    Growing this group of Pinguicula, outside, should depend mostly on your ability to approximate their natural environment, or improve on it. I've often considered trying to do as you mention, but it...

    I have often considered such a setup for growing these plants, but never got around to it. Yours seems very practical and is obviously very functional, too. Would you be willing to provide the...

    Now, back, closer to the subject:

    So far I've only ever grown Byblis liniflora, and I began with those seed I received from W.I.P. back in the 1970's. But I learned to keep them going, not as...

    Dead on arrival. It was about a half dozen small, but live plants. They had rotted away to nearly nothing. I had to examine their pot with a magnifying glass, to even discern their remains. In the...
