    Wow, that's really nice! It has a really long spur, too. I guess this is the result of the cooler temps.

    That's what I figure. Since they always form winter rosettes, no matter the conditions. Once these heterophyllous form species grow beyond small plantlets, they seem to have an internal clock that produces these winter rosettes, no matter the temperature, water level, or photoperiod. But obviously some need other environmental triggers, like temperature drop, in order to initiate flowering.

    Well, I just tore the bottom of the flower off to cross it with Pinguicula hemiepiphytica. I think they will compliment each other. Hope I am right.

    Really cool ping! When I saw this thread I was like "Oooo, isn't that the one with the red flower?!" Typically I'm not a fan of red but it looks REALLY nice on pings!

    Thanks Ben, Capslock, JB OrchidGuy, and ChronoKiento. Yes, this is the species that has flowers in shades of red. This one appears to be on the orange side, but still is nice, and very unusual for a Pinguicula.
