    The 50:50, peat : silica sand is a good go-to mix for CPs, I approve! It definitely helps keep my Sarracenia planted. If you ever need cheap peat go to your local home improvement store. I was able to get 3 cubic feet of fertilizer-free peat moss for $10! Granted it's got a decent amount of debris, I just sift through it. For the price it can't be beat

    I love your plants, KKP! I've always liked Drosera filiformis.
    And yes, I too have money invested in my plants, about one hundred ten dollars (US) if each pot sold for ten dollars. Of course, a few probably WOULD sell for more than ten dollars, so I most likely have more.

    Thanks man I'm loving this new hobby. I found myself at a local gardening center earlier today (Sunday) I found some additive free peat and as I'm checking out I see a couple of VFTs in death cubes that looked well taken care of and I dug through the collection and and found a decent looking Sarra. Who could resist buying plants found in death cubes that are in good condition. Ill post pictures up soon

    It's storming here all night so I'm going to let Mother Nature flush my pots. I put all of my pots on the back of my car so they get full exposure to the rain. Plus I get to collect some rain water! I repotted my VFTs in 50:50 peat and silica sand I bought another VFT today that had some pretty nice sized traps. When I was washing the old soil off of them I ended up finding that there were 2 separate plants growing #WIN!!!!!

    The Sarr in with the Daina's Delight is a purpurea venosa or a purpurea hybrid. You will get a better idea once it settles in and starts perking up. The collection is looking nice, but I can tell that you are not done by a long shot. LOL Denial is the first stage of addiction.
