    My only Ping! lol Will have another flower up soon. Can I pollinate this relatively easy or are the offspring around the base easier to start than pollination and collection of seed?

    Cheers!

    My plant has not flowered in the 2 1/2 years I've had it.
    I started with 1 in the pot and now I probably have 15 or so. They are extremely easy to propagate from left cuttings.

    So use the little plantlets and try leaf cuttings is what you'd recommend correct? Also, does this plant have like a dormant stage where it produces non-carnivorous leafes for a short time?

    This is a mexican ping so it may, but does not need to, produce the tight non-carnivorous rosette of leaves in the "winter". Leaf cuttings work wonders with this plant use pinguicula man's method: Method

    P. esseriana does make winter leaves and they are very easy to propagate. That being said, seed is always the better option as you end up with more genetic diversity. I haven't been overwhelmingly successfull in pollinating pinguicula, but if you should fail, that doesn't prevent you from vegetative propagation.
