    I have just ordered my first pings, 1 - primuliflora and
    1 - agnata x moranensis.
    They will arrive shortly after Thanksgiving and they will need to be repotted. I will be growing them outdoors in South Florida and need advice on the following;
    -What size pots will I need?
    -What growing medium should I use?
    -How big do these particular species get?
    -What part of the world did they originate from?
    Any other growing tips would be helpful.

    I refuse to buy any more CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    My only butterwort is p. primuliflora. mines thriving and flowering so I think I can help with that one. It is in the PFT potting medium. (it may say what that is on their site if you click on plant accessories in the shopping home section). It is in a terrarium about 18 gallons, with a 14 watt and a 23 watt (gotta check that actually) compact flourescent lamp, a little over a foot away from the plant. The plant has a verrrrrrrrrry lengthy photoperiod, about 14 and a half hours. The temperature is in generally from 60-70 degrees F. So. . . you will need to have a place with long sun, pretty warm, humid, and with the things in the pft mix. . . and it should do fine. Also, p. primuliflora comes from florida I think. so you should have an easy time with it. have fun!![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the info Ddude. I guess my regular 50/50 peat/peat perlite mix will work.

    Be careful of the agnata x moranensis. I have received plants labeled agnata x moranensis that are actually moranensis x ehlersiae.
