    Pinguicula moctezumae!

    So I am aware of my media choices and the pluses and minuses of each but out of curiosity, I thought I might I ask for pics of this plant along with a description of what the plant is growing in so I can get an idea of what the plants think

    Thanks!

    It seems to do best in LFS!

    Pure peat works great for me, but I use that for a lot of Mexican pings with great success. I go from completely sopping wet, to pretty dang dry and repeat.

    i may just have to change my mix now haha, i used perlite, peat, and vermiculite, 1:2:.5, i like the idea of just peat being simple and very effective

    Mine slowly died when I did that. I was given a second chance by the one sho sent me a plant and suggested that I use LFS. So that's what I did. Radical difference!

    I think the wetter mixes work when you have good light. If you don't- it probably won't work so well. As always, some media works better for me, some other may work better for you. But it's promising with jimscott growing nice plants in a media that is also pretty wet.
