    It would be one equal handful of each; or one gallon of each; or ten gallons of each; or one liter of each. The actual amount doesn't matter, but the ratio means roughly equal amounts.

    For 2:1 it would be 2 handfuls of one and 1 handful of the other; Or 2 gallons of one and 1 gallon of the other; etc.

    LOL! I get stray sundews popping up in ping pots and D. mad... isn't a very sensitive plant. Pings tend to want an airier mix than sundews, but with what you are talking about, it isn't that critical. Accommodate the ping and the sundew will be fine.

    well i transplanted the butterwort using hopefully what i think is 1:1 peat and perlite and it was pretty easy, it barely had any roots.
    the sundew however, was a pain. as i lifted up the plant, it seems that the pot was filled with roots and all of the sundews that were on top of the soil were actually all connected to each other. it looked as if the adelae was growin on the same root as the madagascariensis
    i tried to get all of the roots out safely, but i ended up breaking all of them
    so now i have transplanted pots of a butterwort and a single sundew and three sundews
    i hope they all survive
