    Cultivation Experiment

    Hi, I just print a cut-size version of the pot for only one plant species for testing the equipment. Else, instead of my mixed mineral compost, I go to use a special fine quartz. It has a very capillarity action on water, so all the compost will be uniformly watering. I have also not covered the empty space with perlite, but let only water being in.

    Pinguicula experiment

    Cultivation Experiment

    It could be convenient if the plastic come from a press stamp. With 3D printing a pod with big dimension (like 270 x 310 x 80 mm) uses aroud 7€ of plastic filament (this is an extimated by the program) and arount 15 to 20h to finish. The photos were taken just when I insert them into the pod, maybe I can make new photo tomorrow after around 8 months of usage. I never used fertilization in Pinguicula, they just catch all insects.

    Cultivation Experiment

    hi, no actually the species that remain are around 40/45 in very few pods. But as the experiments is going very good, I planned to port all to this system, so I can grow them with just give attention to them 1 day a week in Summer and 1 day a month in Winter. I will have a 3D printer with a larger X/Y plane so I can create the custom pod with good space even for bigger pinguicula and maybe create pod more little for little pinguicula specie. At thi point I can put the pods into a bookcase with shelves and utilize space in height, so I can still go to cultivate 100 species in the same x/y space as before when I used the common pods. .

    The experiment goes very well. In winter no problem (essentially very few water every month). Now, water every week (a glass of water). Actually I uses 6 box (6*4=24 species) and other 2 box is in the making. However I go ahed and for reduce the manual time of building them, I will go to use 3D plastic printing. I think they will be ready for September.

    Here the first box that is ready. It contains plants and minerals: Pinguicule esseriana / Quarzo Morione (Arkansas, USA) Pinguicula spec. Tonala / Cobaltocalcite rosa (Zaire) Pinguicula colimensis x gigantea White Flower / Piromorfite (Hunan, Cina) Pingucula x Weser / Vanadinite rossa (Mibladen, Marocco)
