    Yes, the pitchers all seem to go through drastic color changes as they mature. The 2nd, smaller one should be putting out a pitcher soon. I'm very curious to see what that one does color wise. I'm hoping that it settles more in the red spectrum like mom.

    As far as the P.gigantea is concerned, I'd have to agree with you. I got in a trade from another member on here. They don't normally get that red, do they ?
    The red is what I noticed first, but also the leaf shape is off, and gigantea doesnt get as pronounced "drool edges" as seen on your plant.

    This is a photo I took about a week ago for a giveaway on the Canadian forum. All plants are grown beside each other, about 10" away from a 6 bulb HOT5 fixture. P. gigantea is seen in the bottom left, and as you can see are pure green. My main plant is the exact same color and is actually in stronger light than these small plants.

    (using a link as not to confuse with your photos)

    I'll just hold onto it until it puts on some more size. Hopefully, I can get a flower out of it this year. Maybe get a positive ID on it then.

    I'm only somewhat following the ping conversation, but if it's a gigantea ID that's in doubt, check the undersides of the leaves for dew. P. gigantea is (to my knowledge) the only ping that has dew on BOTH sides of the leaves. If yours isn't gooey on the undersides, then it's not gigantea.

    I'd need a microscope. That thing is the size of a dime.

    Mass: P. longifolia ssp. longifolia and also the Pinguicula known as P. agnata CSUF have glands on the underside of the leaves.

    See "Origin and History" http://www.pinguicula.org/pages/plan...a_gigantea.htm


    No matter what it is, it's an interesting ping.
