    Sounds good, as long as you get the whole leaf, including the white base, BUT i have found an odd thing with pings: they will bud with an leaf cutting, even if cut in half. Anyways, i have had a problem with ehlersai producing alot of leaves, mine has even popped out of the soil because of that -Zach

    I believe you both received your plants from me.

    I do just that same thing when I receive a new Pinguicula plant. I remove almost all of the older leaves and just leave the newest 2 or 3. I then place the detached leaves into one of my little "propagation chambers" and wait. Within a very short time almost all of the leaves bud and form little plantlets which I remove and place into their own "propagation chamber" leaving the leaves to continue producing more plantlets. Soon I have many small plants in various stages of development. When the small plantlets are large enough to move to their own pots I do the same with them and remove nearly all of their leaves and place those leaves into the first propagation chamber with the original set, if they are still viable. . . The Pinguicula plants keep on movin' on down the line. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I am really bad at remembering what I trade with whom. I am working at fixing that situation. I really want to be able to remember those details, as well as what I get from whom in trade.
