applies to rooted cuttings too...they start their new growth faster.
