    I was actually in prime Droso habitat earlier this month and I can tell you right now there's not a nugget of peat for miles. They mainly grow in eroded gravel. Turface might be a good option, since they grow in a really loose mix.

    Do they like alkaline conditions, as I believe that vermiculite has the potential to become so?

    I have 6 plants, all a little over 1 year old. My potting mix is vermiculite, perlite and peat - 1:1:1
