I have this tiny Pinguicula Agnata that has not done very well for me. I think it might actually have shrunk :cry: .
Anyway I will give it to someone that has other pings and knows what they need to thrive. Please don't enter if pings aren't your thing either. Drawing Friday.... The usual procedure.. Shipping is probably $3

I agree. For all mexican pings I use 100% turface that is standing always in water. Plently of air for roots, clay nutrients for the plant, and it always stays moist.

I watered it before I took the picture.. :lol:
But I probably have it potted in the wrong media. I was told that I would like to live in a more humid environment. So I keep it with my highland nepenthes on a humidity tray. But not sitting in water..
