Could jot get any peat moss here where there are no fertilizers and there are even some sellers who sell pewt koss but does not indicate which moss was used.

My only option now is to try using Klassmann TS3 anyone have used this and did you do any preparation before using it?

Chemical components: Sphagnum Peat Moss with Lime and mineral NPK fertilizer, wetting agent
This peat moss is not usable with carnivorous plants due to the added lime and fertilizer.
Thank you egen if you soak them in watee ro dissolve them its still unuseable? Probably thats why.

I always get typo when using my phone. If there is one im sorry.

It is difficult to wash off the minerals and fertilizers. This is the same problem that we have in the United States with Miracle-Gro peat moss and perlite.

Does Klasmann sell any plain peat moss?

Been on their site the Lithuanian Peat moss does not have the fertilizer. When I first started the hobby I used ts3 but the plants died like mushy stuff. I even tried to rinse and soaled it for days before using. Just ordered ts3 to try it again but decided if someone uses the ts3 here as I dont want some of my new akai ryu and b52 to die off.

The Lithuanian peat moss looks good. We get most of our peat moss from Canada.

If the price isn't ridiculous, you can use Klasmann's coir pith (0 - 6mm) as a peat moss substitute, after it has been thoroughly rinsed to remove any lingering salt.
