Ideal for growing all types of carnivorous plants.
During their evolution, carnivorous plants have developed systems to capture and digest insects, which is why they are called ‘carnivorous’ or ‘insectivorous’. They require an acidic substrate (pH less than 5) that is devoid of nutrients, particularly nitrogen, which is absorbed by the plant by digesting animal proteins. Due to the presence of Baltic peat, the substrate maintains its acidity and drainage capacity while increasing water retention. Baltic peat makes the substrate soft and maintains an acidic pH, which is essential for the growth of these types of plants. The peat makes the soil softer and better draining while increasing water retention and supplying organic matter. Select perlite increases aeration, with positive effects on the roots and plant development.
