    The color is out of this world! WOW!

    On mine, there is a distinct "waist" on the leaves, almost like a notch. You can see it in Jim Scott's picture. His color is more like mine, too, green with purple edges.

    I'm no Pinguicula expert but it doesn't look like P. cyclosecta to me. The leaves on P. cyclosecta lay flat to the ground. The coloration in jimscott's photograph is typical from photos of other plants of the same species in cultivation.

    It depends on when you got the plant from Jimscott. I had sent him some replacement pullings from the P. cyclosecta in my collection. The ones he had previously did not survive when he moved to a different residence. I had obtained my plant from Peter (pingman).

    It doesnt look like it to me either, but I dunno much about pings

    The plant came from from a friend who got it from Jim
    It was labeled as a P. cyclosecta (with the question mark)

    FWIW, It is under intense lighting (its on my heli shelf)

    So the obvious question becomes, any educated guesses?

    LOL! There's too many variables in there. The one I pictures indeed came from Warren (earlier this year?) I can't tell for sure, but the perimeter has that same look about it, which reminds me of 1713 & 1717 types. Maybe try a leaf cutting and give it less intense light, s it ends up being greenish purple?
