    Here is a recent photograph of my "mother" Pinguicula cyclosecta plant a few weeks after a bout of flowering which split the meristem.

    Pot: White plastic, 3 inch (7.5 cm) square x 4 (10 cm)inch tall

    Media: 100% granular peat moss with a vertical layer of pumice through the center of the pot.

    Water: Year-round, 1/2 - 1 inch (1.2 - 2.5 cm) in plastic tray.

    Light: Year-round, 15 hours/day of "cool white" fluorescent lamps.



    What do yours look like and how do you grow them?

    Hi,

    All i can offer at the moment is a flower picture.


    higher resolution

    I keep mine exactly like my other mexican Pinguicula. This means in tray and warm during the summer and nearly completely dry and colder during winter.

    Updated image of the same pot of Pinguicula cyclosecta, the two oldest flowers are starting to fade a bit.

    Hi Joseph, very nice plant and thanks for the updated picture. I have the YuccaDo 1714 version from you which is still in the same pot as which you gave it to me. (Vermiculite and Coral) It is still growing very well... In fact, it has since split into two plants of equal size... (If they were alone, each would use up the 2 inch pot) It's only flowered once wich gave it the division.
    Good growing!

    Joseph,

    Nice plant as always. I can't find pumice here in Michigan, have you tried any other media for the core of your potting mix? I can find lava rocks, the decorative red kind but I am unsure of the PH. I am not as brave as you so I am not as willing to experiment. Too few preciuos pings as well.

    Thanks
    Glenn
