    My rehabilitation progress

    I will continue to sort through my plant trays and water/fertilize/trim/repot/divide/photograph those surviving plants. Since I have more than ninety trays currently in use, it is probably going to take me a month or more just to sort through them. I will photograph each tray before I work on it, so there is a record of how the plants fared. Then I will compile a report in a web page, then link it here, so we can discuss it.

    Here is a photo from greener days to increase the appeal:

    All my Pinguicula are in shoebox sized plastic trays and on shelves under cheap cool-white fluorescent lights, and in a small bedroom which I have converted into a plant-room.

    I had to neglect them for awhile so I could take proper care of my wife while she was ill.

    The plants were in my plant-room where everything was automatic except watering, so, despite being dry, they had a well-lit and rather moderate environment, most of the time.

    A lot of those plants look surprisingly great. Do you plant to put up any of those plants for trade after they heal like those Pinguicula debbertiana?

    Don't be fooled by the photo I started this thread with, you may notice I captioned it with, "Here is a photo from greener days to increase the appeal."

    Yes, some of the plants shown in the current photos, may well have come from those in this photo. And, yes, some will quite possibly be available for trade.
