    I have succeeded with Pinguicula esseriana and Pinguicula moranensis by taken a leaf and placing in a pot topped off with dried LFS moss moistened and placing it on a windowsill.

    True. I'm trying to imagine how things occur in nature. Do cp leaves get severed by animals and fall in the water or on the swampy soil? It seems to me that when leaves get separated, they are landing on mist media, and obviously exposed to the air. I'm guessing that a moist media, exposed to the air, with live LFS, with normal diurnal lighting best mimics nature.

    I don't what the chances are of severed leaves falling into wet or moist media in nature. Keep in mind that Mexican Pinguicula are not bog plants, but rather are found in nature growing as lithophytes or semi-epiphytes (sometimes as straight epiphytes) on the side of cliffs, mossy tree trunks and other unlikely locations. Just look Fernando Rivadavia's "postcards" for more clarification. I would like to think I have learned a lot about Mexican Ping culture by reading these [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Okay, uncovered and sitting atop of moist, live, LFS. Easy to do!
