What is the soil it's planted in? And what do you use to water it?

Is the sphagnum on the bottom, or is the peat and perlite on the bottom?

If I were you, I would put a bit of sphagnum on the bottom (it depends on how deep the pot is) and fill the rest with peat and perlite. I recommend all temperate carnivorous plants to be potted in a peat and perlite mix.
