    Ok so I got one of these beauties for a christmas presant. My first butterwort. When it came the plant was dime-sized and its leaves had all fallen off and the plant was up rooted. the leaves were scattered about and i was wondering can I root these leaves even if it is such a small plant? I tried to replant the uprooted ones and to my surprise there were two sets. I will get pictures soon. Help me on this and any other things to do to it. Thanks.

    Not too many pings won't root from leave cuttings. I would try them just for the heck of it. If they take, you'll have extra plants.

    Pinguicula 'Pirouette' is the name for a cultivar, not the name of a hybrid, generally CP hybrids are not given names, but often destinct clones (unique individual plants - species or hybrids) can be propagated and registered as cultivars. You can find out more about Pinguicula 'Pirouette' at:
    http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi and you can see photographs here:
    http://www.humboldt.edu/~rrz7001/Pinguicula.html
    and there is a discussion of cultivation techniques here:
    http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/...ings/pings.htm

    The cultivar description in the CP Database will usually let you know what size the cultivar can attain. In my collection this cultivar usually grows to about 6-8" in diameter. Again, though it originated by hybridization, it is misleading to simply call it a hybrid, the name Pinguicula 'Pirouette' refers to a cultivar (cultivated variety), which would be any plant that exactly matches the published cultivar description and photographic standard, regardless of origins. Conceivably a plant matching this cultivar could be produced using entirely different parents.

    Using an "X" as a prefix in the name to indicate the plant is of hybrid origins is outdated terminology and is no longer correct.

    CP hybrids are denoted by hybrid formula, e.g. (Pinguicula agnata x Pinguicula gypsicola), [(Pinguicula esseriana x Pinguicula moranensis) x Pinguicula agnata], and it is perfectly acceptable to use registered cultivar names if they are involved in creating hybrids, e.g. Pinguicula 'Pirouette' x Pinguicula ehlersiae.
