    Hi Chrissy. I have used orchid compost and it works fine. I think the key if using ordinary compost is to use it sparingly and mix in loads of grit and bark for example. They are pretty robust in my experience and also over winter well in my greenhouse (east of Scotland).

    fine graded bark is perfect for Sarracenia's, mix in some milled sphagnum moss to give a little water retention.
    you want a 70% bark - 30% moss mix
  • Thanks both will give it a try.
