    The Obligatory "Hey, my Pinguicula are flowering!" Thread

    Hey everyone!

    Thought I'd share a pic of my P. primuliflora blooming with my P. moctezumae just starting to throw up a flower bud. I'm thrilled about the P. moctezumae - it very nearly died a month or two ago!!

    I'll post up as more flowers come in.



    Since one pic is never enough - this isn't related to Pings but it is related to flowers! My D. capensis "broad leaf" is starting to make a stalk:

    Oooo, love those flowers! Can we also share our pings with blooms? my P. ionantha/P. primuliflora/P. lutea are flowering, but not P. moctezumae- still a baby.. you are lucky!

    Please do share! Don't let me hog all the cyberspace. If you got pings and your pings got flowers, post up!!

    keke ok Its like midnight- and I am making New England Clam chowder! lol and just finished taking pictures of my pings. lol

    my P. primuliflora (one on left is new, one on right has been pollinated, trying to seed it)

    another P. primuliflora (this one has been promised to one of the member in a trade)


    P. ionantha(relatively small flower. Its dainty, and pretty It initially arrived all banged up, and more than 50% leaves had to be pulled, but it recovered nicely.


    P. lutea. It's got the biggest flower! and really really yellow.. I really like this one
    I also have a baby plant that I took it off the mother plant. This one also has been pollinated, and trying to seed it

    The Fury,
    Don't forget to keep feeding your Pinguicula moctezumae, if it runs out of nutrients it can quickly decline. A little insect powder, once or twice per week will keep them growing and blooming, strong.

    @Candice - wow, nice ping bowl. I love the P. lutea flower! I see you also have a bunch of leaf pullings strewn about ready to grow. You'll have a nice carpet of pings before long! What media is that, btw? Is the LFS just a top dressing or are you growing all your pings in pure LFS?

    @Joseph - Thanks for the reminder. I did feed it two weekends ago. I use 50/50 pulverized bloodworms and betta pellets "soupified" with some RO water. I apply it with an eye dropper. Does the same apply to the P. primuliflora or do they have different feeding needs? I'll feed them again tonight!

    Some seem to need it more than others, but most definitely appear to benefit from it, in my experience. However, if they're getting copious amounts of natural prey, then they're usually good to go.
