    Remove Moss(?) from Sarracenia x catesbaei?

    I bought these yesterday at a local nursery, and the 4" pots have all this growth around them. The plants seem healthy, but I was wondering if I should remove all this excess plantlife around them...

    I can't see the photo, but the moss won't do any harm. Feel free to remove it for aesthetic reasons though.

    Hmmm. I wonder if I did something wrong with the picture. The link is here.

    Not sure if it's really moss or what.

    That link doesn't work either

    i see both pics clearly. I got the same type of moss (not sphagnum) in mine too. Plant looks healthy so it's up to you.

    Maybe the size has something to do with why some people can't see it.

    Here's a smaller version:

    I see the picture. Would it be possible to get a shot of the pitchers too?

    That moss is rather common. It doesn't do any damage. It's up to you whether or not to remove it.
