    the rate of growth does not indicate flowering though....
    for me my pings will only flower during certain times of the year in certain conditions...

    25% vermiculite 25% perlite 25% silica sand 25% peat moss


    Edit:
    here my big ping pic after 4-5 days after the first pic:


    if you get hard time to see the diff then use the dead spider as the indicator. =P

    also the leaves which have grown under my terrarium are more redish then the leaves
    that the ping grown before i got her.

    Thanks For Reply.
    I'm from Israel and i guess i found some stores which sell Freezed Dried BloodWorms but please anyone
    can write exactly how to use it on my ping/drosera ? i got the fact that i first turn it into powder
    but then i just put it in small amount per feed? its goes good as powder without any juice in it or i need
    to spay some purified water on the leafs with the powder ?
    sorry for the heavy questioning but i want to be sure i doing exactly the right thing, i don't want to
    hurt the plants.

    You should read the links I posted for you.

    A very light dusting of the insect powder is best. You can speed up the absorption process with a little light spritz of water, before or after the dusting on the leaves. This can be repeated every few days, but it helps if you rinse most of the old insect powder off, before adding fresh.

    suite

    I think too peat in the substrate and not enough light , this plant is etioled.

    all the straw for aquarium fish may be OK,but with parsimony especially in terra ( attention to the rot )

    see if your pinguicula have mucilage , in this case often they have not , also no need to feed
