Carnivorous Blend

A mix of peat, silica sand and perlite, this specialized potting medium is suitable for temperate carnivorous plants like Venus fly traps, sundews and Sarracenia pitcher plants. This water retentive and acidic growing medium replicates the bog habitat in which these plants are found in the wild.

Not suitable for nepenthes.


Our Carnivorous Blend is packaged in recycled paper bags that are 60% compostable and 40% biodegradable. These bags are lined with PLA, a biodegradable, corn-based material that strengthens and improves the durability of the bag. While PLA is compostable in many jurisdictions, it is not yet accepted in Vancouver’s green bin program. Please responsibly dispose of these bags by placing them in the trash.
