    Really Red!!!

    Does anybody know any really red pinguicula species or cultivars, something common that isn't too hard for me to obtain.
    I don't really care much for pings they all seem really green to me I want something with beautiful leaves I could care less about the flowers, by beautiful I mean "red" any pings with great color like akui ryu flytraps?

    i think p. planifolia can get red, i've never grown one (yet)but i've heard of others that get their leaves on the red side but dont know how deep these guys get. I dont have this particular one but will be getting one soon :-) any other ping growers out there with P.planifolila ? theres a few other deep red ones ive seen but i cant recall the names at this time.... im not much of a ping grower but i still think they are pretty cool plants :-)

    not to hijack, but could you send me the same thing you sent to Muscipula? I really love dark colored pings too :0.

    Thanks a lot

    one thing to keep in mind is that they tend to turn more pink/red under florescent light than the sometimes do under sunlight........i had some growing on my back step last summer in full sun that were green, but when they were moved inside under lights for the fall they turned pink..........

    Some of the hybrids get a nice color under sufficient light.

    Fryster...you really have some beautiful plants!

    And to the OP...pings are very under-rated. Get a few...and they really grow on you. No pun intended. Just look at Fryster's pot full of rich, slimey, succent pings! They are awesome plants!

    Most of them will turn red/pink/purple with good lighting. P. agnata stands out as one that turns red the easiest.
