    Here is a recent photo of the plant; Pinguicula 'Sethos' x Pinguicula gypsicola. I originally received this plant from Pyro. Thanks Pyro, it is a very nice plant. This image doesn't do it justice, because it has been away from its normal quota of "cool white" fluorescent light for almost a week now. The leaf colors are fading, though it is still growing and blooming strong. It has two flowers and they have each taken their own crown as flowering has bifurcated the apical meristem. This one is presently planted in 100% pure granulated peat moss.

    The gypsicola seems to be very recessive, huh?

    Fernando,

    The gypsicola parent is pretty obvious in the leaf on my plant, perhaps the different growth conditions that PingMan utilizes account for that. THe flower definitly holds close to 'Sethos' though

    Natural peat moss is a spongy yet solid substance of varying density. Most all peat sold for garden use (at least in the USA) is dried and ground into small granules, hence; granulated. At least one other country I know of generally has their peat product processed into 1/2 inch size chunks.

    Fernando,
    Yes, about the only noticeable Pinguicula gypsicola trait is that the leaves are somewhat narrower and more numerous than the Pinguicula 'Sethos' parent. I have yet to see a different leaf form, though, that might not happen until I subject some of them to more natural conditions.

    Under the same conditions my Pinguicula gypsicola seem to have good vegetative growth, however, they cycle between Summer and Winter leaf forms seemingly randomly and though they have 3-4 inch leaves and appear mature enough to flower, it has been several years and they have never flowered yet.

    Yes, the peat moss that is the appearance of sawdust is actually what is considered granulated.
