Hi all,

some time ago my P. pumila flowered and i must say that i have never seen such a variaty concerning the flowers.
I received it as P. pumila "white flower" ´Seminole Co., Florida, USA´ but in fact only one plant had a pure white flower.

At the beginning i was able to take some pots out of the little terrarium for taking pictures, later it didn´t work anymore without damaging anything.

Dani, this subject must have been a thread you started! :wink:

Erm...as far as I can see you have far too many of this species and there is also a serious lack of space visible, so, you should send two or three pots to me!!!! :yes:

As for variation: Errr, have you ever checked the level of radioactive radiation in your surrounding? :wink: Perhaps that´s the reason for so many mutations...*duck and run*

Wonderful, Dani, really wonderful! I like your favourite muchly as well but also the pure white flower! Tell your Pings my best regards!

Bye

Andreas

BTW: The Tomentosas you sent me are growing! :good2:

That is one nice collection of pumila clones :thumbsup: I am always glad to see lots and lots of nice CP photos! (With CP i meant pings, dews and utrics of course :angel: )

Many thanks to all of you. :yes:

@Andreas, perhaps you are really right about the radioactive radiation, here are some more mutants. :biggrin:

@Megs, reproducing these clones is not that easy because this species normally is an annual species, so you have to sow them out each year. Also you have to pollinate the flowers, otherwise no seed will be produced. It´s interesting to see if there will be again such a big variation next year.

Best regards,

Dani

I prefer the mutant flowers to the normal!
They look great!

I always find it amazing to observe the incredible amount of variation in the flowers of Pinguicula species, even within the same population.

THANKS!!!
Fernando

Wonderfull, only missing the yellow form....

Thanks for sharing Daniel.

No doubts that you are the european specialist grower of the south-eastern USA Pinguicula.

Well, you would need to make a lot of cross polination including all colors. It should also be possible to line breed them in different colors?

Again many thanks for the kind words. :yes:

@Martin, i will try to seperate some clones, hopefully it will work. Cross polination is always better than selfing them.

@Eric, many many thanks, how are your plants doing? I hope you have had germination.
Yes, the yellow form is for sure very intersting, isn´t it P. pumila var. bushwelli?
But till now i have not heard that anybody has it in cultivation.

@Andreas, till now everything is OK with me, no problems with losing my hair. :thumbsup:

@Fernando, yes, this big variety is really incredible. Is it in any other species as big as in this case?

Best regards,

Dani

Hi Daniel, nice pictures.

Hi Carlos,

no in fact it´s an easy grower in comparison to the other US Pinguicula.
About 6-8 months after sowing the plants start to flower, but most plants are dying after flowering or are even flowering to death so in fact you have to pollinate them in time to receive some seed for the next season.

Best regards,

Dani

A leaf cutting would be a valid way to maintain the species, if no seeds? :blush:

Hi Carlos,

till now i have not tried leaf cuttings because i had enough plants.

I have often read that leaf cuttings should not work in the case of the northeast US Pinguicula but this information is simply not the truth.
In the past i tried it with P. ionantha and P. lutea and it worked.
So it should also work with P. pumila.

Best regards,

Dani
