    Hi Fury- I do have the peat moss mix with some sand/perlite underneath the LFS for my warm-temperate pings. My P. planifolia seems to be still in shock, but is showing some growth but I think I might tweak around with more muddy soil when I get home later today. I do have a spare P. lutea (about 1.5") as a spare. If you want to try growing P. lutea, I can send it over once weather gets warmer.
    Only warm-temperate ping that isn't doing well is P. planifolia, and doing some reading now to see how I will go about it. Are all your plants under grow light?

    I also feed my warm-temperate pings with dried blood worms (powered, and sprinkled over the leaves)- I got this information on one of Joseph's website on his Mexican Pinguicula page, and his plant seem huge!
    So far, plants that were fed seem to have flowered, and their growth has been great.
    I do see some bugs caught on, but not so many considering how many other plants (sundews, etc) are competing for the same source indoors.

    @Joseph - yeah, I'll go ahead and feed them shortly. They certainly isn't much prey for these guys inside a small Brooklyn apartment, unless without my knowledge they started making rats small enough to become entrapped on the mucilage But, I just checked this morning and it looks like the P. moctezumae did actually manage to catch a stray fruit fly. Nice.

    Great flowers, Jim! I love the color. I noticed that the color of my P. primuliflora flowers is a lot more pale than others I've seen. Is it nature or nurture that's causing that?

    Also, Candice - You mentioned you had a spare P. lutea that you could spare once the weather warms up. Do keep me in mind! If you have plants to spare, then I have space to spare . Take a look through my grow list and PM me if you'd like to trade for anything, and thanks!

    P. primuliflora flowers are light iris colored. Sometimes they start out white and then darken a bit.
