    Question

    My sarrs enjoy 50/50 silica sand and peat. This last spring, I made a new outdoor CP garden with equal parts silica sand, perlite, and peat. It did really well. I do recommend that you at least add something besides plain peat to aerate and losen the soil.

    My Sarracenias enjoy 50/50 peat and perlite. My plants are happy with it but I'm gonna try adding sand to it.

    Ok, thanks and from the looks 50/50 peat/sand is the best choice. That is what I'm gonna go with.

    I like a Peat: Perlite: Sand: LFS: Milled LFS mix. Peat: perlite also works very well for me.
