    I've heard the temperate and warm-temperate pings can be hard because they rot out very easily if temperature changes in the spring are too rapid.

    I second laueana though. The flowers are also a really pretty shade of bright red. Cyclosecta is also a good choice; the leaves are a sort of gray blue/purple.

    P. planifolia is super easy, at least where I live. I grow them outside and they have been subjected to being frozen solid to 14 F and temps in excess of 107, but then again I am right in the middle of this species range so it might be more difficult outside of that area.

    Another interesting thing about this species is that it likes to grow underwater sometimes.

    I love Pinguicula! Specifically Mexican pings. They are easy to grow, IMO.

    Pinguicula cyclosecta, P. jaumavensis, and one P. florian

    P. jaumavensis

    They all look like little carnivorous roses, and I have got to get a hold of cyclosecta.

    Pinguicula Planifolia turns deep red. It is not a Mexican Pinguicula, it comes from the Southeastern part of the United States.

    i have been looking for pings for the last several days. Thank you posting this as I was really lost. Like yourself I really want the pink and red ones, green ones meh . The suggestions are great but it seems like this isn't the season to buy them? I want at least four and it sucks I can't buy them from one store.
