    Hello. I have a qustion pleas. As i know P.gypsicpla grows in gypsum rocks in its natural habitat. Do you think in cultivation it can benefit with the plant instead of growing it in peat? Like i read in another thread about growing mexican pings in crushed coral. Is it becaus they apriciate calcium?


    Thanks

    P. gypsicola loves gypsum so if you have some, no problem for trying.

    Have a lookhere :
    Postcard N3
    and here :
    _Pinguicula_gypsicola_

    A lot of Mexican Pinguicula grow on gypsum or calcareous hills, cliffs, most support Ca without problem few prfer the usual peat mix or another "acidic" mix.
