    Hi, I was wondering about a few things about mexi Pings.

    Soil: Would a mix of 4 parts peat,6 parts perlite,and 1 part crushed (to the consistensy of fine gravel) limestone be fine?

    Water: Since these plants like calcium would well water be fine? And how wet do they like it?

    Pots: Would clay be fine since these plants like calcium?


    Thanks for any help,
    Noah.

    Can't answer all the questions, but I have grown these plants in clay pots. I have never tried limestone in the mix, but it should be fine. Not sure about the well water, but Pinguiculaman mentioned that esseriana thrived in a humid cactus house and they were watered with regular tap water that was allowed to sit.
    The amount of water necessary depends on where the plants are located. I usually keep the mexican pings wet during most of the year, until they form(if they do) winter rosettes.
