    Yet another ping ID please

    Here is a ping that I have had on my windowsill at work for the last 5 or 6 years:

    http://cpforums.org/gallery/v/Rocketcaver/

    The first few are old pics, I have recently repotted these (I have 3) and put them on my grow rack at home. The last couple are new pics taken last night.
    Also I thought I had some better flower pics, but these are all I can find.
    I'll add new flower pics when they bloom again.
    I don't know exactly where these came from, I have slept a few times since then.
    I have asked a few folks and gotten 3 or 4 different possible IDs.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks

    Added two current photos.

    Rocketcaver, I am almost positive that the beautiful ping you have is Pinguicula 'Titan.'

    The leaves are right for it and the flower (though it is hard to tell because of the flash) confirms roughly the right color for it.

    Nice job!

    Thanks folks.
    A couple of other folks have posted Titan photos recently and I think you are right.

    Definitely. Here's one of mine: http://img145.imageshack.us/i/1001602ev5.jpg/

    They come out very dark purple, then turn to a lighter purple over time. My leaves never colored up like yours though. It's quite beautiful.

    Thanks!
    I keep it and it's mates about 4" to 6" from the lights to get that nice bronzing effect.
    The leaves don't get as big, but I like the coloring.
    I have to lower the plants as the flower stalks grow so the flowers don't hit the lights though.
    Yep, your flower looks pretty much like mine. Pretty little things aren't they.
