    P. 'Titan' and others

    P. 'Titan'


    P. 'Titan' macro


    Flower


    Here are a couple pictures to show how I start my Ping pullings. This container is undrained. There is roughly about 1" of LFS in the bottom and about 2" of aquatic plant soil on top. I top water when it becomes dry.

    Thanks for looking,

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Wow, what a beautiful ping! I love the pink outline and purple flower. The ping pullings are neat, too.

    Wait, isn't it supposed to be dormant right now?

    Despite some publications to the contrary, there are some of us who hold out for a more restrictive definition of the term: "dormancy". Which means that Mexican/Tropical Pinguicula do not have a true dormancy. Many of the Mexican species are heterophyllous, which means that they basically form two types of leaves, that seem to depend on seasonal clues the plants receive in their natural habitat. These are often called either Winter-leaves or Summer-leaves, depending on the season they are produced in and their size and form. If these plants were truly dormant, they would not be growing, at all. Many of these species also bloom while they are in Winter-form leaves, even from their subterranean rosettes. Again, this is not the behavior of a dormant plant. Many of these species bloom in both seasons, from Winter-form and Summer-form rosettes. For me this is a very desirable quality.
