    As far as I know it's not known by any other name. I had trouble finding peat moss first time I went to Lowes to get it. Nobody knew what I was talking about. Do you live in the US? If so I'm sure somebody here will be glad to mail you some. If nobody else will, then let me know and I'll mail you some. You need to get it repotted soon so if one place don't have it go somewhere else.

    Question

    Paul,
    As you are in the UK, try the CPUK forum. Someone there may be able to help you. There's also a gentleman there by the name of Plantsman who is selling a peat free compost mix that you might check into if you can't find sphagnum peat moss.

    Check the bags of peat lable of contents to see if it is New Zealand or Canadian sphagnum peat moss. Both are good. You may be able to get long fiber sphagnum (LFS) instead. It's unshreaded shagnum moss. Sphagnum is sometimes called spagnum in the UK, I have noticed. Hope this helps.

    go to the garden section of a super store. Go look by the perlight and other soil additives. See the bag labled Sphagnum peat, buy that, grab the perlight while your their, mix it up and use that as your soil.

    Please note, do not change how you waterd! If you overwater that plant in the winter it WILL get root rot and die. In fact, it is probubly your light watering that kept it alive at all.

    CHANGE THAT SOIL! You should have no problem finding sphagnum peat. It's the word moss that throws people off, they think you want a moss, not a soil base.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    How many years do you let your vft sit in the same soil? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
