    Pinguicula grandiflora < Can anyone tell me the best media to use here...

    Hi

    Irish Moss peat and perlite

    Or

    John Innes No1, topped with sharp sand or grit to stop leaves getting fine soil in their pores

    Or

    John Innes No1, with sharp sand in the mix

    Will either mix work on this plant...

    Thanks Noddy

    I use 100% live sphagnum. They grow well in it AND it really helps with keeping the hibernacula from rotting during the winter.
