This is my first attempt at growing Sarra seeds. I have been using a half sand half pine bark mix for my established plants with good results and thought it would be ok for seedlings. After a bit of reading around I found a few people saying peat and peat only for seedlings as there are micro nutrients not found in other mixes without which seedlings will die.......so now im a little worried. Has anyone else found their seedlings die a painful peat less death? Now the pitchers are developing I hit them with some maxroids. Its mid autumn and using lights next to a window that gets good sun for at least 6 hours and a heat pad.
haven't tried it myself, but looks like it's just fine. As long as you have the right particle size and you adjust the environemnt according to the needs of the seedlings, I see no reason why this won't work. However, if your peatless substrate is too salty, that can cause an issue.
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
