I'm wanting to do a giveaway in the near future for some extra D. natalensis & P. esseriana (light pink) that I have. Problem is, I'm not sure how large I should let these guys grow before offering them. A couple of the largest D. natalensis are 1/2". Am I correct that it would be best to wait...
I have limited space for carnivorous plants, but for those who are interested, this is my list. I kind of like my plants bloody, red, and dangerous looking. I also have regular house plants, but I'm definitely not listing those as there are too many.
Pink is quantity for trade/sell. Green is...
I've been wanting to give back for the help I've received and any plants I've received here. I finally have something to spare. I know it isn't much but for now I'm giving what I can. They aren't full blown plants, I rooted leaf pulls about a month or so ago. I have three species: esseriana...

I torture my P. gigantea outside in low humidity 40-60% in San Diego. Some are in full sun and hang on as long as they are kept wet, others are in shade. But they all grow very slowly.
Is this typical of the species?

I want to expand my CP collection but don't have any CPs to trade with. I do however have an excess of some aquatic plants that I can trade off, some grown emersed some submersed, I will try to specify which. I'm making the list mostly from memory without going down to check the bins at all so...
Today was really rough. I lost what looks like my entire Pinguicula collection. VA got hit by an unexpected heatwave after a few weeks of cool temperatures and all of my Pings dried out and melted. To make it worse, the water jug ruptured and washed all of them out of their media...

my project ping rock is kind of coming along (too many pots, decided to put them all on a rock to save room)... moss needs to grow everywhere so the loose sand and peat doesnt fall off, but otherwise i guess everything is doing alright. wanted to share some pics...
I'm looking into getting Mexican pings to be kept on windowsill. I have a nice little south western window that gets 3-4 hours of direct sunlight in the summer and more in the winter. I know P. 'piroutte' and P. moranensis will be good species to keep in that way. I also have my eye on P...
