    I was just wondering if they are slow growers or if its me! While my lutea IS growing, its verrrrrrry slow. Its still a tiny little thing. Maybe it needs a different soil mix than its in. If I remember correctly, its in a peat/sand/perlite mix. I think I read somewhere this one is difficult to grow. Anyone else have lutea and any experience to share?

    Thanks!

    I tried once to grow lutea but it died two days after I got it in the mail, so I had it replaced with a Moranesis, haven't tried going back to it yet. I figured it was really sensitive to die in just 2 days in the mail.

    I grow <i>P. caerulea</i>, which is a very similar species, and it too is growing rather slowly.

    I have found the whole group of North American Pinguicula to be much slower growers than the Mexican species. Lutea is a real beauty when it flowers, the flower is large and sulfer yellow, a nice change from all those pink and violet forms! Mine did best in live moss as I recall. This species cohabits with Dionaea in North Carolina, so similar cultivation would apply.
