    Your temperatures and humidity sound fine.

    Perhaps I am mistaken (I hope so). But the appearance of the Pinguicula plant in your photo, looks like it is growing in lower than optimal light levels. Many Pinguicula can grow and bloom in lower light levels than many other CP, but, especially when using artificial lighting they can thrive in even higher light levels.

    Maybe these links will help explain what I mean -- Measuring Light Levels. Wikipedia article about Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR), light that can be used by plants.

    from the info in the "measuring light levels" article i do have enough light =X
    even more. i have near 100W and by my Lumins measure i have more then 5k near 5.5k
    and yes i have lumins measuring tool so its measured by me(and not only written on the box when i got it)
    from my knowledge its enough to make the plant happy. ;D

    What is the distance between your lights and the plants and how long are your lights on, continuously?

    What is a sm? Also, you may want to give the plant 4 hours more light.

    suite

    longifolia subsp longifolia and longifolia subsp caussensis actually are in dormancy in hibernaculae

    these species are a mineral calcareous species , you can saw them in this substrate immediately
    always outdoor and wet , in shade or with a suny light in morning .

    wake up here in europe in march- april , adult flowering in april-may

    for the orchidioides you can saw them immediately indoor according to the blotting paper method .

    on your second picture your plant is in dormancy ,etioled , with a flower bud it seems to me.

    you live in what country ?

    jeff,
    You do realize that "dormancy" and "flower bud" do not go together, right?
