    Question about gracilis x moctezumae

    I recently acquired a Pinguicula gracilis x moctezumae that appeared to be somewhat in its dry state. Well, since I received it, it has shrunk to a bit smaller than a penny. it is still green in the center, but looks to have gone into a deeper dormancy.

    For those of you that grow this cross, is the dormancy bud typically this tight and small? Should I still treat it like the rest of my pings that are just now emerging from their dry phase? It's a beautiful plant and I would hate to lose it.

    I would just keep it lit and hydrated.

    Thanks Jim -

    That is what I have been doing and so far it seems to be holding on. The other pings though such as P. rectifolia and P. 'Sethos' are getting bigger. Too bad this guy has a mind of its own!

    Joseph Clemens just posted advice about repotting, taking numerous leaf cuttings, and leaving the light on for 24 hours.

    In the spring, mine perked right up and exploded into growth after the substrate was moistened. You can't go wrong with moist soil and about a 13hr photoperiod for spring.

    Rather than posting a new topic I thought I would add to this. To the ping experts... my P. Aprhodite has been getting strange marks on the leaves... almost appears to be burn marks. Does anyone know what this could be? It really shortens the life of the leaves and I fear it is weakening the plant. None of my other butterworts seem to have this problem.

    Could it be some sort of rot?
