    I agree with Ispahan. It sounds like a recipe for rotten CP soup. Let us know how it goes.

    I'm open to suggestions. How many leaves should I try or should I have a second set up?

    The only time I had any success with wet Pinguicula leaf pullings was when the LFS was living LFS. The assumption is that living Sphagnum inhibits undesirable microorganisms.

    I have never had any P. gigantea root for me. Or make new plants (I meant the leaves for this whole thing I can acually grow the plant).

    ...now i'm getting a little confused...
    so should ping leaf pulls, when placed on a bed of media, be left uncovered so as to keep the moisture level down? with the exception of the-handful-of-sphagnum-in-ziplock-baggie method?
    this thread has been most helpful.

    I always cover mine and they do well on dead LFS. I have not tried live LFS though. Not covering also works, sometimes.

    And there ya have it folks - covered & uncovered, dried LFS & live LFS,.... If I am understanding the big picture, you want some moisture - no too much and not too little. (Sounds like Monty Python and the shrubbery skit or the Holy hand grenade) We don't want things to dry out nor produce mold. As Joseph pointed out, and mentioned by Tamlin, live LFS has naturally therapeutic qualities.
