    Better would have been to crush the snail. Bush snails can reproduce rapidly and can be major pests.

    Nice cyclo. If does well for you let me know. I have moranensis aplenty.

    An update on my Pinguicula and leaf pullings.

    Here's P. laueana. The first picture is now:


    And this is a picture at the beginning of April when I first bought the plant...what a difference!


    P. jaumavensis


    P. cyclosecta. Not looking great for that leaf pulling but won't give up


    P. 'Aphrodite'


    Aphrodite flower


    Aphrodite leaf pulling offsetting on sphagnum growing on rock


    P. laueana leaf pulling old leaf died off, new growth still green


    P. laueana in 75%+ humidity terrarium on chopped red sphagnum


    And the little jaumavensis leaf pullings I'll post pics of next time. Just transplanted them but they seem to be doing ok and establishing their first roots.

    Cool! I saw that laueana there and almost bought it as well. Also, I had problems with cyclosecta pullings, but never any other pinguicula. I've noticed that their leaf margins are very brittle and often break during removal. IME damaged leaves often rot before striking, or rot away shortly after producing a plantlet.

    Bonjour

    bulblet ( plantlet) feeds on succulent leaf, so this driers and rot , after, is normal , but it must also do so for other species of Mexican.

    Nice Plants! I have an 'Aphrodite' that has been blooming it's head off the past 4 months. They are also good at multiplying.
