    That depends on what technique you are using to grow your plants. My technique involves keeping them wet, very wet, year-round. How I grow Mexican Pinguicula

    every single one of the 10 or so leaves i pulled off my 2 plants have cute little nubbins of growth on them now. what should i move them to to send down roots? i dont know ping mediums very well =P they are in 100% vermiculite atm.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Mexican Pinguicula can be grown in an extremely large variety of media. Mixing and matching media ingredients to make your own preferred combination is part of the fun of growing these attractive little plants. I've grown them successfully in various combinations of -- peat moss, perlite, charcoal, pumice, vermiculite, coral, gypsum, LF sphagnum moss, silica sand, aragonite, ground fir bark, and small aquarium gravel. I'm sure I overlooked several other media ingredients -- they are very adaptable. Especially when growing them in an all-mineral media, it is suggested to feed them just a little, periodically.
