    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.

    Thanks

    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..

    Strange!
    Are you sure about the species? Do you have pictures? Also of the flowers?

    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).
