    Like Joseph I too keep my pings wet all year round and they really seem to love it. Pinguicula cyclosecta seems just as eager as any other ping to divide itself while flowering. I originally got mine from Jim Scott (thanks!) and it has since divided 3 times and has been flowering since the summer.

    Thanks Jim! Trust me, it was with much trial and error and several plants that expired. About a year ago I found the perfect conditions for my plants and they have just been going nuts. A few relatives of your plants are in there

    To get back on topic. Here's some shots of my P. cyclosecta across time. No flowers as of yet.

    Not a Number,
    Have you tried dropping the night temperatures?

    I've obtained the best blooming response after I mounted an evaporative cooler in the window of my plant room. I kept the cooler pads wet, year-'round, this helped temperatures during Winter nights, in the plant room to drop into the mid 40'sF (approx 7C). Soon every plant mature enough to bloom, started growing flowers.

    Before I consciously manipulated Winter temperatures to induce blooming, my Pinguicula cyclosecta only bloomed occasionally.

    I see you did a little feeding with wingless fruit flies.
