    Hi Death66,

    Live LFS is my preferred medium for this species. Grow it in lower light and wet for green dewey leaves, or in stronger light if you want a darker colored rosette.

    I also prefer the long-fiber spagnum..although I dont use live moss..I buy the dried dead stuff (although sometimes some of it greens-up! but not much of it..)

    I have tried all the peat/perlite/sand mixes over the years, and havent liked them much..
    last year I tried peat and sand and HATED it! it was very dense and compacted to the consistincy of concrete..ick.
    So now im back to just pure Long-fibre spagnum..im going to stick with it from now on! it stays nice and open, but holds water great..and all the wild Sarracenia I have ever seen grow in it naturally..I dont know what Cps grow naturally in peat and sand! never really saw the point of that particular mix myself..

    so no..there is no need to repot! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
