    It is high probable that the plant is Pinguicula primuliflora, as it is mass-produced in the U.S. and sold at the home improvement stores.

    yeah i do think P. primuliflora is what i have, judging from the pics i have seen of it, both the leaf shape and the flower match.

    Here is a photo of my Lowes Pinguicula primuliflora. It has grown much in size since purchase and I need to transplant the 12 or so plantlets it has produced.

    yeah, that looks just like mine, but yours isnt dieing, so yours looks better than mine does.LOL

    tried shading it, doesnt seem to be getting any better, but it doesnt seem to be getting any worse either.

    I would try taking it off the tray system. Keep it on the dry side for a while (don't let it dry out). Try watering every couple of days. This has worked for me. Also try using a little more sand in your mix.

    If this one dies (and we all hope it doesn't) then try one from here. I know it's hard to pass up the instant gratification of your local CP killer (sometimes I can't pass it up either) and you don't really have to, but get yourself a quality plant and try it out. The plant you have may have been doomed from the start.
