    I grow mine in a alkaline mix of perlite, play sand, and vermiculite.

    I hear they grow in a more sandy soil. Sand, vermiculite, perlite, and stuff like that, all kept damp.

    I grow Drosophyllum outdoors in mixes of sandeaterlite, sanderlite and pure silica sand. My favorite mix so far is pure silica sand. The perlite tends to float to the top of the mix over time. In nature, this plant grows in acidic soil.

    CPK,

    Any pics? That goes for anyone else growing this, as pics are not that common.
    When I saw this thread, I thought Joseph was going to explain how he grows this plant in straight granulated peat or live sphagnum with the water level up to the soil level..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Cheers,

    Joe
