    Hi folks,
    Perhaps someone can shed some light on why my P. Primuliflora just started to wilt? It was doing fine, flowered, now it just started to wilt! It looks terrible! what gives? There was no change in environment, I'm stumped.

    tray method. They like it waterlogged, right? I think Pingman says he keeps his on the tray all year long. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Yes, that is also how they grow in the wild. But sometimes they will rot from the roots without any warning.

    Hey Shloaty,

    I had a seedling die from those fungus gnat worm things munching on its roots. Do a quick check to see if that's the problem [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Could be the fungus gnat larva...The top of the substrate has a thin, white layer of something. I'll submerge completely for a few hours and see what happens. Thanks guys!

    If that is what i think it is, that is a little mold/fungus on a peaty mix. I would re-pot to sphagnum.

    Regards,

    it's probably fungus nats... they make a white moldy looking film on the top of cp soil, dunking it completely for 2 days will do the job. Pinguicula primuliflora also sometimes likes the water level at the surface of the soil, maybe it's wilting from too little water?
