    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.

    Wanted to do a bit of an update on my collection of Pinguicula. I've learned a lot from growing them (and made plenty of mistakes already!!!). I think I have found a stable situation for them all now and am actually planning on enclosing the entire space and running a fogger through it which I think they will enjoy. Anyhow, have a look at some of the plants I've got going:

    Here's a red vines tub that I put some turface on the bottom of and live sphagnum between the little pots. The pings seem to love it in here and springtail populations seem to have boom and bust cycles. Sometimes I can blow in there and hundreds of springtails will react.


    Pinguicula esseriana


    P. 'Gina' (Thanks to CactusDan for starting this from leaf pulling)


    P. emarginata. This plant came pretty battered and is just making a recovery


    P. esseriana grown from pullings of the earlier plant that fell off during shipping. They're nearly the size of the original plant I received already.


    P. parvifolia. This one came in really bad shape. It's grown several small leaves and seems to grow them a bit quicker than they die off so I have hope.


    P. reticulata. I am aware that P. reticulata and P. kondoi are supposed to be the same. The place I ordered from had pings for both names listed so I was curious and got both. This one is not looking that attractive yet but has a few growth points. It came with another plant that did not survive.


    Here's the ones I got as P. kondoi


    P. gypsicola


    P. heterophylla


    P. medusina. The main plant did not survive but one of its leaves sprouted from its tip so I'm hoping this little plantlet will grow well.


    P. ehlersiae


    P. gigantea in a 4" pot


    P. cyclosecta


    P. laueana got confused and wanted to go dormant in the summer. It has started to grow carnivorous leaves again at the wrong time of year but it's all my fault. Hopefully it will survive ok anyway.


    P. jaumavensis that also somewhat seemed to think it was time to go dormant and had stalled out for a while. It's back to growing for now.


    P. 'Aphrodite'. One of the rare times it hasn't been in flower since I got it in the spring.


    Unknown Pinguicula from a friendly Portlander who came to the last TF meetup


    And well this ping doesn't really fit in here but I'll put it anyway. It's P. primuliflora growing on a rock on live sphagnum.

    Awesome reticulatas/kondois. I got some in my order from BCP, I wonder if they are different clones. Once mine finally grow some roots and settle in, we can compare them.

    Nice plants! The P. primuliflora on the rock is really interesting.
    Just as a note on P. emarginata - in my experience they only make those sort of shorter "crinkly" leaves like in your picture when they're too dry. They should generally have more oval-ish or spatula shaped leaves.
    This species normally grows on shaded walls in a wet sort of moss or humus layer, and is used to getting more water than the other Mexican species.
