    And where do you get those bees from too? They seem to be great as a food source.

    Straight APS (Schultz's Aquatic Plant Soil), except for the P. debbertiana which is a sand/APS mix. You'd have to ask Peter (pingman) the ratio as that plant was from him.

    Those are flightless fruit flies, fungus gnats and the tiny black specks are springtails. There's a squished mealybug on one leaf to!

    Great cultivation. Although counterintuitive, it's always sad to me to see such beautiful Pinguicula covered in bugs. They really ruin the aesthetic appearance of Pinguicula, lol.

    Thanks Jim, it's hard to believe the P. moranensis x ehlersiae came in one of your tiny bubble gum capsules just a few months ago. It's nearly filling the 2.5 inch pot!

    I had been feeding them powdered dried bloodworm which doesn't leave as visible traces. After I bought a pot of Byblis liniflora the black springtails started peppering the leaves. My local springtails are either white or pale tan and don't seem to leave many visible traces.

    Since I've started raising flightless fruit flies to feed my Sarracenia and Drosera seedlings I've begun using them on all my indoor CPs. These are somewhat "superflies" as a high percentage of them seem to be able to struggle free from the Drosera and Pinguicula. Not having wings must be an advantage in this situation. I often have to press them firmly into the goo with a toothpick or they get away.
