    Ping leaves getting smaller??

    As mentioned, my P. Sethos leaves becoming smaller....Is this normal? Condition: Full morning sun with shaded at noon. Media equal part of peat moss, perlite, vermeculite and pine bark graanule. On another matter, how to make the leaves redder? Any help is appreciated

    Is there new growth coming from the center? That would be my main concern... the only Pinguicula that ever reduced its size to where it flat out disappered was P. gigantea, but I've never had that problem with P. 'Sethos.'

    By new growth you mean new growing point or growing new leaves ? If growing point then no but if growing new leaves then yes and each new one is getting smaller. Not sure what is the problem Maybe too much light? Media too compact?

    you should try feeding it. my personal experience reveals pings to be more as obligate carnivores, and need food in order to grow well, otherwise, they just shrink and die. your leaves look awfully clean.
