    Dang those are so blooming! It rivals the 15+ open flowers on my U.livida.


    William why give up on pings? Too many filures or just not enough room?

    Forbes,

    Excellent work. Superb growing of a somewhat sensitive species.

    If you wouldn't mind joining me in an "experiment". This growing season, plant one of your offsets (Pinguicula rotundiflora) in a pot topped with a 1/4 - 1/2 inch layer of 1:1 vermiculite:coral, about 1/8 inch size pieces and smaller. Let us know how this does.

    I'd be happy and the plants seem to be happy themselves.

    As beautiful as that is... I almost want to say that recently that plant may have been infested perhaps by mites. This is when I notice my pings become mounds with multiple growth points like that. Thanks for sharing that wonderful flower shot though!

    I just received a small plant of this species today, and was struck with the similarity of the leaves with Genlisa. There is quite a family resembelence there!

    Joseph,

    I certainly will try that if I can find the coral. But why that combination and not for the entire pot? Is the objective only to boost the calcium level?

    Andrew,

    Thanks for the tip. My plants currently lack mites and I haven't ever had a problem with the critters on my Pinguicula, but will keep an eye out. I don't have all that much experience with the genus, but it seems that healthy, mature blooming plants form clumps. I'll have to have my eyes checked.

    Very interesting, William. I hadn't connected those dots before. Please let me know if there is some way to grow it like a Genlisa...

    Basically, what I meant by "topped", was that I usually place a layer of something to prevent the media from washing out the drain holes of the pot, usually a small amount of redwood bark or LFS.
