I bought a venus fly trap a month before I bought this product. I wanted my venus fly trap to be in a bigger pot so I bought some standard planting soil. And almost immediatly it started dying. I did some research and found that they need peat moss so I immediately bought this product. My little venus fly trap is growing like a weed now, he loves it and so do I!

This review will start with what peat moss cannot do; it cannot cure cat AIDS, it will not solve your problems with the IRS, it is incapable of time travel, and will not (not immediately at least) find you true love. That said, what can peat moss do? Before I purchased this peat moss, I was unemployed, and well, I am still unemployed but I am a student, so that is ok. However, my grades have improved and i have lost a few pounds. I can only attribute this to the superior nature of this peat moss. How so? Well, it is fine and not coarse peat moss. This makes it easier to plant in. I find its water retention capabilities to be more than adequate. Its flash point is much higher than comparably priced peat moss which is very important if you are going to use this with plants harvested from say the caldera of an active volcano as my Dionea was. At least that is where I imagine it came from. A PLANT THAT EATS FLIES!!!! That is insane! And, well the lil' bugger was on its way out before this peat moss and now it is eating flies with gusto and grace. THANK YOU HOFFMAN GOOD EARTH SPHAGNUM!!!
More?
YES!
The bag used to contain this peat moss is in the top of its class as well. It has a resealable mechanism that....... WORKS! Get out! Incredible. I assure you, if you purchase this, open it, and then desire to close it again you will be able to do so without much difficulty. All politicians lie so it is a nice change to find a bag of dirt that lives up to its claims. Pun intended? YES!
So, you have a venus fly trap and want it to thrive? Purchase this Peat Moss?
YES!
I love all of you very much.

This is a fine-milled sphagnum peat and is ideal for adding to potted plant mixes.

As far as I can tell, there are no added fertilizers in this peat, which is great for the fertilizer-sensitive plants I grow. It can be a little clumpy, but otherwise it's great.

This came as a fine, soft dirt, which I was not expecting, but it's a great product. Very easy to mix into the soil and smells nice (is that comment too strange? Probably).

I purchased this product along with perlite for potting my carnivorous plants. Packaging of the product was sealed. The moss was fresh. I only potted two plants so I have plenty left over for future uses. A little goes along way. I chose to do 50/50 mix of the peat moss and the perlite. I started in mid-summer and they have flourished since then. I would recommend this product to anyone new to growing carnivorous plants like I was

I have a decent collection of carnivorous plants which need to be potted in peat moss opposed to regular soil. This is a nice fine milled peat moss and didn't have too many clumps or sticks and stuff that needed to be broken up or pulled out. Basically, good to use right out of the bag. Holds moisture well and my plants like it, therefore I like it.

Great moss for water-saving in my deck plants. And the shipping is free with a $25 purchase from Amazon (which I can always manage).

I have a "carnivorous garden" that contains Venus fly traps, sundews and pitcher plants. I bought this as a potting medium to expand my garden and found it to be perfect for a couple of reasons:
1- There are no additives such as fertilizer. Fertilizer will kill these plants.
2- it is pre moistened; dry peat moss repels water and is difficult to get wet for the first time, so having it already moist helps in the preparation.

I grow carnivorous plants (Venus Fly Traps, pitcher plants, etc.) as a hobby, so a pure, fertilizer-free peat moss is really important. The bales at Home Depot are just too big, so I tried this Hoffman Peat Moss. Combined with perlite (3 peat to 1 perlite), this peat moss has worked perfectly. My plants are thriving, which, for VFTs and pitcher plants, is a testament to the medium. Highly recommended.
