    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Jeff, this plant was purchased as P. esseriana 'Giant' through CZ Plants back in 2008.

    Unfortunately, it looks like it is no longer in stock there, but perhaps you could contact them with any questions you might have regarding it origins and species status.

    CZ Plants used to have a vast array of Pinguicula species and hybrids, and the bulk of my mexi-ping collection was built through purchases through them and Best Carnivorous Plants, but it seems that they have cut back considerably from what they used to carry.

    Unstuckintime, i've seen considerable variation in shape , color and rosette size in P. esseriana specimens in my collection, from tiny green pine cone shaped rosettes, to small clumping, looser arranged rosettes in comparison to the 'Giant' type.

    I can't recall at the moment if i have any pics of those in my Photobucket pages, but if i have time later, i'll have a quick look and post them if i find them there.

    Well that doesn't surprise me.

    I don't take photos of every plant in my collection and only occasionally do updates unless something catches my eye or i think it may be of interest to others.

    And having a dial-up connection tends to limit the number of pics i post at one time or if i even have the luxury of that time to post pics.

    Same plants, but less than a month later, these two have responded well to watering and a couple of tropical springtail feedings, by showing visibly more growth.

    Thanks, i can see how these rosettes resemble an Echeveria...maybe E. elegans?

    A couple of pics from today...



    And from the side, these rosettes kinda look like compressed pine cones.

    They look great dvg, and much larger than the P. esseriana I have.
