Hey folks, it's been a long time since I grew flytraps (about 3 years). I had two typicals I rescued from death cubes at my local Rona. For a year they were great, they bounced back so well. One day though I went out to check on them after their first dormancy and the pots were tipped over and the plants completely gone- a squirrel or rabbit must've gotten into them, I was devastated

Onto my real question though, I have a bag of peat moss and perlite in my garage from back then and I was wondering if they were still suitable to use or if I should get fresh bags. I recently found a Canadian supplier who actually has *almost* as many cultivars as the FlyTrap Store here. I ordered two King Henry's and would like to have them for many, many years.

Thanks in advance, and I'm looking forward to getting back into the community!
