    Thomas, Do you hold all your carnivorous on greenhouse? I grow my sarracenias on balcony.

    I grow most of my CPs in the garden from May to September. Many of them in full sun.

    Some spring bloomers:

    Pinguicula laueana from Mexico:

    Good grief, Thomas. I'm overwhelmed by one set of pictures and then another set blows my mind and then you come across with another and another. Fantastic! Really makes me want to intersperse CP's with my orchids. Forget about photographing them! Excellent!!!!!

    Once again your pictures are out of this world. I really love the Pinguicula laueana too!
