    What kind of medium do you grow your mexican pings in?
    Equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and LFS.

    Yes, there appear to be a few seedling Pinguicula lusitanica in the bottom right corner of the photo, but there appear to be a few sprouts of Sphagnum and possibly other moss species too.

    Pinguicula esseriana has been one of my favorite Pinguicula species for a couple of decades now. Here are some photographs of the same clone in slightly differing conditions and at different times of the year:

    Wow. All the plants pictured are so beautiful! You just gotta love a ping. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I can remember when the Ping Forum had few posts. It seemed like they were not highly in favor with CP growers but now...quite a difference!

    Cindy, you definitely feed your plants with LOVE. lol

    I'm really starting to love Pings. Hopefully mine will look as beautiful someday as the ones in this post!

    I'm no Ping expert, but I have several Mexican Pings growing in my house, out in the open with relatively low humidity (20-30%) and they do great. They flower constantly and catch a ton of bugs, so I'm guessing the answer to your question is "between 20% and 40%."
