    The ABG was growing a bunch of moranensis on volcanis rock in their warm orchid house over the summer. I have not seen how they are doing recently but I would assume that they are still growing strong. I think the key is the very high humidity to compinsate for the lack of media to hold water

    Interesting...I used to growing all my P.ehlersai in the terrarium under lightd. The plants were green/pink and their leaves pushed the roots out of the soil. These plants grew like epiphytes.

    When I moved the P.ehlersai plants outdoors into a large plastic box with stronger lighting and lower humidity. The plants grew into flat rosettes with leaves and roots pressed close/into the soil.

    Those look like Dr. Studnickas plants, am I right Arie? I found a local tufa deposit, and hiked back out of the woods some 2 miles or so las summer with about 40 lbs of tufa rock and marl sand. I have gome P. vulgaris, P. balcanica, P. grandiflora and P. macrocerus gemmae to try on the rock this spring. I plan on rigging a drip system, and will keep all posted of the results (if any). This is my first venture into temperate european Pinguicula, and I am aready nervous abo ut it. If anyone has some good advice, I am all ears! I really am curious about maximum highs and light levels. I know these plants are all cool growing alpines, but am uncertain of just how much heat they can take, and still survive.
