    Pinguicula Pumila

    Anybody know how roughly how long it takes for Pinguicula Pumila seeds to germinate at 75 Fahrenheit? Thanks for the info!

    Bonjour

    your seeds were fresh ?

    in what substrate do you germinate them?

    Probably not as fresh as one would like but I don't really know. I planted them in a mix of 1/2 peat and 1/2 non-calcareous sand and they are at about 80% humidity.

    Bonjour

    with the subtropical US it is better to use fresh seeds, here all the old seeds have never germinated too.

    otherwise your growing conditions look good

    I agree I would prefer fresh but you get what you can get. I wish more people were interested in the native U.S. Pings but such is not the case in the States. Ah Well...

    I find like you, that a pity, especially since other species, under species, variety or form are still to discover or rediscover 'in situ'
