    Here is a recent photograph of one of my Pinguicula gigantea (A.L. #3). Original plant obtained from Ed Read.

    Not only have I produced copious quantities of vegetative propagations of this plant, but I have successfully self-pollinated it and am growing out quite a few seedlings which are quickly approaching adult size.

    Question: Several seedlings appear to be lacking trapping glands on the underside of their leaves (i.e. segregating for this trait)? What are your thoughts on this?

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

    Media: 5 parts pumice to 1 part granulated peat moss.

    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?

    Hello,

    Sorry I can't answer you questions, but I hope you can answer this for me: I have one of these pings, what does A.L. 3 stand for anyway?

    Thanx, L.A. Traphole

    A.L. #3 stands for A. Lau. a man named Ed.Read collected them from Lau's garden. there were several "forms", so he labeled them with numbers for reference. Lau has a wall in with mexican pings growing all over it, including P. gigantea.

    Mr. Read has a website floating around somewhere....

    Where the heck can you get pumice in the Midwest(w/o ordering via mail and paying twice the shipping that the pumice costs)?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
