I'm doing some pullings now all of which are robustly producing leaves. Some with multiple growth points it would appear. However, none of them have produced any roots at all yet. They're about a month or so old. Some a week or two older. They're in a ziploc bag under lights. They are misted...
I am looking for cold temperate pinguicula. I'm not sure if shipping them while in winter buds would be best. If there is a better time of year please inform me. Also I am looking for groups of plants. Hopefully not just one or two.
Have lots of plants to trade so if you have something avaiable...

Good evening, just need a little advice. I am mostly a pinguicula, Heliaphorma, cephalotus guy, but would like to add to my nepenthes collection. What are your favorite hybirds? Its really hard to see when they aren't fully grown. Currently I have N. Ventricosa, N. Glandulifera, N. Robcantleyi x...
I ordered a Pinguicula moctezumae in the mail. It's a little bit sad looking. I took a leaf that had roots attached from the P. moctezumae and stuck that pulling in my Aphrodites pot, and another leaf came loose during potting so I have back ups in WCS.
I potted it up in peat and pumice with...
I read on here a few months ago about disturbances in the apical meristem of Pinguicula causing crestate growth. It seems like most of the information I have found on this growth has been due to a pest of some kind, but I am curious if anyone has tried to initiate this growth pattern by a...
I am assuming they are turning into smaller succulent leaves. So that's the cue to reduce watering. BUT MAN, they look so different compared to when they first arrived Sept and in October. Since I'm a first time grower I don't really know if i'm doing things right. So need expert opinions...

Recently I picked all kinds of free Tillandsia and Bromeliads..., A local Dr. that traveled the world doing research on plants was selling off his collection and moving.

After growing out a large assortment of seedlings from a crossing of Pinguicula 'Sethos' x self, I selected one plant from that group, that, to me, was special. I propagated it, then distributed a few of them to select individuals (whom I have forgotten - oops). Here are a few pics of the plant...
I'd been growing this species (Pinguicula emarginata) for several years, having a large population of them, all derived from a single original plant.
I enjoy this species, one of the homophyllous growth types, and one that doesn't do well unless kept continuously moist, more like the...
It really doesn't matter what media (in this case half silica sand and half coral sand) I use, it is always wet. That's because I keep my potted Mexican/equitorial Pinguicula in plastic trays, and I keep the water levels in the trays, near the top of the media levels in the pots. I do this...
Here is a pic of one of my Pinguicula cyclosecta in a 3.5 inch pot. The plant is transitioning to winter leaf form. The media is pumice with a little silica sand mixed in. The dark surface on the media is a film that forms, over time - it is likely a mixture of bacteria/algae and other...
I have been on planning on changing my mexican Pinguicula soil to a pure mineral base. I am currently using the sarracenia northwest mix which contains sand, peat and perlite. It just seems a little too wet. After reading as many posts I can on this forum on pure mineral mixes I am still...
Dear fellow plant addicts,
I happen to have some monstrously overgrown plants in need of a haircut. Looking to see if anybody would want the pieces.

I have freshly collected seed of the Kelcyre, Albania locality of Pinguicula hirtiflora to swop for seed of any of the other forms/ localities within the Pinguicula hirtiflora/crystallina complex.
