I'm hoping wiser heads than mine can advise me on this. I have been given some Pinguicula Laueana seeds, but no instructions on growing them.

I've had success growing Sarracenia from seed, as well as Drosera, so can get the more challenging seeds to grow.

Any help / suggestions much appreciated.

Sow them on the surface of a 1/2 peat/sand mix, even a peat/perlite mix and keep moist, warm, and in the light. No stratification needed as these aren't temperate, room temperature should be OK, 75 to 80 F would be ideal.
I've also read that it might be beneficial to add some lime (the alkaline mineral, not the fruit) to the media to counter some of the acidity of the peat for better results.
