I especially like the calderoniae. How do you grow it? Is it difficult?
I have some P. calderoniae for about a year now and I don´t see that this plant is more difficult than P. medusina or heterophylla. I grow it in a light soil mixture with peat, a little bit sand, vermiculite, perlite. I don´t use any lime although it´s habitat offers large lime amounts. The plants grows on a south facing windowsill with several hours of direct sunlight. A little bit higher humidity is favoured I think, especially when the plant starts to grow from winter rosette. Grow periode started a little bit late, compareable with P. medusina. The pot of the plant stands nearly all time in a little bit water, the airy soil provides the plant to stand to wet, but from even this shouldn´t be critical.
Same questions from me
Hi chris,wat is the difference between calderoniae and heterophylla or medusina ,or even gypsicola?Wat makes this plant so special ?The name ?
I agree that this is quite expensive, but this year the plant is already cheaper than last year. ;-)
30 Euro for one plant by BCP is a lot of money,but growers that want one ,now you know where to find
Nice looking flowers!
