Thank you Richard!
My substrate is composed of sand N ° 3, peat, aqualite, granulated clay for the cuttings
For the mother plant the substrate is composed of sand, sand cat litter and gypsum in the form of crushed "sand rose"

Thanks Lucien. Do you have to add much gypsum or granulated clay? I'm thinking about mine.

J'ajoute environ une pincée d'argile granulée pour un pot de 7x7. Du sable # 3 environ 4 pincées, et le reste du pot de sable rose concassé fin et moyen  (désert de gypse, ou concrétion de calcaire)

best substrate for gypsicola is pure soft travertine. or aerated concrete brick is also good.

Just don't let the pot share the tray with other CPs which will object to the calcium leeching out into the traywater.
