    Bonjour

    gypsicola is a gypsum filiforme specie , martinezii limestone and gypsum specie in a arid to semi-arid climat , then with a same substrate no problem

    peat on these specie can be nefaste , often calcareous species (not just carnivores elsewhere) do not tolerate or little, this type of substrate.

    peat is a water retender, if the collar of these plants or even their dormant form are still wet, strong chance of rot.

    see here my gypsicola actually in flower ( top left) this other filiform is a moctezumae

    Very nice plants Jeff! Thanks for sharing. I have repotted all of my Pings into a mix with almost zero peat over the last few months (sometimes I used maybe 5% peat to help the soil stick together), with the exception of 'sp. Alfred Lau #13' (based on some forum post I read about it leaking some peat in the mix, so he is in 1/3 peat)

    for this 2 species I use no peat just a mineral substrate .

    for gypsicola just pure gypsum with river sand 50/50

    for martinezii my usual substrate for all my calcareous ping (mexican-temperate)

    what mix use you ?

    These two are in my "general Pinguicula Mix" which is (approximately, I never measure) 45% Turface (technically I use an alternative product, but it is basically Turface, which is Calcined Clay) 25% perlite, 25% sand, 5% peat. Sometimes I replace 5-10% of the perlite and turface with "gran-i-grit" when I have it (which is just insoluble granite) but it is expensive (whereas turface and sand are dirt cheap!) so I have been leaving it out lately. I have also been adding some of this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003STB5N6/ to 50% of my recent mixes. I have used it in my vegetable garden with great success, but have yet to notice any results with my Pings.

    I have trouble finding gypsum locally, so I have never tried it!

    I have not. I am unsure what brand sold in the USA is similar to the brand you Europeans use. But from what I hear, turface is extremely similar, and the alternative that I buy is extremely cheap (~5$ for a bag that is bigger than my torso)
