Growing carnivorous plants in a pot by its own is not nice, can you imagine yours lovely CP growing on top of chocklat, yellowish and blackish death spagnum moss? Somemore, after sometime, it will melt and become clay look blackish stuff? Yucky!!!

How about we have a pot of CP with a green carpet, and some others non-CP, it sound nice, right?

 1 of famous plant are – live spagnum moss (will explore it next time). On top of live spagnum moss, I also grow a common Eriocaulon sp. that can be found at local river side at CP pot. The plant need a lots of sunlight and water to grow nicely. So, it is suitable side by side with sarracenia, venus fly trap and drosera. I havent try the Eriocaulon sp.  with nepenthes yet. Must try that later… Eriocaulon sp. will produce attena looks flower, and it can be collected and plantlet will grow from there!!!!
