    I got water tanks outisde, with rain's water inside... In the beginning, i use this water for all of my carnivorous plants...
    one day i had just a little bit water in tanks, so i keep the water for plants like VFT , sundews etc.... and so i try the tap water with pings... i never see any problems, so now i only use tap water for pings..
    I dont know how many ppm NO3 is inside, but i just make the experience, and when it works...it works !
    don't forget that pings are growing in wild in very bad conditions, so i think they have adaptation skills... pings are kind of warrior plants :-p

    ' in situ'

    the water is essential for them (and other plants from their environments) if the water is polluted, must sooner or later there will be case sensitive

    the ping for me do not adapt to new climatic conditions and environments that are not theirs.

    in cultivate

    often in non hydroponics we have problems on some species

    for hydroponics I think the problem that's life of duration of the plant, but maybe some people can speak ?

    It depends on the species. P. lusitanica is said to be an annual, although I think I have had a plant live at least 2 years. There are so many seedlings produced each year that it is difficult to keep track of a single plant.

    For others, I don't think there is an age limit. I have had the same P. 'Titan', P. 'John Rizzi', P. macroceras nortensis, P. grandiflora, and others for over 10 years. I have no reason to think they may eventually die other than by gross neglect or some disaster.

    Concur. In my conditions P. lusitanica lasts more than one year. Might be more if I were to remove flowers.
