@hungry carnivores, How do you go about doing that? I've reused some moss that was still in decent shape but you bake it?

I buy Besgrow brand from Amazon. Although the past 2 years I been trying it on a few flytraps and honestly they don't do any better in it over peat/perlite. I much prefer peat and perlite. It's easier to remove from the roots during re-potting (it basically just falls away from the roots on it's own). It's messier but to me easier.

I did not know that there was a premium grade version of Better Gro sphagnum moss until you just brought this up, and apparently I've been using it this whole time. Huh.

I wonder if the 5 star and 2 star batch sometimes get mixed up because sometimes I find a clump of the poorer quality stuff mixed in with the premium grade.
