    Pinguicula filifolia

    This one isn't seen too much: Pinguicula filifolia

    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?

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    ieat100s: it does somewhat look like P. medusina. They are very different plants though.

    marvin1997: that's where its name comes from .

    Anyone know of any good ways to propagate them? I have tried leaf pullings, those have failed. It's not uncommon for pullings to fail for me the first time around though, especially on new and stressed plants. I plan to try again. Getting seed seems to be a challenge. I'm going to try anyway though.

    I found one of these for sale online. Is it a difficult plant to grow? How do you grow it?

    So far it hasn't been difficult. It has to be warm and humid at all times. The soil should also never dry out. I'm growing mine in a peat/perlite/vermiculite/sand mix. No particular amounts of anything, whatever looked good at the time. I would recommend a mostly peat based mix for this species. The APS or perlite/vermiculite mixes that I normally recommend would dry out too quickly. This isn't a Mexi Ping and must be kept moist. Mine stands in a bit of water at all times (about 1/4").

    To keep mine humid, I actually have them bagged. I cut a couple slits in the top of a small sandwich bag and put it over the top. The plan was to slowly acclimate it to my conditions to see how well it would do in lower humidity. It is trying to flower now, so I'll wait. I'd like to get seeds if it's possible.

    Does it go through a dormancy period? I've thought about getting P. Gypsicola, but that stays in a succulent stage most of the year. And I've thought about getting P. Medusina, but that "hibernates" as a bulb under the ground.

    It looks like P. Filifolia has the appearance of the two species I just named, but if it grows year round, that would be fantastic.
