Capillary matting

Recommended Posts

Just been looking at the Hampshire carnivorous plants website before visiting on Saturday.

P.cyclosecta is available and looks lovely!  The advice is to grow it on capillary matting.

So, a couple of questions, please.

What happens if it's grown in a tray half full of water?  Which other Pinguicula are best grown on matting?

Thanks, in advance.

Hi! Pheraphs I don’t understand well the question... if you use a mineral soil (sand, vulcanic lava...) for Mexican pinguiculas (the easiest one to grow) You can always keep 2 cm level of water in the try during summer... when the plant make the winter rosette, You must dry the soil... they aren quite easy to grow, especially Mexican hybrids;-)
