    Four inches from the lights is even better for actively growing plants, eight - twelve inches should be good for the leaves in the cups.

    Curious how they look like they are jostling each other to get more light.
    Awesome! I really need to get some schultz aquatic plant soil and change my ping media soon. Do you think I could grow them on decomposing granite?

    Hey Joseph, what is your experience in terms of the most prolific ping in regards to dividing? I have several that do it on a regular basis, but Pinguicula agnata is by far the most prolific... it seems to pump out a new plant every quarter. I don't mean to go off on a tangent, but when I saw your picture of the agnata, it came to my mind
