    Hey Ping lovers!

    Check out this new addition to 'world of pinguicula'. Great article about Forbes and Noah and their find of P. medusina. The plants are incredible!

    I've read about that on the internet earlier this year and it does infact sound like a very fun plant to grow indeed!

    Very interesting... Are these guys in cultivation yet? I love the elongate Pings and I'll definitely be looking forward to this one. I hope it's compact enough to be managable indoors; it looks like it can get pretty big in the wild.

    I know some of our Europe friends have these, but i have not seen them in the US!
    What a shame as they are fascinating plants.

    I have searched high and low for plants or seeds but no luck.

    I've had this species for a few years now. I've managed to propagate a few from leaf-pullings, and some from the plantlets that form on the tips of the leaves.

    I have yet to discover conditions that inspire the growth exhibited by the wild plants. So far, they simply continue well, but rarely grow larger in diameter than a nickle coin.

    Wow, are you saying the entire plant is the diameter of a nickle? Or are you referring to the body of the plant and not the leaves? I can imagine those would be rather cute in miniature. You wouldn't happen to have any pictures, would you?

    Joseph, had you had these flower? Since they are rare on this side of the pond, perhaps sometime soon you could get some seed?

    Yes, no larger diameter than a nickle, often no larger than a dime. I keep trying different cultural things, different media, lighting, temperatures. So far, nothing has helped. No, I haven't managed to get them to bloom, so far.
