    I use the quickrete medium grade sand. The fine is very small and would be suitable for Pings/Drosera. If you really want to be 100% sure go to a pool supply place. They carry very pure uniform grade silca sand.

    The playsand I have seen was brown with lots of other stuff in it. Not something I would use personally.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
