    Missing lots of labels, need help! (Drosera and Pinguicula)

    I am in charge of the CP's in the greenhouse at my university (this will be my second year actually) and many of the labels are either faded or missing. I'm more of a Sarracenia and Nep guy, so I need a bit of help identifying some Drosera and Pinguicula. Please excuse the weeds...part of trying to get id's is so I know what soil mix to use when I repot these. Thanks!

    Ping 1


    Ping 2





    Ping 3

    Ping 4


    Drosera 1

    Finger for scale


    Drosera 2

    Drosera 3

    Drosera 1 is D. Burmanii or sessifolia..think Burmanii though..
    Ping 1 actually kinda looks like D. Adalea to me but can't really tell

    Ping 2 looks like moctezumae or moctezumae x. Gigantea

    Drosera 2 looks like Spathulata or tokiensis

    Forgive spelling not 100% sure though

    Ping 4 looks like it might be P. agnata "True Blue" hard to see the flower though. Ping 2 looks like P. moctezumae, Ping 3 may also be moctezumae, Ping 1 needs to grow and possibly flower. Ping IDs are tough without flowers. Some look very similar.

    I use 100% turface with my mexican pings, the only weed I get in it is a low moss that doesn't seem to bother me or the plants.

    I'm junk with Drosera ID but I agree #1 looks like D. burmanii or D. sessifolia.

    Ping 1: hard to ID without growing more. The big glands make me want to say P. colimensis but I'm almost certainly wrong.
    Ping 2: P. moctezumae
    Ping 3: P. moctezumae or a hybrid involving it
    Ping 4: really big P. agnata

    Drosera 1: D. burmannii
    Drosera 2: D. aliciae maybe?
    Drosera 3: maybe D. natalensis ?
