California Carnivores Professional Grade Peat and Perlite Mix

$ 12.99

This mix is ideal for American pitcher plants, Venus flytraps, most Sundews, and bladderworts.

This one-gallon bag is made up of about 1 part perlite to 4 parts professional grade peat moss. We use only the highest quality ingredients with our plants and you can too! Our peat moss is the Sunshine brand, professional-grade, milled Canadian sphagnum peat moss. The professional-grade usually isn't available at retail nurseries and costs about twice as much, but is a much finer quality.

One bag will roughly fill 12 of our 2" pots.

Mixing Instructions:

Mix all of the peat and perlite together in a large bowl. Be sure and wet it with distilled/rainwater before you begin mixing. This will keep the perlite dust to a minimum which is harmful to breathe in. Keep adding water and mixing until it is very soppy wet. Now you're ready to pot 'em up!

When purchasing your own peat and perlite at another nursery or hardware store, Beware of the MiracleGrow brand! There are added fertilizers that are harmful to carnivores.

Amazing quality. I used this to repot all of my mutated fly traps into one bog.

Excellent mix and very healthy Drosera capensis 'wide leaf' Potted

The care taken to ship my plant amazed me. It is so healthy and has dew on it while happily eating the fungus gnats. I have her inside under a grow light w/a humidifier because I live in the Phoenix area. When I want more carnivoris plants this is the company I will be buying from. Also their videos are so educational.
