    Unhappy

    My P. agnata, P. cyclosecta and P. ehlersiae are all doing well in a diatomeat mix.

    Somehow, the P. laueana is not growing very much and seems a little weak.

    What do you guys/gals use as the medium for this plant? And are the growing conditions similar to your other mexican pings?

    Thanks.

    Cindy,

    I have been growing Pinguicula laueana for several years now. I have yet to get it to grow as vigorously as other Pinguicula or even to bloom. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I have tried various media and cultivation regimen. My next attempt will be with giving them natural light and seasonal change of same.

    I grow Pinguicula laueana like all the other Mexican. Here is a page on this species.

    Just keep in mind that I live in France so the conditions must change.

    Pinguicula laueana

    You can also see here some Pinguicula laueana in habitat to give you idea of the conditions you can copy

    I grow mine pretty successfully in pure lfs. It has not flowered yet, but seems happy, and I expect it to this year. My temps are between 60 and 80 degrees and 50+% humidity.

    Thanks, everyone. How do you water the ping? Overhead?

    Thanks, everyone. It seems that it won't mind a wetter medium. Capslock's pure lfs and gardenofeden's tray method...

    Pings in Singapore's weather often die due to root rot so I was extra careful with the watering but now maybe it's time to water the laueana more often than the rest. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
