    Long fiber spahgnum is a fine medium for many Drosera species, and many indeed prefer it. Some prefer peat/sand. This is another area where research can provide good information. Generally bog dwellers prefer sphagnum whereas flood plain species do will in the peat/sand mix.

    There are a lot less algae issues with sphagnum as the natural acidity deters its growth. Why not try some of your seedlings in both mediums and see what the results are?

    Thanks plan on it,
    I am going to keep some sort of journal on this. Best mediums temps water levels,which almost nobody mentions, I have had to search for pics to find out best water levels.
    wether or not they prefer it soaked, wet, or farely dry. On harder species people do get alot more detailed thats easy to find info on, like gladuligera theres no end to the detail and thoeries. easyer species Nobody really takes the time over details detail like the perferd moister or drainage, which is rather frustrating.

    Hi Joel,

    Well, you have a good picture of South African climate now:-)

    http://www2.labs.agilent.com/botany/...osera/0075.htm

    The above has habitat listings for collected type specimens of most of the South Africans if you want specifics. For the tropical evergreen species, standard treatment works well: tray watering, warm humid days, cooler nights, good lighting.
