    Ping Tray

    Thought I would take a few pictures of my ping Tray. BTW, my P. 'Titan' in the bottom right hand corner has been growing vertical leaves for the last month? Is it confused?

    And a couple of unidentified pings

    Cool. I really can't find to many Mexican Pinguicula where i live. Darn. Nobody trades anymore.

    Your NOIDs are a bit on the young side unless they've already flowered, which is unlikely.

    I'd say wait for flowers if you really want to know what those no-ID pings are.

    The P. x Titan isn't confused; that's how the dormant leaves look on mine. When it wakes up it'll be back to normal.

    I love the moctezumae.

    Thanks Jeff, that definitely helps. P. 'Titan' seems tempermental to me. It has a mind of its own and entered dormancy when everything else was just waking up.

    I'll post more pics of my moctezumae... it has 3 flower stalks being sent up right now and should put on quite a show.

    NICE set 'o pings Baylor.

    What is the one in the lowest row, third plant from the left? I see those a lot in people's collection but can never find one. Is it a pure species or a hybrid?

    Thanks everyone! After many questions and unfortunately some expired plants, I seem to be getting a cultivation technique down.

    Fryster, that is good ole Pinguicula agnata (pure species). Very robust grower. It has yet to send up a flower stalk, but I am hoping this will be the season.

    Thanks Jim! You know, I owe most of my collection to you!

    A few pictures for an update. My P. 'Titan' that was in its succulent phase in the first picture has exploded into growth and my P. 'Sethos' has almost doubled in size. I also have 5 P. 'Titan' plantlets from 1 mother plant leaf. Gotta love the prolific propogation of pings.
