    That's what I like to hear. An excuse to buy more droseras. My wife will be thrilled.

    Will adding a layer of sand (about 1") affect any of the plants? My initial thought would be "no" since I believe sand is mostly an inert material, but I could be wrong. Any advice?

    Thanks,
    Dwight

    Question

    The only problem I have had is after a while it tends to form a crust when it dries and if you top water, it washes it around and eventually you get a bit of peat mixed in with it. It works good for eliminating gnats and smothering carpet moss though. I use a fine grit sand for a top dressing in some of my pots.

    Well I had the same problem and all my plants are in my room so I did'nt want to use insecticde. So I put a bunch of sundews around the plants and planted butterworts in with the neps. So far it's worked fine for me.
    My life sucks
