    Pinguicula grandiflora

    This happy little chappy is a self set plant in the live sphagnum of the Darlingtonia 'Othello' tray. Traditionally the first of this species to flower annually.



    For those not familiar with the species. the colour on the above is a little washed out as is the norm with photographs of blue hued flowers. A closer colour reference for this species is as below.

    Nice photos, Fred. I grow this species also and mine are kinda ratty-looking this year. So I will enjoy vicariously.

    Bonjour

    here in europe ,it is a common pinguicula

    fairly easy to cultivate and quite prolific

    see here some of mine temperate ping in flower actually with a little difference

    it is a grandiflora subsp grandiflora , the standard form

    we have also in FRANCE

    grandiflora subsp rosea ( pink)
    grandiflora subsp grandiflora f pallida ( blue pale form)
    grandiflora subsp grandiflora f chionopetra ( white form)

    Just ordered some p. Grandiflora seeds- any advice on cultivation? We are planning on directly germinating. We are window growing at the moment but d'amato says some species of p. don't grow well on sills, but didn't specify why. We can set up a lamp system if necessary

    Bonjour

    it is the type or the others?

    for grandiflora subsp grandiflora no problem , sow just on blond peat , shaded , always wet ,soggy even , always outdoor from winter to summer .

    Used to have one, but I made the mistake of growing it in full sun. It did surprisingly well, but slowly declined. I don't think it could keep its leaves wet.
