    12.5% vermiculite
    12.5% oolithic calcareous sand ( find here in my country)

    these % are just approximate
    So the approximate amount of mineral substrate is 100%?
    With absolutely no peat in it?

    Sounds very strange to me. For my second try with P. vallisneriifolia (and some others) I mixed this year:
    40% peat
    40% crushed limestone gravel
    20% auqarium sand

    If this doesn't work, perhaps I better should get informed about the several hundred brands of cat litter sold in Germany and find out, what ingredients they are made from.

    I just saw, that I forgot to show some pictures with more than just one flower of this species.

    A bunch of P. macroceras ssp. nortensis and a single flower of P. grandiflora (in the background):


    P. grandiflora plant removed, pure P. macroceras ssp. nortensis:


    Another view of my macroceras mini-bog:

    This one is a very easy species in my climate and the rate of reproduction is incredible.

    The only thing I have to do in February is: Remove the huge amounts of small winter gemmae from the winter resting buds and spread them on the peat surface. And keep the peat in the mini-bog moist all the time. A good fraction of the small gemmae will grow to flowering size plants within 12 months.

    Is Pinguicula macroceras subsp. nortensis a valid subspecies? Barry Rice does not think it is. See:
