    I recently purchased a Ping from Wal-Mart that was just labelled as a Pinguicula "hybrid". I wanted to figure out what this was, and I googled it, and apparently, it is P. 'Titan'. They even give a picture of the plant on the card that came with the plant, and the flowers look very much like the pics on the web of P. 'Titan' flowers. (I was very surprised at the amount of info given on the card.) This plant seems to be doing ok, and seems to be growing in pure peat. It is really dewy, and is growing pretty fast. The older leaves kinda curled in a bit because of the brighter lighting, and the newer leaves seem to have a bright, shiny red point on them. Would a pic of the plant help in identifying it if it might not be P. 'Titan'?

    A picture would help a lot.

    If it is from Booman Floral, then it is Pinguicula 'Titan'.

    Ok, I though that that's what it would be, but I prolly will take a pic tommorow anyways.

    Yes, please do. We really like plant pics. Even if they aren't essential.

    ooh, someone with the exact same question I have! I love when that happens!

    I was surprised to see so many CPs at Walmart of all places. along with this ping I found a Sarracenia minor...which unfortunately was VERY dry, hopefully it will pull through.

    hope you don't mind if I post a few pics...sorry to hijack your thread, Ben...I just want to show off the carnage!









    the flower died...it was a Barney-purple.

    I really like this guy...not only is he thriving (the LEAST I could say for any of my previous Pinguicula), but he took care of my little fruit fly problem quite nicely!

    I have one of those too, but not from Walmart. It hasn't done squat in about 2 months. I wonder if it is dormant. It has leaves, but they don't ever seem to uncurl, but just sit in a bunch near the center of the plant...
