Leaf pullings from temperate plants.
Just wondering if anyone has ever tried leaf pullings from non-mexican pings? If so what was the success rate? Early spring or late summer?
Mine produce many plantlets every winter that do just fine when seperated, but I just wanted to know if I had any more options.
As I understand it, you cant do leaf pullings from temperates.. only mexi..
Never Knows Best
I have a primuliflora (which is a Temperate-subtropical species) that just formed two plantlets on a leaf that is lying flat on the soil. The leaf is still attached to the plant though The plantlets are located in the middle of the leaf.
I haven't tried the pullings but if you keep it wet enough i think it might work..

my vulgaris forms new plantlets where ever a leaf touches the soil. its cool watching it gradually circle around the pot that way

I've never seen anything sprouting from P. vulgaris leaves (or any Pinguicula leaves of cold-temperate Pinguicula like P. grandiflora or P. macroceras or other).
nevermind, it's a primuliflora...
still, it is a non-mexican butterwort....
no possibility to have leaf pulling on vulgaris ( but on the hibernaculae leaves may be ,a friend has succeeded in having, but it may be a chance)
