    I am glad I am not the only one who has had a problem. Here's hoping they snap out of this shock or whatever is going on.

    When I have transplanted or just potted them up after receiving new stock plants, I always put them in ziploc bags and give them a little less light than my established plants. My Pinguicula lusitanica did this too when I transplanted a few to a new container. Even the ziploc did not keep them from looking like yours do now. In a few weeks I was able to take them out of the ziploc once they had produced new leaves and had begun to flower.

    Minus the ziplock bags, that is the exact same concept of which Tamlin describes - covered, with less light, for a short while. That's about 60 years of experience and confirmation! I wonder what Bugweed says...

    Looks like they dried out. If these plants were terrarium grown, full sun would probably cook them. Humidity might also be a factor. Pings in general tend to be more sensitive to humidity and light changes than Drosera and other genera.

    My lusitanica got moved from the windowsill to the bog garden. It is still alive but with dark puple veins and looks weird. I wonder if it will survive (It has almost a month). I have decided I do not like P. lusitanica that much (This is the 4th that I will have killed)

    Is it too late to bag them now or would that be just another disruption to their little lives? I did give them a little less light by placing them where I knew they wouldn't get much more than 3 hours a day. It had been my intent to increase the amount of sun they were to receive in about 10 days.

    Oops, I was posting and didn't realize there were posts to read past the comments made by PinguiculaMan. Sorry.

    I don't think they could have dried out as I am pretty careful about that and I check on my plants more than frequently. I am also relatively sure they aren't sun burned for lack of a better term as they weren't in full sun. They certainly did looked fried out or dried out to me though. To the best of my knowledge, these plants were not terrarium grown. I believe they were greenhouse grown though. I am sure the man who sold them to me would have shared that information with me as he is professional and would want the plants to live.

    Hi Tre- here's the deal... if I get these to live, I will split half of what I have with you. Thanks for letting me know you have done what I have just done 4x. Not that it makes me feel any better as I freak out if I lose any but maybe I will try them again, and then maybe again after that before totally calling it quits.

    Well Joseph, you were right. I took a magnifying glass because I thought I spotted the tiniest little bit of green coming out of the center of the smallest lusitanica. My husband said he thought it was a little bit of green too. Happy St Patrick's Day to me! I checked again tonight and by gosh by golly... there is the tiniest bit of green emerging from that plant and I think I see a little bit of green coming out of another little lusitanica. That's two of them that may rebound!
