    I do not grow this plant, but my Ping had similar issues. It looks like it's got something to do with soil or water levels, but as it turned out with mine, it was light. I would suggest putting it in full natrual light outside, or under some serious wattage indoors [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    My Pinguicula laueana is growing very well in peat/sand/perlite, but I am finding that my kondoi and jaumavensis do not care for the mix much. I am going to add a lot of LFS to those.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    You know, looking back at this thred, and the natural habbitat post cards, it occurs to me that this species may not be a fan of calcium in it's mix. Just look at the all the data, that's a fairly stronge pattern for anti-calcium media. Have you tried growing it without hard soils Pingman?

    Like Eric, I grow my P. laueana (6 distinct clones originating from wild-collected seed (A. Lau) and many crosses between them) in the same mix as the majority of my mexican species; very free-draining, hardly any peat and basic (my mix contains crushed tufa limestone, lime and vermiculite).

    I find this species as easy to grow and almost as vigourous as P. moranensis under my conditions; natural light and a cool dry winter. All clones, that I have mature plants for, flower freely in winter (code names follow those of Stan Lampard (UK) who grew these clones from seed);


    P. laueana 'Sierra Mixe Highlands' - Type




    P. laueana 'SP1'




    P. laueana 'CP2'




    P. laueana 'CP3'

    Fantastic photos Vic. Would you suggest the same mix for the kondoi?

    I find P. kondoi grows and propagates easily for me in the same mix. However, I've yet to get this species to flower for me, a pity because the flowers are amazing.

    Hi Friends,

    Very nice pictures I will add in the website Vic !

    I am very sorry to write that Fernando just wrote me that in fact we all grow P. reticulata (even those under the name P. kondoi) and that P. kondoi is not in culture. (more in the postcard 11 soon - )

    This species has never been collected since the description and can be different...and Fernando didn't find it (yet)

    I received mine labelled as P. reticulata and changed the name on the labels to P. kondoi !!! Time to change them back again! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The pictures are not new ones Eric, I think you have them on the site, I was just posting a range of clones together.
