    Ping growing UP and not OUT

    My Ping.Jaumavensis seems to be growing UP and not out or spreading. What are your thoughts on this plant? Too much light? Not enough light? Too much or too little water? I'm using high output T5 lights Thoughts?

    What pinguicula is this?

    I just received this but it had no ID and I have no idea what ping it might be. I notice it has no dew on leaves so I think they are winter non carnivorous leaves. Here are the photos: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet Thank you for the help.
