    Update, the same plant several months later. Flower is gone but the plant now has two crowns and has really beefed up. Still in the same pot, but I put it into its own rocks glass so I could alternatively water it until the crown is sitting in water and let it dry down to 1 cm before I refill it to the top. I think I shall transplant more of my Pinguicula gypsicola into sand/coral media.

    Hey Pingman,

    Is the plantshop and Botanical gardens still around? I remember back in the early 90's making a drive to that place from San Diego to buy some plants. I was pretty dissapointed when I got there and found out they wanted something like 30 bucks for a S. flava that was maybe 4 years old at best. I do remember they had a very impressive pot of D. capensis.

    I do believe they are no longer in business. The one in Reseda, CA. I did, however, locate a business called, "The Plant Shop" located in Reseda, CA. I do not know if it is related to the former business. I visited them twice in the 80's. They had plants you couldn't fine anywhere else, but are easily available now, and they were asking quite a lot.

    I can recommend growing this species on a lump of tufa rock with no soil, and just sit the rock in water all growing season. Just pop small plants into cracks and crannies and let it establish itself.

    Thanks Rob, that sounds like an interesting idea. I think I will give it a go as soon as the greenhouse is ready.

    Here is the same plant again in a follow-up photo:



    In the image you can see its recent dusting with freeze-dried bloodworm powder. I administer this weekly.
