    NG,
    I have heard the same thing. When S.purpurea ssp. purpurea is transplanted from a live sphagnum medium into a peat and sand medium after growing in the sphagnum for a while, the whole plant decreases in size/dies back. CC stands for California Carnivores.

    Stir,
    What is the orange clay stuff? Any clay medium will kill sarrs.

    Sorry Stir no clay. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] They need a media that can "breathe" with no minerals. Clay would definately kill it.

    Hmm.....Well I have tried it and see what happened to me? The same thing. I have however seen PP in the New Jersy Pine Barrens growing in Peat/Sand Soil mixes. Well since I have TONS!!!!! Of seedlings I just germinated i may try that on them but on the other hand if someone wants a PP from me I want it to be large and healty soo I'll stick with the Live Sphagnum Moss. As that is waht I see them in readily in the wild.
