My P. laueana never went dormant......although I've been keeping it wet year round, so perhaps that's why.....

Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

Nice shots Jim!
LOL! i hope those plants grace me with flowers!
yeah that's why it never went dormant, the dry period is what initiates the dormancy
I grew all of my Mexican Pinguicula species and hybrids in wet conditions, year-'round, for more than five consecutive years, without any adverse consequences. Rather several positive consequences. I still recommend my favorite growing method --> Growing Mexican Pinguicula.
For most species and hybrids, the most important environmental factor that stimulates blooming, is a wintertime drop in nighttime temperatures, into the 60's, 50's, or 40's Fahrenheit.
Pinguicula laueana is a very attractive plant even when it isn't in bloom. Here's one in Winter leaf form (not dormant). In the top center of the photo, an aerial root is visible poking out from between Winter leaves.
