    My Pinguicula plants do very well in a sphagnum peat/sand mix of about 50/50, usually with more emphasis on sand. I use well water for mine and they do fine. The well water here is highly filtered, so I am sure that reduces the mineral content. I recently visited a nursery that waters them with unfiltered well water and the plants were quite robust. I have heard that Mexican Pinguicula can even be watered with city water, but I would not try it.

    As far as other environmental aspects go, they are shaded by other plants or in windows that do not get a lot of midday sun.

    I have Pirouette and Esseriana (and MANY others) in my collection, they seem to do fine.

    They are just in ceramic pots and are pretty much treated like all of the other plants in the house. I have some new ones coming in soon, so I wanted to wait until they get here before I photograph the collection.
