    So I took the sphagnum off the top of five of my 4" pots. It was growing over the sides really thick, so I had about six square inches about two inches high in each pot, and 4-5" high in another pot. What you see is just two of the pots after I thinned out the sphagnum. You see about 1/3 of what it originally had.



    I took all of them live stuff and completely dressed the pot of my N. ventrata. The pot is round, maybe 14" in diameter. The plant is 2ft tall and super, super bushy. For some reason, the darn leaves won't die even though they have no pitchers. I've only cut maybe five or six leaves in the six months I've had it. Here's the part with a little exposed sphagnum meadow...



    I thinned out the sphagnum by taking it off of the pot, pulling all of the half-living stuff out from the bottom of the bunch, then loosening the bunch to make it less compact, then I would dress the pot with about 1/3 of what I had. With the half-living stuff, I'm starting a new project. Maybe by the end of the year, I'll have something to post pictures of. I'll do some more thinning and tidying up tomorrow.

    I thinned it out because it kept drying out day after day. The live stuff just wasn't close enough to the medium. The medium was moist, not wet like I thought it was.
