Hey all,

My older Pinguicula cyclosecta seems to be turning brown on the edges of the leaves. I repotted it and another one into a mix of horicultural sand, peat moss, and perlite months ago, and it all seemed ok.

The other pinguicula cyclosecta has woken up from dormancy and is turning nice and purple, but this one is turning brown around the edges.

I water with distilled water, and I make sure to keep the plants on the barely moist side, since I know they can rot if you water them too much.

Only change I've really made is I've moved them just a few inches under a growlight. Is it burning, or is it somehow suffering from rot?

Darn, that sucks.

No idea how it ended up with that, maybe I somehow watered too much?

I peeled off a few leaves off this one and the second ping I have and put them on some wet peat, and hopefully they strike.

Not sure how easy it is to propagate this kind, since the leaves are REALLY tiny compared to my gingantea, but fingers crossed.
