Same here, PlantAkiss...The Chilean sphagnum is good stuff and actually has some "sphag" to it! It's a lot more denser and longer lasting and cleaner than good ol' Canadian stuff. I think i'm going to move all of my Heliamphora into a nice, lavish Chilean apartment, so to speak in Spring...
The Canadian product seems a lot like the partially decomposed sphagnum you see beneath the "good stuff" in a bog (or in a pot). Maybe people in the CP internet forums of 40 years ago praised the excellent Canadian sphagnum and said how much better it was than the American and English. We're running through the supply pretty quickly, unless we're willing to pillage every available wetland, or there's some we can strip mine on a nearby planet. Even that'll only delay the inevitable. Treat it like the gold that it is.
