I know everyone does things differenetly but there must be some general guidlines I'm just not following.
Heres my situation. I've killed two P. morenensis plants within a few months of getting them! I now have a P. laueana (sp) and I sure don't want this to go down the same road!!! I am currently growing this palnt on a windowsill since the rot started as described below. I also have a few seedling Ping which are doing OK for now but if my past performance is any indicator of my future succes, I'm doomed. I have only been succesful with P x sethos (Correct form for cultivar names: Pinguicula 'Sethos') which is growing in pure peat.
So here are my conditions. I grow all of my plants in my basement under a 1000 watt grow light. The humidity is quite high for my Neps. I don't have a circ fan but the humidifier has a fan and moves the air around a little. The temps are lowland nep range in summer and highland nep range in winter.
The Pings do the following. They look good for a week, tray method and sand/peat/vermiculate mix. Then the leaves start to turn brown and rot till there isnt anything left.
My guess is that its too humid and not enough circulation for these plants. The rot must be some sort of fungal attack.
Help, I'm very frustrated.
