    Pinguicula vulgaris

    Early last spring ( 2015) I was ordering a couple of hard to find Darlingtonia ( If they are actually as described) and I decided to add Pinguicula vulgaris seed to the order as I hadn't grown the species for many years. Nothing at all happened in the pot last year except for the customary sprouting of non-carnivorous bog greenery. The same result this spring and I needed the room the pot was taking up so it was going to be discarded on the garden. A quick check before the ol' heave ho and there were these mini-pings waving at me.
    This goes to prove once again that once a pot is designated devoid of meaningful life a moratorium should be declared for a period of about 4 years.

    Haha, happens to me often with seemingly "dead" pots. Always look under the non-cp greenery before dumping "empty" pots.

    Very nice horde of P. vulgaris indeed

    This is a good illustration of what can happen when you're looking the other way. I sometimes wonder how many pots of soil I have discarded that would've yielded treasures, with lots of time.

    Glad you caught sight of them. Would have been a shame to have unknowingly killed them off.

    You never know what you might find in "dead" pots

    Wish I had a place to put pots of old soil; it does make you wonder what might sprout if you let it sit forever....
    Hoping I get some luck with the vulgaris seeds I have, thus far the D. linearis I got with them has yielded one surviving seedling so gives me hope that they're viable...

    Assuming we got our seeds from the same source, I got about a dozen vulgaris seedlings, so there is defiantly hope.
