    Excellent work! Gotta love them cobras. I really like that clump that is just sitting in water. I hope mine can turn out looking as plentiful once spring comes around. Keep us updated!

    The cedar chips are throughout the media. In the past I have used fir bark in more or less equal parts with the standard 1:1 perlite and peat mix, but this time I didn't want to pay for that much fir bark. #Cheap***** Cedar chips have extended longevity compared to most woods, hopefully at least as long as fir bark. I also figured since cobras naturally grow near redwoods it isn't the worst choice in media.

    That said, I am a bit nervous about it. We will see what happens... :S

    In general terms, I follow Jeff Dallas's recommendation of an aggregate-rich peat-based mix. It yielded much success last year. Theoretically anything that doesn't break down or poison The peat should work.

    All is topped with live sphagnum. I will try to get better pictures today.

    Hi CorneliusSchrute. Know it's a real old thread, but wondering how your Cobras are doing, if you're still growing them!

    This may sound crazy but I'm afraid to have a topdressing of LFS, for fear that the critters would get into it and uproot my plants.I have seen severed VFT traps, turned over pots, and plants next to their pots, dead.
