    Going with two 4 inches is probably a good idea. The recipe is up to you; some people go straight sphagnum, straight peat, or perlite 'n sphag', or peat 'n perlite.

    I myself use 100% peat, but it couldn't hurt to throw in a little perlite.

    I use 50/50 peat sand mix in 3 or 4 inch drained pots. The pots sit in a tray with about 1 inch of water in it. VFT's are like D. capensis for me, I just yank them out and stick them in a new pot and away they go.

    Get deep pots if you can. A four inch diameter pot is fine, but I notice appreciably better growth when I have my 'traps in pots six inches or deeper. I think they like being a ways above the water table - it's probably the extra air getting to the roots or something.
