    I can't believe they crammed those three plants together in one tiny pot. I'd separate them all ASAP.

    And if you go with perlite in your mix, make sure it's unfertilized. Same with the peat moss. Don't get the Miracle-Gro stuff, as it's saturated with plant food which will kill your CPs. It can be difficult to find unfertilized perlite, and it can be difficult to find unfertilized peat in sizes smaller than two- or three-cubic-foot bales.

    I chose to go with pool filter sand to combine with peat for my Droseras and VFTs (don't have any Sarracenia). You can get a 50-lb. bag of it for about $9 at a pool supply store. It's pure silica, comes in a very sturdy bag with a pouring spout, and it's enough to last for a looooooooong time.

    Well....The purple pitcher died off...I put the root into a pot of peat in hopes that it would come back.

    The fly trap and pitcher in one pot and they seem to be doing great. both have new growth.

    The sundew and butterwort went into another pot...they dont look like they are doing so good. Its 1/2 peat -1/2 pearlite sitting on the front porch in the shade....leaves are dying off and no signs of new growth

    Bummer about the purple pitcher and the others. Most of those plants aren't healthy to start with, so you are doing ok if you still have the flytrap and pitcher plant. Most of the plants I get from lowe's aren't with me anymore. by the way, did you get my pm about the darlingtonia seed?
