    Pinguicula media tryouts

    So the hydroponics shop I work with (see Nepenthes Showcase thread) gave me a free sample bag of Hydrolite (http://www.botanicare.net/grow-substrates/hydrolite) to try out. This is the test run picture thread of my experience with it. Along with a few extra pics of some of my other favorite pinguicula species.

    Poopy photobucket has been down for 24 hours.. They should be viewable once the maintenance is done. But at least we have Harvey to keep us company in the meantime.

    The label (difficult to read) says it has nitrogen, phosphate, potash and calcium in soluble form. Probably not enough to make Pinguicula unhappy, the calcium might even help with some species/hybrids. You never know though. Keep us posted. Do you have control groups using typical Pinguicula substrate?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Looks a bit like the Calcium Silicate cat litter I used to use for my cats, though hydolite is not the same material. I often wondered if Mexican pings would grow in Calcium Silicate, though never wondered enough to try it, especially as they seem to be very happy in general multi-purpose potting compost
