    it'll probably be a little peat and mostly Mosser Lee LFS with some perlite.

    I grow mine in equal parts of peat moss, perlite and LFS.
    I have 2 flower stalks coming up right now.

    (The middle flower in my sig is from the last time my U. longifolia flowered)

I was wondering if all of the leaves are roundish or if some blade-of-grass looking ones are found. OR are there indeed some pieces of grass growing in this pot?
    It does not sound like you are growing longifolia, as the leaves on the species are not round, they are long and ribon-like. You may have tricolor, the grass being aborted flower stems...

    not exactly round but not all grass-like. If Sarracenia NW stuck a "U.longifolia" tab in the pot, I believe them. It looks just like the photos that I've seen (complete with absence of flowers!)

    Grasslike invaders are likely to be either U. bisquamata or subulata. Here's a pic of U. longifolia:

    Mine looks a bit different. I have had it for a couple of years, but it is nowhere near the size of jimscott's:

    Does what you describe look like these?

    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.
