    Thumbs down

    I have P. ionantha and have had terrible luck trying to germinate it from seed. I've given many people on this forum seeds earlier this year, and as far as I know there is 0% germination rate from the few people I've asked recently.

    My P. lusitanica has had close to 100% germination rate in the same pot in a matter of a few weeks... both are warm-temperate. Go figure.

    I think Pinguiculaman has had good luck on this.

    Yes, I believe at least one of my Pinguicula ionantha was also obtained from a "Home Depot" hardware store.

    Since I began using freeze-dried mosquito larvae to feed my CP, the USA Pinguicula have continued to bloom and whenever I fertilize the flowers, they set seed. I recently donated some to the ICPS seedbank.

    They germinate easily when they are fresh, on the surface of moist peat. They are very tiny and do best when kept constantly moist and in strong light. Not enough light and they are very prone to damping-off. I have discovered that if I place a minute quantity of freeze-dried mosquito larvae onto the surface of their tiny leaves, they grow much more quickly.
