Seems it's usually just on top and if it dries out it basically is not a problem.
I had problems last year because we had the wettest year in NC history.
Algae comes from too wet and not enough air flow in the soil.
There is some advantage to peat sand and perlite because sludge isn't generally a issue.
I have been considering adding sand in with my lfsm. Right now the fly traps are growing only in lfsm. And I have even considered crushed perlite. Crushed because I don't really like perlite. But it works. I bought some vermiculite but I have not used it yet. I started my Sarracenia in peat sand and perlite and it's not mossy at all.
I want to try just silica sand and possibly a tiny amount of peat. Happy growing
