long sphag moss is a great medium.
i mist mine daily.

i fed one single maggot to one plant, none to the other. u can see which one got the maggot ;)
its been about 2mths since the first feed, so now i'm feeding the small one and not the tall one

in much the same way koala bear is incorrect (no relation to a bear) a cobra lilly is not actually a lilly. (cobra plant)

good luck with it, W. its up there in my top 3 fav plants. :mrgreen:

I will get some seedlings in the post to you on monday hopefully, with a little sphagnum.

You could just plant little plugs of spag with the seedlings in a peat mix, and eventually the sphagnum will spread and outgrow the little seedlings. They will probably be ok on a windowsill or under lights untill the spring and you could move them outside possibly.
