Mexican Butterworts tend to prefer porous substrates that are low in nutrients and provide excellent drainage while maintaining a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Buying the ingredients to make your own mix can get expensive though if you only need a small amount. This well-draining mix with crushed coral (calcium to raise the pH) makes a good substrate for Mexican Butterworts. Fill a whole pot with it or use it as a topdressing for similar benefits. Quantities are measured and shipped dry.
