    P. lilacina flower

    I wanted to share some pics of a P. lilacina flower. This flower and the few that came before it are from plants started from seed back in late October, just two months ago. The flowers are quite short, only about a 1/4 of an inch long, not including the nectar spur. These plants seem...

    My ping is making a pitcher.

    I have just noticed that my P. gracilis x moctezumae is forming a pitcher like leaf. It is actually something in between a flower stalk and a leaf: Is this normal? :)

    A few Ping species from seed

    If one has the patience to grow these plants from seed, it's an ecomonical way to add some interesting new mexi-pings to one's collection. Recently, i had a chance to again try my hand at germinating a few Pinguicula species from seed. And though the following pics are in no way stellar, as...

    Ping flowers

    When I reduce the photoperiod for my pings in the autumn I always get a flurry of flowers. Perhaps the plants are trying to sow seed before the long, dry winter?

    Hi from Bloomingdale, NJ

    Hi all I found this site via a Google search for culture info on Mexican Pings. But as it turns out, my one and only Mexican Ping was purchased from FlyTrapShop.com this summer-so I should have known about this forum before now. I have a P. moctezumae. I also have a few pots of VFT, about 5...
