    P. lusitanica is a bog plant, so peat-based soils of many types will be fine. It ought not to be fussy about perlite and other mineral-aerators.

    Charcoal is used to maintain freshness in soil usually.

    I grow P. lusitanica on pure milled LFS, from seed, which germinates like cress when fresh.

    How are your Pinguicula lusitanica fairing now, Laura? I hope they are all springing back to life.

    Oh Corey, not too well I'm afraid. I think one of my cats was in there digging around. I saw a chewed up orchid leaf and a big fat paw print in the tray. Time to shut the doors to that bathroom. By all rights, at least those two that were putting out new growth should have survived.

    That's rough news, Laura. I put in an order for some Pinguicula lusitanica as well, so I sure do hope they work out well for you.

    No no please... you didn't put in an order for me did you? You don't even have my address. That order you placed had to be for you. I'm trying to get out of this house to leave and I'm still potting stray plants and they're not even for me and I am totally out of places with light to stash them. Boy Oh boy am I on circuitry overload.

    LOL! No, don't worry. I ordered them for me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] This species was just too "cute" to pass up.
