I am asking to be sure :geek: , If someone can tell me, I will appreciate.

Some leafs were damaged; however, there are lots of healthy leafs.

Thanks for answers.

Edit: Sorry for the pictures, I just reloaded them.

Hi! I'm sorry, the images you've uploaded haven't worked. I can say, however, that we won't be able to definitively identify a Mexican Pinguicula until it flowers... if you can get the images working, mind you, we might be able to hazard a guess. P. gigantea is likely the largest of the Mexican pings so it should be fairly obvious if the plant is getting to full size; when it's younger, though, it can look like a swathe of other species/hybrids.

You're welcome! I didn't realise the plant had a flower already, lovely! I believe it's a Pinguicula Tina, a hybrid between P. agnata and P. zecheri. The flower shape on a gigantea is a little different, the colour is also paler than your plant. It looks in good shape, well done!
