    That should work fine. In "Savage Garden" there's a picture of one growing in an abalone shell so I really don't think you should worry about the medium. Just make sure it's got good drainage. 70% 30% will have good drainage so yeah it should work.

    For my Mexican Pings, I mix together equal parts peatmoss, pumice, silica sand, perlite, and I almost forgot, vermiculite! This has produced some nice results. I recommend rinsing it all very well before potting up the moranensis.

    best of luck,

    Homer

    You know Homer, comments like that could force another "what do you pot your ping's in?" debate. I can think of more than two handful's of people who all use different media. And that my friends is one of the reasons I love Pinguicula.

    I hope not. I'm not one for a debate.

    Sounds like the first mixture I used for ping's windplant.

    Just remember, most CP's like lot's of love from a distance. They like it when you pay attention to them, but also seem to like being left alone to do their own thing.
