Your pings are quite nice! I'm jealous of your expansive variety of plants.
I can always start you off with some leaf sprouts.
Nice pings as always
Very nice collection. I killed my very first ping, and swore I would never grow one again. However, I have grown fairly fond of them. They are somewhat addicting, and you can grow quite a few in a small space.
How difficult is that Pinguicula gypsicola? I'm thinking about getting one.

I've always wanted a ping, but I'm afraid that I'd kill it, with the really weird weather we get here in R.I. (dry as a bone one day, humid like all hell the next). Your pings have a really nice color to them, especially the one right above the bottom right ping.

The one conatiner has been outside, under a chair for about a month. The smaller container only a week. Even under a chair, so they don't burn, they get enough dappled / indirect sunlight to turn them pink. I hesitate to have them fully exposed because a good rain will likely scatter and rot them, as happened once before.
i suck at growing Mexican Pings...i've decided. Give me any Ping from the US or hahah Lowes and I can turn it into a weed.
But the mexican pings I always get either....brown from the edges until the entire plant dies, or drop leaves until only a tiny center nubbin is left. If i water them, they rot. If I don't, they go dormant...and i wait for almost a year for them to wake up. Go fig.
Even my P. 'Titan' is more like (P. 'Tiny') compared to when how it looked when it first arrived.
