    since it's only easy to ID Pings with a pic of a flower,[/QUOTE].

    Yes, it should be the only way to identify a species but the more I visit wild locations, the more I am lost :

    Have a look :

    Eric,

    Patrice has educated me against just trusting the flowers for ID as well. Probably floral ID is possible for the North American species though, there are few instances of albino forms, except in P. ionatha, although I am sure they are "out there"

    Incidently, hibernacula of the same parent plant of P. grandiflora produced different floral coloration for me, possibly due to the different media I grew them in!

    Well, the flower is just now starting to open a little. It still looks like it's going to be white. and it looks like the kind of flower that will have the hand-like part ''holding'' it. Also, I notice today that there is at least two offshoots with it in the pot, so I'll change ''one unknown Pinguicula'' to ''potfull of unknown Pinguicula'' in my signature [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    (had to delete growlist in sig because I was informed that it took up too much space)

    It flowered today! It's white with a bright yellow center and brown stripes on the inside roof of the flower, and the part that ''holds'' the flower looks like a hand. It's definitely a pumila. The flower looks EXACTLY like the one in Vic Brown's post ''P. pumila - i'm in love!''

    So now it's been identified! WOOWOO!!! ***dances around like an idiot***

    P.S. How do you pronouce ''pumila'' anyway

    Don't get too excited. P. pumila is not a commonly grown and distributed plant, especially by commercial nurseries. It is far more probable that your plant is P. primuliflora, esp. considering the yellow center. Also, P. pumila does not offset whereas P. primuliflora is noted for this, reproducing from the leaf tips.

    I'm gonna also guess it's primuliflora - for me the flower is white at first, turns pinkish, finally purple. Also has the yellow center.
