    Of all the growing mediums we have experimented with, dried sphagnum moss caused more Venus Flytraps to die than any other soil mix. If you plant this as a growing medium, repot your plant into 1 part peat moss and 1 part perlite immediately.

    agreed. i have a very thick layer of LFS in my mini bog and i got VFTs with traps of at least one inch...now it that bad . however underneath this layer there is a peat/LFS mixture so once the roots get down far enough then that is what it will be growing in. sooo....conclusion? LFS is good.

    I was just wondering if anyone had problems with root rot with just LFS. If you been using it for 12 years now then I guess I will keep mine in it. Maybe in the spring I will go back to peat and sand.
