    Thanks for all the responses! About the snail...I just left it there. The snail seemed to be able to move with impunity and when i checked back shortly after the snail was gone and no plants harmed.

    About hybrids I really like to appreciate the truly naturally ocurring plants more. It is just personal preference. Some of the hybrids are pretty but I'd be more excited to get some of the rare species I only see for sale from Europe or Asia that are interesting in their own right.

    @gill_za i appreciate the advice. I have actually been looking for turface locally but all the shops seem to be kind of wholesale oriented baseball diamond shops that I haven't been brave enough to call up yet. I've heard rumors of turface in other retail shops but no real leads yet. I'm real hesitant to order something heavy like fired clay online. In the meanwhile though I figure I will learn what the plants like before I try a medium I have no experience with.

    Here's some leaf pullings. First two are P. jaumavensis. I pulled these leaves first thing when I received the plant on April 15th.



    Here's P. laueana. Not sure when I took these but they were started before the jaumavensis and have been a little less aggressive to offset. It's in a salsa cup with some red sphagnum.

    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.

    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    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.
