    Moss Better Grow

    Hi Everyone, Just asking a question. Has anyone used Better Grow Moss, sold at Home depot and lows? It says for orchids and such. Think it is okay with our Carnivorous plants?

    Thanks
    Jim

    Yup...I've used it, and it works just as good as any other brand of LFS...it's pretty good quality as a matter of fact.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This?

    http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=202184438&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&ci_sku=202184438&ci_kw={keyword}&cm_mmc=shopping-_-googleads-_-28-_-202184438&ci_gpa=pla&locStoreNum=2807


    It's simply dried long fiber sphagnum moss, perfect for CPs!

    I shred it and use it in place of peat in most potting mixes. After a couple months of being wet and under bright light and relatively mild temps (not too hot) the dead moss will come back to life.

    If you need larger quantities check out garden center / florist / hydroponics shops who usually have it in 1 and 2 kilo bales.

    Doesn't work as good as say.. Mass Brand Live LFS, but it's sufficient. Why not go with some quality live LFS?

    Yup! I actually bought like 6-7 bags of it last time I saw it becuase it has become hard to find in canada. I personally like this stuff as it seems to last longer and isn't Nuked and bleached like some of the stuff I got on ebay.
