    Sorry to hear that.
    Mine grew great during the summer, but in the winter mine rotted also. I think I kept it to wet.

    Oh dear. Despite what people say, P. primuliflora is NOT that easy to grow.
    It likes to be wet, but it is prone to root rot. This is where the majority of people go wrong.

    I've had mine for umm.... at least 8 months. It sent up about 6 or 7 flowers and it's still going great. Lots of babies too. ^_^'''

    Maybe it's just lasting a long time.

    I've kept some Pinguicula primuliflora now for more than 5 years. Produced seed when they flower. Grown the seed to flowering plants. They just keep growing and flowering, also producing plants from the sprouts at the tips of their leaves. Every so often one will die and rot, but the seedlings and plantlets more than make up for the loss.

    In the couple of years I've been tending to the needs of plants I have learned to propagate as soon as possible, and as often as convenient. This practice makes my collection more stable than it used to be when I carefully tended to a solitary plant of each type that I wished to keep. Doing that nearly always doomed me to failure. Populations are much more stable than individuals. Individuals come and go, but populations increase stability quite a bit.

    is this ping a self pollinating plant? Mine has died back a bit after I removed some of the plantlets...I'm just going to let it go now, see how many plantlets it takes to get the entire pot full. My one has something like four flowers up right now...crazy.

    i thought that P. primuliflora set seed and die
    thats what happened to all myn, they seed seed (wich i could get because i was always to late and they already fell -_-)
    and they just turn brown and die...
    when it starts to happen, i try to push the leaves down so most of them touch the substrate and they usually make plantlets [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
