    very very good idea like presentation .

    but the substrate problem rest , have you try cat litier or pure gypsum for the P. medusina ?

    for me it is the light that makes the leaves more or less red, nothing more.

    I have often considered creating such a natural looking artificial Pinguicula substrate, but just couldn't justify (to myself) using that much space for so few plants. Still, I may do so, some day - it has such an appealing appearance.

    Cat litter? Is that the clumping type? I have two cats, and have a super-clumping type litter. Non-clumping type was a disaster(for potty purposes).
    Is pure gypsum more beneficial for P. medusina? I currently have them in APS mix with little bit of peat moss added to it.

    LOL. You can be soo funny! I can't wait to have summer so I can put these outside with the sun. My kitchen countertop is getting a bit cramped with bunch of pots here and there. I am going to make it a bit more pleasing to the eye, otherwise my DH will have a fit(he's got small case of OCD)

    hehe, how about outside in the sun? only if I had a house with a backyard, they all will be outside in full sun most of the time!(minus the winter)!
    Now, I only have to cross my fingers and hope that the plants will actually end up ok, and not worse!

    I use for my mexican and for some temperate this substrate

    cat litier (non-clumping and unscented) 50%
    river sand 12.5%
    pouzzolane 12.5%
    oolithic calcareous sand 12.5%
    vermiculite 12.5%

    now I use in my 50% to cat liter 20% akadama ( bonza´ clay)

    P. medusina is a gypsicole specie , 'in situ' they grow in pure gypsum , I use for these gypsicole species just pure gypsum + river sand 50/50

    How about a mix of crushed coral and APS for them?

    It was late one evening, and I was searching for P. Gypsicola [Edit: The name is actually Pinguicula gypsicola or P. gypsicola, the second part of plant names are always written in all lower case.] online to purchase and serendipitously ran into several images from that thread (from Google Images).
    LOL I then proceeded to purchase 25lbs of Plaster of Paris from Blick art store that evening- speaking of being impulsive!
