    I would definitely capitalize on your ability to grow Mexican Pinguicula!

    Yea as soon as I saw "Mexico" I was like.... Mexi-PINGS!
    I would get a sethos since its a pretty easy one and it is one of the coolest looking ones. Not too rare or hard to find also.

    Well... Bought Droseras and a Cephallotus in the end... Haven't found Ping's... In fact... Nobody seems to know them when I ask... People usually knows onle the flytrap and Nephentes...
    Anyhow... I guess I'll wait for Spring... Probably they'll be easier to find then...

    Well theese are the ones I have... The pics are about a week old...

    D. carbarup
    I don't really see... Anything... LOL... Overexposed photo...
    But in the center of the plants there's some sort of cotton-ish bud... Is it the growing stem or an inflorescence source?
    Note... There's a flower bud on them by now...

    D. filiformis
    The longest leaf already dying... Many new shoots are unrolling in the base...
    Question: are the drying leaves supposed to be cut off or left there?
    NOTE: Old pic... I took the smaller one into a new pot, shoots were getting tangled...

    D. nitidula
    Some sprouts around it! Looking healthier...
    ...And crowded, there are many new tiny plants growing around them... Should I try to move them to a bigger pot?

    D. burmanii
    Has it's first victim! (by now they're more than 8)
    Looks beautiful!
    Lots of gooey stuff
    4 new leaves growing in the center... I noticed a couple of days agor that there was a very small plant under the leaves of the pland... Re-potted it, but apparently it had been away from the sun for too long... Actually it only had a tiny green growing leaf when I changed it

    Cephalotus follicularis
    More than half it's pitchers have dried... Actually, since I was away the plant was in the water tray for about 6 days, until the water evaporated...
    I corrected humidity already... It's now growing a new leaf and trap so I guess it's ok...

    D. binata
    Slowly becoming "binated"...

    D. "carbarup" is likely in dormancy right now and the fuzz is normal. It's a winter grower but in the Northern hemisphere that means the summer.

    You can trim the old leaves off the D. filiformis if you would like.

    The nitidula is fine...pygmies are pretty used to being crowded like that...

    Wish I could help with the Ceph but that's not my area of expertise.

    You're going to need to get that Cephalotus out of that peat and put it into a better mix. I use 1 part peat, 1 part sand, 1 part perlite, 1 part horticultural charcoal and 1 part milled sphagnum. Also, you shouldn't keep it so wet.
