It can be tough to find peat moss for carnivorous plants since some brands contain added fertilizer which will quickly burn their sensitive roots. Add in the fact that most fertilizer-free peat only comes in large bales and it can be a real challenge to supply your plants with a safe growing media.

This is the same peat moss we use in our nursery and pre-made mixes. We recommend it for Venus Flytraps, American Pitcher Plants, Albany Pitcher Plants, Bladderworts and most Sundews.

Description

Rinsing the peat in distilled water prior to use is advisable. While we’ve seen no ill effects without rinsing, mineral content can vary from one bale to the next depending on the depth at which the peat was harvested.

Dry peat tends to be hydrophobic (water repellant), stirring the mixture while adding water can help speed up the rate of absorption.
