P. caerulea

This is Tom Hayes and I was just wondering how other people
grow P. caerulea? I have several plants that are flowering and
setting seed, but they don't seem happy. I have them in 50/50
peat sand and in filtered sunlight. Every other species of ping
from the SE US grows in the same tray and looks great. They sit in
water occasionally, but never for extended periods. They just
like to wilt and turn to mush every once in a while. Any idea why?
I never have any problems with the rest which are all in the same
conditions. I have seen P. lutea and P. caerulea growing along side
each other, so can I assume they require similar conditions? I don't
have the problem with P. lutea though.

Any comments/similar experiences would be appreciated.
