    Here it is, my very first Pinguicula gypsicola flower bud.



    This plant and my others are all growing under artificial light at 15 hrs/day.

    If you are not good at growing pings I wouldnt reccomend getting one, they rot VERY easily.
    A ping expert from CPUK got one, and it rotted on her despite over 11 years of growing pings.

    I really do think its a bad idea though.
    If you get it, its very likely it will die and you will feel bad.
    If you live up in the North, its probably a similar climate to here, and 95% of the time they dont last 6 months here.

    to each there own starman but i am growing Darlingtonia quite successfully by not following any book or advice from growers. i tried that and killed one. i said the heck with it threw it in some straight peat, sat it in a tray of WARM water and it has tripled in size. the rule of growing plants is NOT EVERYTHING WORKS FOR EVERYONE. i have killed easy plants such as Venus flytraps and such but yah know what. some plants that have proved difficult for other far more experianced growers are darn near weeds for me. if Joseph decided that i didnt have enough experiance fine with me but Starman you have never seen my setup nor my plants so i think it is funny that you are judging my abilities. one of the reasons i asked is because in the title of this post it says: Pinguicula gypsicola, Easy to grow but not easy to flower.

    Also dont forget Joseph lives in the desert, and I am amazed he can keep his wet all year round, try that here they rot away in winter. Joseph finds it easy, but up here in the North gypsicola is considered very hard.
    Lots of things that Joseph can do cant be done here.
    For example, Joseph grows his wet year round, I tried that and their roots rotted away.
