    Unhappy

    Hi all I just aquired the above species from California carnivores and it is still in its winter rosette. Im just curious how long one would advise to continue withholding water?
    Any other cultulre tips would be greatly welcome. This is not my first Pinguicula but it is my first mexican species.
    Thank you in advance.

    Khai,

    You will have to ask others for advice on witholding water from your Pinguicula, as I never do. I keep mine, including Pinguicula laueana soaking wet continuously. The one thing I never do is reduce the amount of light I give them. They are very close to multiple fluorescent lights and on a photo period of 15-20 hours per day.

    Well that sounds much more simplified to me so I may go ahead and keep it in that manner. The reason I was asking is that that is the way I recieved the plant, nearly bone dry and I wasnt sure how it would respond to being soaked immediately or whether you would even recommend growing it in this manner, you specificly.
    Thanx alot P-man.

    Don't forget to be sure to give it lots and lots of light. I am almost certain that mine are doing well being kept wet because I don't ever deprive them of plenty of light.

    Since I read that post of yours about continuous wetness a week or so ago, I've been doing this, and see a big positive difference. Do I not also remember you saying not to worry about forcing dormancy, as the plants do it on their own?

    I keep mine within 4 inches of the lights except when the flowers would grow into the lights, then I move them just far enough from the lights so the flowers do not reach the lights.

    I have found after several years of doing it this way that the plants form their "Winter" leaves no matter what conditions I am growing them in.

    While I will not areue with PingMan's technique I would recommend that you not just throw your plant into a tray andmake it sodden after being bone dry. I would instead recommend that you gradually increase the amount of moisture.

    As for the formation of 'winter' rosettes, like PingMan I find my plants just do this whenever they want. I have P. 'George Sargent' that has been "dormant" for the last 11 months growing in the same pot as a second 'George' that has enterd and exited dormancy 4 times in that same period.
