Subject: repotting Drosera

Sorry if I'm asking a previously asked question, but here goes.... :)

I have some Drosera that I want to repot in a larger container. Right
now, they're planted in pure sphagnum peat moss, but I think it would be
better for the plant to pot it in a peat/sand mix, approx. 50% of each.
Suggestions? I'm not sure what kind of Drosera it is. I bought it at
Lowe's, and I'm assuming it is tropical, b/c the growing instructions
said nothing about dormancy. It's about three inches tall (7.5 cm), and
the leaves are about an inch (2.5 cm) long and about 1/4 of an inch
wide. Any ideas on identification? It was propagated thru TC.

BTW, got my copy of _The Savage Garden_. Wonderful book!
