    First off, how hardy are these buggers? Do they like alotta sun? Also, are they easy to grow?
    Oh boy.

    P.esseriana is an easy to grow mexican pinguicula that likes shaded conditions(50%) for a few hours a day. They work very well for terrariums. As for hardiness, I am not quite sure as I have only grown these in a terrarium. They can withstand light frost for a short period of time during their dormancy, but this is not recommeded in culture. They can stand temperatures in the low 90's for a short period of time, but prefer temperatures in the 70's to low 80's during the daytime.
