    I was working with mexican Pinguicula, the leaves of which are easily separated from the plant. I don't know if the temperates would appreciate soiless media.

    What I'm using came from a shipment of fruit if I remember correctly. I have seen mattresses made out of similar stuff. Try the local mattress place, some places sell custom foam mattresses and are sure to have some scraps.

    Barry Rice sent out a request for CPN submissions... I think innovative, successful growing techniques are always good to have. Perhaps you might write something up?

    Aquarium sponge filters would probably work as well.

    Sounds pretty interesting... you could definately be happy with something like that. It would make buying soil a LOT cheaper! LOL
    I have a P. Agnata that I would be gald to take leaf cuttings of to find out if they work well. I was planning on it anyway. Also, do you think that ordinary cleaning sponges would work, possibly those made of cellulose?

    My immediate thought was to question what chemicals might be on the cleaning sponges. Don't know, but a thought.

    Yeah, you'd have to make sure to use sponges with no chemicals, and find something that doesn't rot. Even then, its risky.

    You could probably was it thoroughly... what about something like a sea sponge at the pet store? They would have to be chemical free in order to be safe for pets would they not?
