    ping starting to flower, what should i do?

    i was wondering since venus fllytraps lose energy for traps when flowering, does that also apply to butterworts?
    also it looks like it might be dividing

    My vote is to let it flower. After all, Mexican butterworts are the African Violets of the carnivorous plant world.

    Sit back and wait for it to open. The flowers are the main reason people grow these things!

    ...and not the easiest to hand-pollinate!

    Pollinating Pinguicula Flowers (with photos)

    Note:
    One of your partners may be infertile. This has developed on several Mexican species that have been in cultivation for too long. The origin of this lack of fertility is unknown and may stem from past mass in vitro cultivation with the use of synthetic hormones. In this case, male and female parts may not be un-functional at the same time so that your plant may still be receptive to the pollen of another species or yield viable pollen while being auto-infertile. One classic example is made by P. esseriana and P. ehlersiae which are non auto-fertile in European collections. However, the 2 can be crossed successfully when the cross is carried in one direction only!

    I've never seen this link before! And that answers a question I posted about how long they are viable. I wish the pictures were clearer, though. Just once... I would like to get seeds!
