    Hello Guys!!! I want to share with you the first Pinguicula flowers i have ever had. I have been cultivating Pings for the last 3 years and finally i have had my reward.

    A couple of weeks ago one of my Pinguicula primuliflora, i guess it is the mother plant, started to produce a flower talk, and then a second one.

    Now, i have this. The first 2 pics are of the 1st flower. The 3rd one is of the 2nd flower. The previous has already faded into a seedpod.







    I know these plants are very common among northern CP'ers, but for me, here in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico) It has been a real achievement, since i have always been told that i was not going to be able to cultivate P. primuliflora here. But, look at my beauties... I am really proud.

    Do any of you guys cultivate this Pinguicula in the tropics? Let me know about your experience. Or if you are in a northern region, are these plants easy to cultivate?

    Cheers

    I live in the tropics and wouldn't dare try what you did! The flower looks great and I 'm sure you're really proud. Maybe I might try one of those temperate pings myself!

    Hello! I have had a lot of patience with these Pinguicula in order to see their flowers, so iam really proud [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    But related with its cultivation here, in a tropical region it has been the easiest! I just received 3 plants, like a year ago, place them over the Sphagnum Moss in a pot and now i have countless primuliflora everywhere [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you guys, for all your comments!
