I bought this nice sized N. ventricosa? from Home Depot and I bought some supplies and repotted it but since it was growing in Long Fibered Sphagnum it was really hard to the LFS off of the roots without ripping the roots off! By the time I got most of the LFS off I had given up, I didn't really think it would hurt anyway so I potted it with a few strands of LFS on the roots but I just wanted to know if there was a special trick to getting it off of the roots, I tried washing it off and everything... any ideas?
BTW, I potted it in 1 part peat, 2 parts perlite, 1 part sand, 2 parts orchid bark, and 1 part long fibered sphagnum. Is that a good mix?
