Thanks!

I grow my Pinguicula in a bunch of different mixes, just depends what else I was potting at the time, they all have a topdressing of silica sand on their pots.

I grow my plants under T5 high output bulbs, two per shelf.

More pictures:

D. ordensis never fails:

Image

My first Pinguicula propagation success, P. cyclosecta:

Image

D. paradoxa is also quite nice:

Image

P. gigantea is my favorite ping by far, very tough:

Image

Sphagnum growing in with some D. adelae, this sp does well in lowland conditions but I believe it is a temperate species:

Image

D. adelae, my favorite dew to photograph since it has so much dew all the time:

Image

N. veitchii:

I never bothered to check the colour temp and wattage.
Hahahaha! What a coincidence! I'm currently saving up money to buy the exact same one! :lol:

I wonder if 4 per shelf of their High-Output T5 fluorescents would be too much. I'm toying with the idea of buying four 4-foot sunblaster fixtures with their NanoTech reflectors, to put on one of my 4-foot grow racks to test alongside the LED grow lights I'm using, just to compare results. Maybe the LED grow lights are mostly marketing hype. They work, but do they work as well as or much better than fluorescent lights, and if so, do they merit their extremely high price? Just curious about it all and might start a Fluorescent vs. LED Growlights topic in the Artificial Lighting section of the Forum. :D

What is the depth of your growing area, Peat? Mine is 20" depth by 4-feet length. :)

And I am back!

D. slackii is getting a little bigger:

D. burmanii "typical" is looking good:

Image

Bad photo of my schizandra:

Image

D. capensis "red" does not have the colouration that I think it should:

Thanks for looking!

I know that its not 'red' but it looks very healthy as with all of your other plants! :D I especially love the pic of the burmannii where the 'glue' droplets look like CGI effects!
I always love your macro pics! Keep it up! :D

Thanks!

The fuzz on D. ordensis is surprisingly water repellent:

D. burmanii:

Image

D. capensis "albino":

Image

Cephalotus finally has it's red on:

Image

Utricularia longifolia, I would have liked a slightly longer plane of focus on this one but I have yet to get a photo stack program:

Thanks for looking!
