Some Drosera are slightly picker. I'm sure most would *survive* in a similar mix though if you change the ratios they'll do better. For instance, Anglica and Affinis like heavier peat in their soil. Petios tend to like sandier, tuberous like sandier. For the most part though, I find myself doing something like 45/45/10 peat/sand/perlite. That's a preference though, it allows the soil to be more free draining. As long as it has enough peat in it, the moisture should be enough for the plants. Another mix I tend to gravitate towards is 40/50/10 or 40/60 peat/sand with perlite. I use those that for most Byblis, Sarracenia, and Cephalotus. A lot plants can grow in most anything, it's more about how well they do in that media. It'll grow but probably won't grow as "well"
