   Thank-you for such a great letter! I was really impressed with all
that info. I have to say, though, some CP's really do like carbonate.
Pinguicula, and sometimes, Drosera and Sarracenia quite well in basic
soils. I do not understand how it's possible with two latter genus,
but it is.
  Also, my friend, Tom Hayes, used marble (quite a bit, infact)
is a terrarium filled with many types of CP, most of which are
of the acid loving sort...
