Venus Fly Trap

when to put sphagnum moss with venus fly trap

I am growing a Venus fly trap from seeds. I live in the Carolinas, and I was wondering if I should lay out sphagnum moss when they start to produce traps, or lay it down while they are still a seed.

You should grow a Venus fly trap in a peat moss and sand mixture, which will provide mild acidity and help hold water without keeping soils too soggy. So, the sphagnum moss should be a part of the potting mix the venus trap resides in.
