    by the way, do you see the reduction in size of individual growths like this as the plant divides itself into many segments??

    I don't quite like the way it looks actually.

    My plants aren't really clumpers (probably because of the way i grow them)

    But they could be getting smaller because they're focused on dividing or they may be competing with the other divisions for light or maybe even just general competition for nutrients. I'm not really sure actually, maybe asking on one of the Facebook pages would get you a better answer?

    I don't know.
    It seems like this is normal for it.
    I just miss when it was one big plant with wide flat leaves.

    I grow Pinguicula in a mix 75% peat moss / 25% coarse sand with great succes since many years. The flowers color intensify when they are cultivate colder.

    That is a nice one. The rosettes look really good.

    Update in three months.

    It has now twenty growths packed in there.
    A couple two growths in the center are getting larger pushing other out. lol

    Still in its old pot with old mix.

    Looking through last year's pictures, I'm surprised how good of a grower this thing is!

    Now it's packing nearly 30 growths!
    I am yet to put my butt in gear and relieve this guy a little sooner than later.
    The ones around the edge of the pot started to walk over and out, and some are dry and dead. probably no room for roots.

    Bursting into bloom at the moment.
    Sorry about the terrible photo.
