    Here is a link to a small photo gallery I just put together with quick shots of 14 trays. I have more than 100 trays like these and scores of 3 inch community pots in ziploc bags. I hope this can give the potential Pinguicula grower an idea what these plants can look like. Back when I first began adding them to my collection I didn't really know what they might look like or what size they grew.

    Here is a sample shot:

    I designed and built some cheap wooden shelving, 4 shelves high. Each shelf is wide enough and long enough for 6 trays, and 4-foot long fluorescent lighting fits lengthwise.

    I bought cheap 4-foot long fluorescent fixtures with electronic ballasts, cannibalizing every other fixture to rewired the ballasts into the fixtures I kept to use (overdriving the cheap cool-white fluorescent lamps that I use). I found out how to do this on the internet. It burns out the lamps sooner, but puts out much more light before they do. I mount two fixtures above each plant shelf.

    I run everything on digital electronic timers and change my photoperiod between 14-16 hours per day, down to 10 hours per day - with no actual intention to emulate nature (I change it randomly). Doing this seems to inspire more flowers. One shelf I keep on 24/7/365 (constantly).
