Great plants. I especially like the calderoniae. How do you grow it? Is it difficult?

Cheers,

Greg

Hey guy´s,

I especially like the calderoniae. How do you grow it? Is it difficult?

Same questions from me

I have some P. calderoniae for about a year now and I don´t see that this plant is more difficult than P. medusina or heterophylla. I grow it in a light soil mixture with peat, a little bit sand, vermiculite, perlite. I don´t use any lime although it´s habitat offers large lime amounts. The plants grows on a south facing windowsill with several hours of direct sunlight. A little bit higher humidity is favoured I think, especially when the plant starts to grow from winter rosette. Grow periode started a little bit late, compareable with P. medusina. The pot of the plant stands nearly all time in a little bit water, the airy soil provides the plant to stand to wet, but from even this shouldn´t be critical.

Hi will,

the flashiest differende to all the other Pinguicula with long leaves is the flower. P. calderoniae forms petals with purple flower. The leaves can grow quite large and have a different shape to P. medusina or heterophylla. The onion of the plant is very different, too. Further detaills can be found in the publication of P. calderoniae.

I agree that this is quite expensive, but this year the plant is already cheaper than last year. ;-)
I´ve made a number of leave pullings that develope quite good, and I expect to release some plants at the end of growing season.

Nice looking flowers!

Thanks ;)

Cheers Chris
