    Here is what Pinguicula growing like weeds looks like.

    Story:
    1) I had several clones (species, hybrids, and cultivars) of Pinguicula that I had already created several small plantlets of by leaf pullings. I used some of these small plants to pull off many smaller leaves for propagation. I dropped the small leaves into ziploc baggies with a large pinch of slightly moist LFS.
    2) I prepared groups of 15 -- 2 inch plastic pots by filling them 2/3 of the way with moist LFS, next I topped them with a previously prepared media mixture of 1/3 pulverized oak leaves, 1/3 peat moss, and 1/3 medium grade silica sand. I moistened the mix into a mud and cooked it in the microwave on high for 8 minutes. I let it cool down then squeezed excess water out of it.
    3) After topping the pots with this mixture I dusted the surface with Trichoderma harzianum innoculum and then layed the leaves with their tiny beginning sprouts on the surface of each pot. Put the pots into individual 15 pot plastic trays, put them under the lights, kept them wet and waited.

    Picture: some of those represented here, include; Pinguicula ‘Pirouette’, Pinguicula (A.L. #14), Pinguicula ehlersiae, Pinguicula rectifolia, Pinguicula laueana, Pinguicula (Yucca Do 1713), Pinguicula (Unidentified: BBA1), Pinguicula agnata, Pinguicula moranensis x Pinguicula ehlersiae, Pinguicula ehlersiae x Pinguicula oblongiloba, Pinguicula reticulata, Pinguicula ‘Mola’, Pinguicula ‘Tina’, and Pinguicula moranensis (Morelia).

    These have been in their community pots for about 5 weeks, some are beginning to form flower buds already.

    I love your innovative inclinations! Have you tried crossing a butterwort with a VFT yet? A fellow named Seymour Krelborn created something interesting.

    Though he had incredible results I would be afraid of getting similar results.
