    Xvart, those are both cultivars of mexican Pings. P. 'Florian' is a hybrid of esseriana x jaumavensis, and P. 'Pirouette' is a hybrid of several Mexican species.[Edit: actually Pinguicula 'Florian' is a cultivar, derived from the hybrid, not strictly "a hybrid", as hybrids are not named, except in rare circumstance. Neither is Pinguicula 'Pirouette', "a hybrid", but rather a cultivar selected from the progeny of a hybrid cross.]
    The green "grass" is some kind of moss. Kind of irritating but i guess pretty against the pink!
    Peter.

    I like that moss! I've been trying to grow it but it never really seems to grow for me.

    These are actually "Peter's". He took the name, "pingman", which is probably why he has been confused with me. I used to be "PinguiculaMan", but changed to my actual name.

    Though, I too, believe my plants are beautiful.
