I posted here about my pinguicula cyclosecta a while ago, about a year I think, back when they came in the mail and I was shocked at how tiny they were!
Back last summer:
They look like this now:
Ironically, the bigger of the two was the one that was smaller when I got them. For some reason, the one that was originally bigger just got stunted in growth and slowed down vs the small one. They actually went through dormancy during winter by themselves even though I didn't do anything with the lighting, they just straight up turned into the little succulent form.
They're now out of the succulent form and are growing carnivorous leaves now, but they still look pretty small to me, especially the one on the right. They're starting to catch some fungus gnats though which should give them a boost, but I was wondering if there's anything else I can do for them? Should I change them out of the potting mix they came in originally? It's starting to grow some moss. Does that impact their growth at all? I can make a perlite, peat, vermuculite, sand mix that I've been growing my Gigantea in to great success. Would that be better for them?
Or does none of this really matter and I should just let them go about their own business?
