    http://pinguicula.org/pages/plantes/...moctezumae.htm

    According to the Author, Pinguicula moctezumae grows on calcium carbonate concretions, in the stream bed or walls with water drainings, on wet limestone slope (I think it is Tufa) at altitudes of 900 to 1100m.

    Calcium carbonate is found in limestone, crush coral and eggshells. = CaCO3
    Gypsum = CaSO42H2O

    Unfortunately for me and my plant, the egg shells and crushed coral, mixed with peat, sand, and perlite didn't work. That does marvelously well for just about everything else Mexican.

    i thought for sure by now the APS crave would have converted people...

    100% APS works like a charm... has anyone tried it and not had success? seems like an easy win for pings all around...
