    Yes so I need leaves or a plant not seeds.
    Thank you though for the generous offer weser! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    PMan is this true with all of Pinguicula?
    Ive heard this before but have yet to read about it in any literature. I still need to buy some books, Ive been doing all my research online as im quite poor at the moment [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    Any recommendations though? I know Im already planing on picking up the Savage Garden, but i was thinking of something a little more specific as well.

    Peace [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Peace

    Yes, nearly all hybrids, and all Pinguicula hybrids as I understand it are heterozygous and not homozygous. Which means, if I am not mistaken; heterozygous: alleles are not paired up in genes the same; while homozygous: alleles are paired up in genes the same.

    Khai, sometime ago, Pinguiculaman sent me a small clump of wesser, and they are doing well. You can PM me; I have an extra about 1 half inch across that I could part with.

    PinguiculaMan,

    So in your experience, do you find it more vigorous than other Pinguicula's? What conditions yields the best results (i.e. lighting, temp, etc.)?

    I've been looking for Pinguicula's but haven't been able to decide on one specifically. This may be the one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    Yes, CCHANG in my collection of Pinguicula, Pinguicula 'Weser' is my most vigorous, most easily propagated and most flowering of all the Pinguicula I grow.

    Culture: I keep them very close to multiple fluorescent lights with nothing between the plants and lights except air. I keep the lights on between 16 and 20 hours per day. The temperature ranges from a high of approximately 85F to a low of 60F. The lower temperatures only occurr in the Winter time. I use the same media I would use for Sarracenia, 100% peat moss or long fiber sphagnum. I keep the media wet nearly 100% of the time. I spritz the foliage frequently with a complete fertilizer solution w/trace elements at a concentration of about 40-60ppm. I aspire to eliminate all non-sphagnum moss growth, by pre-sterilization or removal.

    When I transplant I frequently remove many of the older leaves off of the plants at the same time, Then I use them to produce even more of these prolific like rabbits, Pinguicula 'Weser' I mean.

    The paler/more green plants are growing with a polyethylene lid between them and the light source, reduces my watering chores (important for the lazy person I am).

    See images below:
    (Sorry that some of these are a little out of focus, taken too hastily.) All of these were produced from leaf cuttings at various times. All are divisions of one initial plant. There are yet many more not in these photos, as well as many that have been sold and traded as well. All from one small plant received about 5 or 6 years ago.

    Oh and yes Im familiar with the terms heterozygous and homozygous I just always get the two mixed up. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Thank you much for the over view!
    That is very helpful.
    Just out of curiosity what is the total wattage in light for each of your shelves, on average?

    Most shelves have 160 watts or 4 - 40 watt fluorescent tubes. 2 shelves have 240 watts or 6 - 40 watt fluorescent tubes. One top shelf has 320 watts or 8 - 40 watt fluorescent tubes.
