    Unhappy

    I recently bought this plant from Cooks Carnivores, and it seems to have produced a plantlet. I wasn't aware that this species produces plantlets... Your thoughts?

    I have a similar story. Awhile ago someone posted that they got P. caerulea from Lowes. So I picked up one. In a short while it flowered. Just another P. primuliflora. Can't tell by the picture because so many of them look alike - but plantlets usually indicate a primuliflora. I also posted about whether Pings produced plantlets. Someone replied that it could be ionatha - but it was just a primuliflora. Let is know when it flowers.

    Could also be a volunteer seedling. I've had my own Pinguicula caerulea do just that, more than once.

    I got a P. ionantha at lowes once. I thought it was a P. primuliflora until it bloomed.

    The way the larger leaves curl and twist above the little plantlet, put me most in mind that it is, perhaps, Pinguicula primuliflora.

    Angry

    I hope its not a primuliflora. It doesn't look like my primuliflora that I have... its leaves (the one in the picture) are very twisted compared to my other pings. Looks healthy though...
