    i've had good luck with schultz brand peat moss. fyi, when you're looking at bags for peat moss, just look at the back. 99% of the time, there is a little table that tells you what, exactly, is in the product.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] Huh, that's weird, when I repotted my VFTs in Scotts Sphagnum Peat Moss, my plants went into shock for about three days but now they are doing just fine, the traps are now closing and I now see another offshoot appearing.

    Well this goes to show that peat quality varies widely depending on where it was harvested. I just made a reply to a post regarding rinsing peat with the how's and why's and you might want to check it out.

    I just ran out of peat, and I'm in the middle of moving unhappy plants out of pots too small for them.

    My local Home Depot only has Scott's peat.

    (I hate Home Depot.)

    Has anybody had their plants killed by Scott's peat in the last five years?

    Thumbs up

    I just emailed Scotts about there sphagnum peat moss and they said that they don't add fertilizer and that if they had that the law requires that they say so on the packaging.
