I'm from the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan, been growing CPs for about 1 year now and totally addicted.
I've been reading a lot online & in books. I've been primarily active on the reddit page r/SavageGarden learning, sharing pictures, and making some exchanges. I'm trying...
So i've searched this site's threads and many google sites to try and come to a clear consensus on substrates, it doesn't seem there is on (Which is ok! there probably will never be ha!). So this isn't exactly a question about "What substrate should I use", since there are tons of topics devoted...
Pinguicula x 'weser'
Pinguicula agnata x ( moranensis x ehlersiae )
Pinguicula x 'John Rizzi'

Unsure of just what the deal is with this plant. It was one of only two mex pings that went dormant on me this past winter. The other ping, an esseriana, came out of dormancy just fine. The moctezumae, on the other hand, looked like it was going to send up a flower spike but then did this:
Hey TF. I've successfully pollinated a Mexican ping for the first time. My two p. moctezumae clones flowered together. This was at least two weeks ago. The corolla has fallen off, and the ovary is very visibly swollen. How long does it usually take for seed to ripen? What are common practices...
Hey tf. I've recently gotten interested in hoya, and I'm looking to trade for a few to get a feel for them. I have pinguicula to trade, leaf pulls or small struck pulls mostly. A few other thing though.
LF: Hoya rooted starts or cuttings (not h. carnosa.)
What I have to trade:
P. 'Titan' small...
Its time for a picture thread i guess. Mostly pics, but maybe stuff later on? Whatever stuff is.
I divided and potted some things over the weekend, mostly because I wanted to fill the trays I got, hah. I think I need to move the shelf down a couple inches.
Hello, My name is Chris Duncan and I have been growing carnivorous plants for 5 years now. After a few deaths with the recent horrible winters I have actually gotten good at this. So far I have tried my hand at Flytraps, Nepenthes (lowland, highland, and hybrids), sarracenia, drosera(only...
As of 1/6/16 I've been growing carnivores for a little over a year. I have a modest collection still, but it is ever growing. I figured it was time to finally start a grow list. I want to thank the members of this forum, as they have helped me grow my collection with giveaways and trades...
I tried cross pollinating some pings for the first time and it worked! Two out of the three flowers I pollinated are developing seed. The seeds will have the following parentage: Pinguicula ['Aphrodite' (agnata x moctezumae) x (laueana (CP2) x emarginata)-Vic's Clone]
My iPhone wouldn't let me...
Hello everyone, I decided to post my grow list. As you can see I am mostly into Nepenthes and tropical Pinguicula. I will add some pictures soon!

D. muscipula typical
D. anglica Kanaele Bog, Kauai, HI
D. anglica near Lake Constance, Germany
D. "burkeana" (most likely not!)

D. capensis broad leaf [pictures]
D. capensis typical
Decided to start a new pic thread since it's been awhile since I updated pics here (although regulars in chat will have probably seen most of them at one point or another).
Guess we'll start with the indoor stuff:
Half of the large terrarium, full of Sarr seedlings from seed sown last year...
