    if you dont mind me asking LFS is peat moss right? sorry ive seen it before just never really asked.
    Yeah, peat would probably help soak up the water better. LFS is kinda like pieces of yarn, and I think by the time it gets to the top, there might be too much air and it's all dry around the roots, and not getting the plants the water they need. Also, I don't know how important the hot summers part is, because I intend to keep this as an indoor houseplant.

    I drilled holes in mine, too. I'm going to go to Walmart and hope to find more planters like what I have VFTs and pitcher plants in:
    The green one. You water it from the bottom. I want to get a couple.

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see your question at the bottom. Yeah, peat moss is made from decayed, compacted Sphagnum moss, according to wikipedia.

    Stealin' my water from my pie plate! The squirrel had something wrong with its left eye (maybe didn't have one), so I could always tell when it was that one coming around. Later, I found some of my VFT traps chewed off, and my nep's pitcher chewed off, so I stopped thinking the squirrels were so cute.

    oh i didnt see it before, you have hopefully nice squirrels, we have really horrible squirrels, they ate up my nep leaves and killed a couple last summer. they might look nice now, but be aware of changing attitudes.

    We have feral cats that would rather drink that water than what's in the waterer we put out for them. Lazy.

    I won't mention the skunks, opossums and stupid coon that come by, either. Darned coon, likes to dig!
