Which substrate for Pinguicula gypsicola?


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I will receive soon one Pinguicula gypsicola.

May I use for it the same substrate that I use for my other Mexican Pings? Would it fit? I don't know where I could find gypsum...

Thank you for your help.

You can find gypsum on ebay

Most of mine are growing well in my standard inorganic mix, perlite, pumice, sand, cat litter, volcanic rock and small amount of peat etc.  I also have some in the same mix but topped with a 5mm layer of crushed gypsum, also growing well.  So far I can't tell much difference.
