Hello. I have a window box that I want to turn into a indoor bog garden. Would my vft, sundew, and trumpet pitcher be okay with only dried orchid sphagnum moss as the soil?

If its good moss, like i only use moss from New Zealand myself. I would be more concerned about proper conditions its hard to mimic temperate - full sun inside. I only grow subtropical and tropical stuff inside myself.

Like my sundew farm.

Yep LFSM is a great medium for all, so long as it has a water reservoir to draw from. But as optique says indoors is not a good location for them.
