Carnivorous Plant Soil with 2 Planters-Transplant Kit
This is the kit you need to transplant the Venus Fly Traps and Sundews once they outgrow the terrarium. The kit contains:
1. Two 2.5" Plastic planters.
2. A freezer bag of soil containing 50/50 ratio of sphagnum peat moss and silica sand, more than enough to fill the 2 planters to halfway mark. (For the Venus Fly Trap, you will need to fit the plant inside the pot and drape saran wrap over the pot to begin acclimating the plant from high humidity terrarium conditions to real world humidity. The Sundew is not picky about humidity conditions and will not need humidity acclimation. Daily leaf misting is good enough. )
3. Transplant instructions.
You will need to provide saran wrap and distilled water to complete the supplies that you would need. For our small carnivorous terrariums, a single kit will more than enough to pot all the transplants. If you purchased a large Venus Flytrap terrarium that is full of plants ready to transplant, I would recommend 2 kits to give your plants enough space.
If you would just like the soil without planters, we sell just the soil. The soil is the same amount as offered in the kit, enough to adequately fill 2 small 2.5" planters to just below the top mark, or fully pack a standard single 3" planter. When you are starting flytraps, you need a deep pot so the roots can grow down. There is no need for a wide pot, which would require extra unnecessary soil.
In order to keep costs low for our customers, we give you just the right amount of soil that you need so that a single transplant kit can be shipped via First Class at $3.50. Otherwise, too much soil bumps the weight over 1 lb, and shipping goes up to $7.70.
You can view our transplant page for the procedure and also a video tutorial that includes how to easily break the jar in order to take out the plant. Have fun transplanting!
