    Pinguicula lusitanica is officially considered a perennial species that sometimes behaves as an annual species (depending on habitat), and Pinguicula pumila is also considered either annual or perennial (depending on habitat), yet some of us have had little difficulty growing both of these continuously for many years.

    suite

    it is a error for lusitanica , they are not perennial

    here in europe ( france-spain- portugal-irland) 'in situ' this specie is clairely annual , sometimes bi or tri annual according to their ecology ,sometime immerged in spring , I know her very very well for studying.

    see my web site here pinguicula

    jeff,
    I envy you having the Pinguicula lusitanica in your local area, several times I also lived near various CP species.

    I don't doubt that Pinguicula lusitanica grows as an annual in your local habitat. However, I know that it can grow as a biannual/triennial/perennial, I've done it myself, though it may not grow naturally as a perennial.

    I have a question about Pinguicula "Sethos". How big is the diameter on a full-grown plant? I need something with a diameter of less than 3 inches, preferably smaller.

    P. 'Sethos' It actually does get around 2.5-3 inches after a while so it's probably not going to be what you're looking for. It's extremely purty though

    Here is the size my P. 'Sethos' achieve in my usual conditions under strong artificial light.



    Under lower light the color fades and the leaves can grow much larger.

    Hmm. I guess it's too large for my pot o' Cephalotus. I guess I'll try and stick with a small Drosera or something. I'm thinking Spatulata, but it's a little boring. Are there any other small Drosera (not Pygmy sundews) that look really beautiful and unique? I want to try an Intermedia "Cuba" but I can't seem to find any.
