    According to the sticky above, I'm guessin these are Pinguicula primuliflora.
    The first plant I got today, it was looking so healthy that I just couldn't pass it up anymore. There's even a crazy little plantlet growing on a leaf??



    This one I got at the start of winter, as a 'clearance sick plant.' It grew a bunch of small leaves which I'm curious if it's gone into is dormancy stage.
    Do you think both of these are P. Primuliflora's?

    Yes, they both appear to be Pinguicula primuliflora, which, by the way, does not have a different growth form during "dormancy". It just grows more slowly when subjected to conditions similar to those it experiences in its natural habitat. The plant in the second photo appears to be ailing. Usually once these plants of the S.E. USA look like the plant in the second photo, they are generally not long for this world. Though they do sometimes recover.

    The second one was injured due to my ignorance while unpacking it from its cube. It was pulled from the soil. I figured well we'll see what happens and just plucked it back in. It's been about a month and a half now and I can see it grew roots going back into the moss.

    So I thought that it just had it's growth stunted, however it's growth has seems to to have stopped, but there is this 'ball' that showed up in the middle. Thought it might be a flower getting ready to make it's move.

    Compared to the other one though, it's just night and day.

    I'm curious how to bring both of these into dormany now or even if they should this season.

    Oy, the pings...

    Leave them alone. They will do well without being forced into dormancy, which, as Joseph pointed out, isn't a true dormancy, but more semi-dormant. Slowed growth, but it won't stop in winter unless they freeze. Then they most likely would die. Plantlets from the leaf tips of P. primuliflora is a plus, but in my experience, this happens as a result of growing stress of some kind. When growing in prime conditions, I notice rare plantlet growth to NO plantlet production. However, if they dry down, in danger of some form of sickness, not satisfied with growing conditions, they can produce prolific plantlet growth.

    I have to disagree with Bugweed on one point. My primuliflora constantly produce plantlest and reproduce. They take over any pot I place them in. And...they are healthy. I know this because they flower accordingly and don't die. I grow them very wet...almost submereged. They grow like this in their natural habitat. Unlike Sarracenia...they are not susceptible to rot (at least not in my experiences).

    yeah, both of my mature P. primuliflora constantly produce plantlets at the tips of their leaves, and from what I uderstand with no ill effects

    I always felt like P. primuliflora was the D. adelae of the Pinguicula genus

    JustLikeAPill...I absolutely agree! I've always thought that. I wish a few other CP would do that.
