I was over at the ICPS website and I ran a search for past messages of n merrilliana in the CP listserver and ran across an old thread about using laterite in CP mixes. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with this material. I did a search on google on laterite and I think that I've seen it around here in PR. It looks alot like the clay under the topsoil of my back yard, which is sort of reddish. Could that be a local type of laterite here? Just wondering what you ppl think. I'll see if I can post a pic of my reddish clay tomorow.
BTW: The search page for the Cp listserver is http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cplist/Search.php
