Hello all,

Here are so pictures of Pinguicula elongata from june:

 

You can see the two types of carnivorous leaves, the third type being the scale surrounding the hibernaculum. Trichomes are also present on the back side of the leaves, but that's not really clear here, I will put better pictures later.

My compliments! I havent got the courage to try this plant yet. :-) Where do you grow it, in your altered wine-refrigerator?

Wow, congrats!! How difficult to cultivate are you finding this species? Do you know where your plants are from?

Thank you all!

No, I'm growing it outside.

Quite easy in my conditions I guess, I'm not really doing anything special for it. It is from BCP, so the location should be "hills east of Bogota", although it was not written on the label Kamil sent me.

Hi Aymeric,

 

congratulations! These elongata look amazing. I've never tried to cultivate this species cause I thought it would be impossible to imitate it's habbitat conditions. If the plants look that wonderfull next year, I might try some ;)

 

I keep fingers crossed for good growth. Hopefully this species will really get widespread in cultivation soon.

 

Cheers Marcus

Just outside? Wow! I have never thought it would be possible as i have read about its natural conditions. Fingers crossed for the future!

Well done Aymeric! How long do you grow these four plants already? Do you have more infos about your cultivation?? Especially how you deal with the two resting phases each year!?

Questions over questions... :D

 

Cheers

Marc

Hi Aymeric,

 

wow, congratulations.

I also have never tried to cultivate this species because I thought it would be too difficult to imitate it's habitat conditions.

So perhaps i should try it in the near future.

 

Best regards,

Dani

Thanks Marc and Daniel

I am growing it for about 10 months now. This pot is made of "moor substrate" (I'm not sure about the correct translation). I also have another pot made of peat with one plant but it is clearly not my best plant. But more interesting, my plants don't show 2 resting phases. I received them as buds last autumn, and started to grow for a few weeks (I guess because of changing conditions). They return to rest as bud through the winter and starting to grow again during spring, first emetting triangular leaves, then emitting the long leaves. But by now they are clearly not showing new signs of restin period.

Does anyone know what kind of rock it grows on in the natural habitat? I can't find any information regarding it on the Internet.
