Willy's Pings


Great plants and photos as allways Willy. Your P. 'Weser' x cyclosecta is an interesting cross. Well done.

I have a 'fake' P. "Weser' which is in flower at the moment but all my P. cyclosecta are a sleep and wil not flower until around November here in NZ. KP.

Thank you! I have placed some of the seeds in TC, hoping that they will grow. The rest are placed on peat mix, hoping to see germination soon!

very nice ping

for me peat is not a good substrat for a lot of pinguicula , most of them are from limestone soil ( temperate, mexican, caribbean)

see their 'in situ' conditions

Hi Jeff.
Many years ago I saw in your forum a mix for Mexican that don't use peat.
It was cat litter for the main part...
I still have a picture:

So I would say:
  • cat litter
  • Perlite
  • Vermiculite
  • Lava stone
Maybe some aquarium sand...
But I don't know the recipe.
