    Unhappy

    I'm in a possition now to handle adding my very first ping to my CP collection. However, I don't know what type to get. I would prefer a plant without a dormancey, or one that has a winter, rather then summber dormancy if it does have one. I also really like the tightly rossetted ones that almost look like a flower sticking out of the ground. I also love the look of the whiteish and pinkesh ones. Is their a plant that would be ideal for me, or are my requirements too high? Oh and since it will be my first ping, I should prefer an easy keeper, but it's not required. Thanks all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    P.S. I'm still working on getting some vulgaris planted outside too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    P. esseriana might be an option. Nice looking plant that is easy to grow.

    Tim,

    That is part of Eric Partrat's "A World of Pinguicula". Just type this in a search engine and you should come across the main page.

    Darcie,

    P.ehlersiae, agnata, moranensis, esseriana and hybrids like 'Weser', 'Sethos', 'Gina','Tina', agnata x gypsicola etc. are good plants to start with. They do not have a long winter dormancy, and most can be kept wet year-round(the agnata x gypsicola should be kept moist/dry during the winter). These are all tropical/subtropical plants.

    Darcie,

    My Pinguicula 'Sethos' giveaway is still going on in the trading forum. The ease of growing this Pinguicula clone is one of the main reasons I am offering it free for the shipping charges to anyone interested.
