    I think it is nearly impossible to identify Pings without a flower. In addition, there are so many hybrids floating around that even with a flower, identification is dangerous. Do you know where you got them?

    #3 looks like a pic of P. agnata x gypsicola I saw once, although, as stated above, identifying pings is almost impossible without flowers.

    I know. I understand. I've had these plants for a long time, now, and have lost track of who sent me them.

    They have never flowered for you?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    This is the flower associated with the one labeled 'John Rizzi', but it's not the right name for the plant:

    If you could remember what plants you had (and those that you never had), that might help.
    You might check the photo finder and find similarities. For example, the flower above might be
    Pinguicula x [agnata x (moranensis x ehlersiae)]
    Pinguicula 'Pirouette'
    Pinguicula x [agnata x zecheri]
    or any number of other possibilities where I have not yet found flower photos.

    Check your old picture posts and see if you posted them when they were still labeled.

    I have a plant labeled 'John Rizzi' I got from you several years ago. The plant looks like the photos on the Photo Finder. The flower is close though the color is more pale than the photos on the Finder. But it is difficult to compare colors without calibration.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
