  1. Give it a shot. I'd like to know I'm not the only freak that has it work for them... And Ben I'd have to agree with Jim, east isn't the best for Pinguicula, I had mine in a east window during the start of winter, they all became very elongated. Put them under lights after that, and they all came back to proper shape.
  2. After round 2 yes. But if you look at the second picture in zero's original post (this thread) The plantlets could be removed from those leaves already. In my swampy LFS mix, they root fine from that size. The parent leaves in that picture look healthy enough to produce more plantlets aswell. I should also note, that I don't cover the bowl that I have the Mix in.
  3. Well just to give the complete opposite of Jim. I have the best success in swampy Live LFS. The last batch of pullings I did I removed the first batch of plantlets, put the original leaves back intot he swampy live LFS and they produced another round of plantlets for me. I have also had a plantlet form dead center on he leaf of P. emarginata
  4. Temp wise. Mine all sprouted fine w day 26C/80F night 20C/68F
  5. Laura is right on. Allelochems are plant inhibitors. All plants produce them in some amount and mixture, The effectiveness is based on the strength and make-up produced by that specific species, and the resistance level of the species trying to grow in the area of effect. A plant is only called allelopathic, if it's particular allelochemical makeup is of a certain strength. The pesticides produced by plants have another name that has slipped my mind at the moment. They also produce fungicides, and rodenticides.
  6. After seeing a site selling pygmies bare root, I sent this question to listserve. Everyone that responded said that most are ok to transplant, and even send bare root. D. scorpioides, was the only one I was told can't be moved. Atleast one of the answers came from a reputable site, and grower.
  7. Hmm, now I need to word this carefully. The Original Pinguicula 'Pirouette' was made by the following crosses P. agnata x (moranensis x ehlersiae) (ok Pman?) Any way, your plant imho, doesn't look like the pictures for Pinguicula 'Pirouette' Although that could be do to lighting, leaf shape and flower coloration seem to vary greatly with lighting. It could also be someone was trying to mimic the cultivar, but got a different looking plant. Or it could be a different cross or mis-labelled as you already stated.
  8. I'll take a shot at the Pinguicula [unknown Hybrid], if nothing else just to get some ideas flowing. Pinguicula esseriana x (agnata x moctezumae) - not that i even know if this is genetically possible
  9. Lighting really seems to affect the flower coloration on that plant. Here is the last flower it produced for me prior to adding lights.
  10. Ok, a few more then. Pinguicula jamauvensis Pinguicula emarginata X cyclosecta Pinguicula gigantea Drosera capensis 'Albino' - with some food & without Drosera capensis Drosera spatulata - Flower buds Pinguicula agnata var. scented X potensiensis Utricularia bisquamata Utricularia nephrophylla Nepenthes ramispina Drosera dielsiana
  11. I don't know the answer, but not everything has the same freezing point.

    It was sold to me as a Pinguicula 'Mola'. Which I beleive is actualy P. 'Hameln'. However this is clearly neither. I should have known by the leaves alone, but don't think I ever looked it up until it flowered. Anyway, if anyone can get me close that would be great.
  13. I cropped some of the pictures, some I haven't done anything with. All shots are just taken as point and shoot. I haven't started trying to play with any settings yet. Nepenthes ramispina Pinguicula jamauvensis - You can really see how elongated everything got without proper lighting, and you can also see the new leaves that have grown since then. - Flower is almost open. I'll get a shot of it fully open tomorrow. Pinguicula 'Aphrodite' - Off to the right you can see plantlets, starting on a couple leaves. Drosera capensis 'Albino' Drosera dielsiana
  14. If I am remembering correctly. When superscript isn't available isn't ^2 the accepted way to write that.
