    I have herd that scott's peat is bad to use for carnivorous plants but what about scott's perlite and charcoal? I have been using it for about 4 months and it has had no effects but wanted other peoples results.

    CF, This is definitely predjudice speaking, but I would never use perlite no matter who made it. Use whatever you like, but you can never tell about perlite from any source.

    I just hate it. Gets all over, floats to the top, and is a general pain in the butt. I have been to tons of bogs, and never found ANY growing in this crap. Nature knows best, Man can only imitate.
