    I think you are right, jimscott.
    In the wild, temperate and mexican pinguicula are used to getting moved around by wind, rain .etc.
    So they are not sensitive to root disturbance.
    They dont develop much root because they grow on cliffs or rocks with little soil, the plants that grow on cliffs or rocks with little soil are called alpines. So they dont have much room for root development. Some Pinguicula, like P.grandiflora(temperate species) is getting used to moving around so much, that if you dont repot during dormacy, they dont grow as well!
    However, D scorpiodes has plenty of room to grow and develop lots of roots, it has much more room for root development then Pinguicula do. Its not used to moving about, so it is sensitive when you disturb its roots.
    Does anybody else agree with me and jimscott?

    My P.laueana is recovering, its lifting up its flower stalks,
    they used to be right on the soil before.

    Try do some cuttings. IF some leaves have fallen off, then hey, what's there to lose? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    No, No, NO!!!!! Dont feed, it will make things much worse.
    The plant isnt well, and it will have to cope with the fertilizer asswell.
    Lots of people kill their plants because they look unwell, because they give them fertilizer, then their plants die.

    No, dont use superthrive because superthrive is fertilizer asswell.
    I would just put it on the tray system and put it in good light, then I would leave it alone untill it recovers, then fertilize. My P. laueana came in a bad state, it has now recovever, and I didnt use any fertilizer to help it recover.
