This is a call out to ping lovers here. It's been too quiet on the ping front, so please post photos of some of your favorite Pinguicula.

This is one of my favorites, a moctezumae x gypsicolo from CuriousPlant. They produced ths one in-house. This is the original they sent, which has transitioned from summer form, about 8" across, to the current form as shown in the picture. I would prefer to call them carnivorous vs non-conivorous, but both forms have carnivorous leaves.

Enjoy and please post some of your favorites.

That's a great looking ping, twitcher! The start you sent me of that hybrid is doing very well.

One of my favorite pings now days is good ol', simple moranensis. They're really putting on a show in the greenhouse this spring. Unfortunately, the bright pink color of their flowers doesn't show on camera much.
