    My best technique and advice: Propagate to have spares to experiment with.

    Here are another couple of Pinguicula cyclosecta, (Yucca Do 1714) growing in a tray with an inch of silica sand/pumice/charcoal/aquatic plant soil; 1::1::1::1.

    I keep the water level at the media surface. I allow a volunteer "rush" to grow in the corner. I keep its leaves trimmed back. I just thinned out about 10 others that were crowding this tray and am using their leaves to propagate more.

    Glenn, We have no naturally occurring pumice here in FL either but I found that some nurseries and landscaping businesses sell lava rock to use in landscaping projects. I bought a basketball size piece (too small for them to use) for a buck. Use an old wood rasp or even another rough rock to rub it into a small enough grit to use for your Pings. I have been grinding on it for about a year and still have of it left.
    Joseph, I hope I am correct about pumice being a product of lava rock?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Apparently there are many different forms of pumice, and many are useable for horticultural purposes.

    Hmm would crushed red lava rock be sufficient for pings as I have been using it for drainage on my Darlingtonia's to success.

    If you have a few propagations available for testing purposes, I'd give it a try.
