Pinguicula martinezii is one of the Mexican butterworts, from the state of Queretaro. Originally discovered in the Sierra Gorda mountains by Sergio Zamudio, and reported growing at 2200m by Fernando Rivadavia in 2008. Mexican Pings prefer a loose, open soil. We use an all mineral mix which contains an aquatic planting medium based on arcilite, a common clay-based mineral used in soil-less planting mixes. Also includes silica sand and a very small amount of iron oxide. Another good mix is composed of 1 part each of peat, sand, vermiculite, perlite and pumice. Shipped bare root, carefully wrapped in damp sphagnum.
