Very nice! Pinguicula cyclosecta is the only Pinguicula I've managed to kill...

Very nice job, growing and blooming.

How did you get those puppies to flower? I can do no better than this:
My whole Mexican ping collections spent its growing season on the grow rack, under lights, next to a south-facing set of glass windows. For the winter I moved them to window sills to draw the cold and still pick up the lower photoperiod cues of the window sill light and almost bone-dry APS. Some plants, consequently, displayed "winter leaves". About 6 types have graced me with flowers this past month. I was hoping for more.
After 3-4 years I've yet to get flowers. I put them outdoors in Jan in hopes the cold weather might stimulate them. All they've done so far is progress even further into the winter leaf mode. Temperatures have dipped into the high 30sF at night.
