    Hmm. I guess I'll have to drive to the other side of town and take a picture if that little thing impresses so many people.

    Tim,

    Uh oh, either you are out boasting me or I am in deep trouble, hee hee. Still, my plant sticks its tongue out at you (sticky one too) and sends you a long and lingering raspberry. We invite you to pit your plant against the unspeakable mangnificance of the Largest Ping In the Woooorld.

    Hi Tamlin, I'm just rising to your challenge. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The photos are in taken, just got to finish the other 30 something pictures over Easter and I'll get it posted. 10.5 inches is the diameter of my 'caudata'.

    Cheers

    Ok Vic, Superping is ready for you. Be sure to get something to show the scale (not that I am doubting your word, but if you want to be the title holder of the Largest Ping in the Wooooorld you have to work for it&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    When you DO get that camera, please take lots of photos of your other plants. My tongue has been hanging out to see your collection, which I have no doubt is awesome!

    Good god...that is HUGE!!!! Absolutely awsome. And I can't wait to see the challengers.

    Now I feel like I am growing miniature pings... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Well, just one more (in a long list of thousands) to aspire to. I guess it is the carrot to you keep striving.

    Hi Tamlin

    As promised a photo of my P. moranensis var. caudata complete with ruler. This photo was taken an hour ago, unfortunately some of last years outer leaves have browned so it doesn't quite measure up to the 10.5 inches it was a couple of weeks ago. I have photo's of it at the quoted size still in my wife's camera if you need to see them. It's still fairly big though, as you can see, what does Superping have to say?

    Now that I am the proud owner of my new toy, expect to see a few more pictures from my collection in the near future as soon as I get the hang of it. For the moment I'll leave you with these.

    This is a bit of a sticky situation. It is evident that your contender was a Champ in his prime, the power of his punches no doubt legendary. That is one bloody huge Ping (pardon my English)! I see that your champ is somewhat retired now, but will this obviously powerful heavyweight return to full fighting prime? Time alone will tell: after training and maintaining a good diet your ping may well knock my young upstart of a plant clear back to Mexico. I think this one might have to go to the judges, but in any case it is clear that this champs trainer knows what he is about. Still, the current champ is not yet at the peak of his prime and is working out each day. Presently I feel it could go either way, and a rematch will likely be in order.

    Thanks as well for the beautiful photos of the flowers. I am hoping my P. laueana flowers this season. WOW!! BTW is that hybrid of yours that you sent to me red flowered as well? I would love to see a photo of that (the plants are thriving&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Sorry for speaking about another record : the largest Pinguicula reach 60 cm diameter !

    This is in wild, in Spain, this is Pinguicula vallisneriifolia .

    The plants grow overhanging (leaf is 30 cm lenght) so all the leaves goes down but if if grow one, the size will be 60 cm !

    Mine are only 15 cm (the lenght of one leaf). A long, very long road to go !
