    I have them in sphag, peat moss, perlite, and a very small amount of bark chips

    Very cool plant but I think you posted the wrong picture of your Nepenthes burbidgeae...

    What proportions are you using? Highlanders tend to like pretty airy soil so it's not common to use peat with them.

    Also I'm going to second the statement that it does not look like N. burbidgeae, more like N. burbidgeae x campanulata.

    I'm using quite a bit of peat, I'll have to buy some perlite and change it out asap, thank you. And actually I forgot to include the x campanulata thanks for pointing that out. I'll go fix that lol.

    A good default mix for Nepenthes is equal parts LFS and perlite, though you can add some orchid bark in there too.

    Long fiber sphagnum - it's just an easy shorthand for dried sphagnum moss. It's often sold as orchid moss if you have any of that lying around.
