    Angry

    I recieved my Pinguicula laueana today.
    However, it fell out of its pot!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    There apears to be little or no roots.
    Is this normal?
    I put it back in the soil(at least the small amount of roots)
    And will my plant recover?
    Regards,

    Mexican pings have very little roots in general. No worries.

    It should recover fine. Might help if you can put a cover over it, but really I have yet to find a Mexican Ping that was in any way sensitive to root disturbance. I think this is how they spread in habitat. Lay any leaves on the soil that have come loose and they will form new plants.

    Is this species harder to grow than other Pinguicula?
    Or shall I grow it same as my P. esseriana/ehlersiae?(not sure what the plant is, could be either )

    Starman,
    I have no problems growing it with my own Pinguicula esseriana. Easy to propagate and grows quite well, though I have yet to entice flowers from any of them. I have several clones.

    I recommend you check out Eric's site for additional information on this and other Pinguicula species.

    There seems to be a strong correlation between root development and sensitivity to being disturbed. For instance, the ping doesn't have much of a root development and isn't traumatized when disturbed. In contrast, D. scorpiodes has considerable root development and is highly sensitive to being disturbed. Is this a rule of thumb?
