    I hear lots of "they rot often", and etc. when referring to Pinguicula primuliflora.

    What I actually read from that is; "I don't give them as much light as they need, so they rot for me." If you give them as much light (PAR) as is optimal, you can keep them floating in water (such is their natural habitat) and they will grow and bloom nearly continuously, as mine have for many years now.

    When giving them lots of strong light, don't forget not to ever let them dry out, not to let them get too hot (don't cook them), and to feed them a little from time to time.

    I'm growing a rescued ping from Home Depot (was called a starfish plant but it looks like it is primuliflora, it had a purple flower). Anyways I'm growing mine outside in a tray, on a lower shelf that doesn't recieve full direct sun. It is doing well, catching its own bugs, sprouting new leaves, and it even has a pinkish hue on the edges. I'm using a mix of 50/50 pete/perlite and a top layer of LFS. I would never suggest planting any CP in a 100% mix of pete moss. There's just no drainage at all, and your pot tends to flood.
