I'm John from NC. I just got my venus flytrap a week or so ago, and recieving it half dead, I thought it was going die. However, after constant watering and some good window sunlight, it's seems to be doing ok (although occassionally some leaves do turn brown/black and I have to cut off). Anyway, lately I've had a deep interest in growing these things, they're just the coolest little plants ever. I wanted to order a pack of seeds, to grow awhole bunch of them in Solo (18 oz.) cups, however I wasn't sure what soil to use.
Here is part of the description on the soil that I use: "This is a mix of peat moss (60-65%) and medium grade perlite (35-40%)." I think this is perfect for VFTs, but I just wanted to make sure. The bag says "Perfect for African Violets", so I'm not sure if it can be used as the grow guide pinned at the top of this forum says stay away from African Violet soil, but all this soil is, is peat moss and perlite, so I think I'll be ok, right?
Anyway, sorry for annoying you with my newbie questions.
