    P. Moranensis is an easy one grow and to find. I think Exotic Gardens is out of stock right now but I know where you can get them for cheap if you message me.

    This species produces smaller non-carnivorous succulent-like leaves during the winter but doesn't actually go dormant. It needs to be kept a little bit drier during the winter though. When spring returns you can use some of the winter leaves to make leaf cuttings. It has quite a bit of varieties and different shapes, sizes and colors.

    I like this one with red center. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]


    Nice pink ones! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]


    This is what rossettes look like during the winter.


    I beleive it flowers twice a year. The end of summer and the end of winter.




    Hope I Helped!

    One of the photos won't load. To view it just right-click on the red X, then click of properties, then copy the site and paste the address where you type in web addresses.

    For some reason, if you press back, it appears where it's supposed to be in the board and gets rid of the X. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The plant with the red centre looks to me like Oaxaca (hemi epiphytica). I'm no Ping expert though, it just looks like a plant I bought under this name.

    Thats because it's subspecies.
    Pinguicula moranensis ssp. oaxaca

    Like how S. rubra ssp alabamensis is considered by some to be a seperate species: S. alabamensis.

    Never heard of anyone calling oaxaca a species on it's own though. But theres a lot of things I haven't heard of [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img].

    P.Oaxaca is considered a moranensis from the state of Oaxaca. I have never heard of it being an official ssp though. Most growers and websites list it as P.moranensis typ. Oaxaca or P.moranensis 'Oaxaca' etc. There are many Moranensis named after many locations of Mexico i.e. Guerrero, El Chico, La Vuetla, Huautla, Santiago Nuyoo, Oaxacala, Chichicasternango and so on.

    In this country it is also known as Hemiepiphytica.
    After looking at the savage garden I think I can clarify things a little!

    >>Pinguicula Hemiepiphytica.
    From Oaxaca and described in 1991 this species has long been grown as a type of P. moranensis. It usually grows in moss upon cliffs or tree trunks. The flowers are similar to those of the typical P. moranensis, but with more oval pink petals and a thicker spur.<<
