I've been sitting back reading for a few days. I am new to CP, having only
8 newly purchased plants. Being an orchid grower, the conditions I've created
seem good for CPs. I'm a grad student in forest genetics at Michigan State.
Being interested in these for a long while I finally decided to take the
plunge. I do have a couple of questions.

1. Carnivorous Plant Newsletter has been mentioned a couple of times as a
source of info. How can one subscribe (ie. What's their address)?

2. What are the benefits of growing in spagnum moss (living or dead) as
compared to peat moss? I have both and am unsure if it makes any difference.
(Drosera and Pitcher plants)

Thanks for any help.
