    Are things Pinguicula ready for leaf pullings?

    I want a pot full of Pinguicula, so I've decided to look into propagation with leaf pulling

    I understand that they need to be in those winter succulent form leafs.

    Are this Pinguicula ready?? Thanks!

    usually best to wait till the end of dormancy since they are still using the leaves to store reserve water during the dryness. and the plant in the last pic seems to still be in carnivore mode but I could be wrong, btw what species is that last plant.

    okay, I will wait. Maybe until end of Feb or March?

    Uhmmm, you know I thought about the same thing too. It's been kept dry as long as the other two plants. It's not going dormant is it? It's a Pinguicula laueana

    normally P. laueana must be dormant now.... perhaps she's going to be dormant...
    but in your last pictures, the leaf are really big and it's not a winter rosette... don't you see no very small leaves on the center ? it is strange because approximatively in 2 or 3 month this would be the end of dormant period...
    its depends the condition you give to your plant.... too much light , too long time with light, and too high temperatures make she don't going dormant.
    you can take leaf all year long, but i prefere to take leaf when they are carnivorous... its more easy..

    all the Pinguicula are next to each other. Receiving 12 hour lights, Room Temp Max - 60~65 Min 50~55.

    I stopped watering them together, soo I don't know what happened. Maybe I should email the vendor.

    i think you can take leaf for the P. laueana to try propagation.
    perhaps she just need an adaptation time to her new environmental conditions...
    do you use artificial light ? or just sun ?

    I'll take one and see what happens.

    Well, I've had her in this condition since October. I use artificial light.

    awwwwww, should I be concerned?

    12 hours of light tells a temperate plant that it's spring or fall. 10 hours is a more suitable photoperiod for winter.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
