    I'm located near Hamburg, Germany.

    And some temperate Pinguicula are doing quite well in my climate, i.e. P. macroceras ssp. nortensis from Oregon.

    In fact, P. macroceras ssp. nortensis from Oregon is the best of all growing temperate Pinguicula for me.
    My temperate Pings are in mini-bogs in outdoor cultivation all year round.

    Assuming you don't mean warm temperate then yea, I fancy them. I'm in Wisconsin, just North of the Illinois boarder, and they do poorly for me. I can usually get them through the Summer and following Winter and then they mysteriously go belly up. I'll figure it out one of these days though.

    Very good info.
    I have to say that the Nortensis is actually found in Del Norte County, California.
    Specifically, the Smith River drainage, within the Siskiyou mountain region. ( part of is which within the Oregon border)
    I have hiked my whole life in this region, the last couple of years I have been looking at the CP's native to my area., I have yet to find Nortensis on my (Oregon) side of the border.
    Even though the North Fork of the Smith ventures into Oregon near Chrome Creek, and bordering the Kalmiopsis Wilderness area in Southern Oregon.
    Gasquet, Ca. is the place to see the Nortensis in situ.
    It seems the Nortensis is easier to get in Europe than the U.S.?

    I grow both P. macroceras ssp nortensis and P. grandiflora outside year round in an in-ground bog just outside Portland, Oregon, and both do very well for me.

    I have P. grandiflora and P. vulgaris, currently growing them inside under lights. Most people seem to think this is bad idea, but the grandiflora that I've had for years have done amazingly, and the vulgaris are growing quick from seeds I got. Since I'm growing in artificial conditions my location doesn't mean much, but I'm located in northern Colorado. I doubt either one would fare well outside in summer here.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
