    I was thinking of growing either P. caerulea or P. lutea in a pot with a kinda thick top layer of live LFS and then with the rest of the pot filled with peat/perlite. Would this be possible? Or would they slowly sink into the sphagnum? What do they grow in in the wild? I've seen several pics of P. primuliflora grown in it, but I'm not sure really on how to plant them into it.

    the pings will grow into it. i have a mini-bog like that where there is a very thick layer of sphagnum moss then a peat perilite mix below that.

    Yes I grow all of my pings in a straight perlite mixture with about an inch of a live sphagnum and peat mixture on the top and they seem to be doing fine.

    I grow mine in a 50 /50 peat and perlite mix. UC Davis uses a peat and sand mix., not sure what the portions are.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    What do you mean by the term, "S. Pings"?

    Okay, now I understand what you meant. But it doesn't fit very well, if you only meant Southern USA, since most Pinguicula come from Mexico, which, of course, is South of us, here in the USA, unless you meant to include them as well.
