Would it be feasible to plant tropical pings and tropical butterworts together in the same pot and medium?

I don't think they like having the same amount of water. Drosera tend to like it wetter all of the time and tropical (or at least most Mexican) Pings like it drier and have dry dormancy periods.

It’s possible if you’re willing to be creative and use a large enough pot to make a section that drains really well and/or is elevated a bit for the pings. Could also add a small lava or pumice rock partially buried in the substrate and grow the pings on that

D. venusta growing in a ping bowl. It’s planted a little lower that the pings. The nearest (lowest/wettest conditions) ping is Pirouette, Ive found it to be extremely tolerant of both wet and dry conditions
