    Question about Pinguicula esseriana.

    I've got a question about P. esseriana. In all the pictures I've seen of it, there's always multiple ones in a pot. How does it spread so fast? Does it produce plantlets like P. primuiflora or something?

    Like elgecko said,
    Leaf pullings. This species produces such a large quantity of leaves, and handling them during planting/transplanting almost always results in several severed leaves which can be used to propagate more plants. In good conditions these propagules quickly grow to maturity alongside their parent plants.


    Though this entire tray has plants that are divisions/clones of one original plant, there can be variation due to minor environmental differences. Several plants have also began growing in a manner called crestate - where the apical meristem expands horizontally.

    I'm probably going to buy one from FlyTrapShop in a few months.
