Posted 20 February 2012 - 10:38 AM
after a while I want to show you some flowers of my mexican Pinguicula. Hope you like them!
First about one month ago:
P. rotundiflora was realy a beauty this year.
P. gracilis as well
P. reticulata showed only one flower so far, but there'll be more!
P. hemiepiphytica I pictured in the last period of the flower...
P. emarginata is cute the whole year but much more intense in winter!
Here is the pale-flower-form of P. emarginata with the first flower.
P. mirandae not that common in cultivation.
P. ibarrae is wonderfull especially because of the red margins.
P. ehlersiae 'Santa Gertrudis' jaust sets flowers.
And last but not least some flower-display:
Hope you like them!

Let's see what has happend!
First a picture of last weekend. As you see my plants stand really cold and where nearly freezing. This was close!
Now lets go to some plants. In the first picture you can see what happend to P. mirandae. I wanted to show that the almost pure white young flower get much more pinkisch as they get older (right). But it's pretty hard to show with the camera!
And now look what P. emarginata 'pale flower' did. The plant is even nicer then the flower
That's how P. ehlersiae 'Santa Gertrudis' looks like.
And whats new? P. jaumavensis for example!
Or maybe this P. emarginata hybrid? I don't know what the other parent plant is. If somebody has a good idea, please tell me!
And her are two other P. ehlersiae locations. First we have Ascension
And second a form from Santa Catarina.
P. nivalis is one of the plants I don't like to take pictures. It's not easy to get a good picture of it.
SOme others are still getting to the bloom-stage
For excample P. martinezii:
or P. chuquisacensis. I haven't got any idea where it got the fly from in winter...
One of my most beautiful pots is this one! It's a P. ehlersiae from Ixmiquilpan, Hidalgo.
At the end here is a shot of a part of my display.

I love it..!
The nearing spring is the best time to see such a flower show of the winter flowering mexican pings.
The missing crossing partner of the P. emarginata could be P. rectifolia/P. spec. Tonala.
If you would like to see how the flower of P. martinezii looks like just visit my website - aber ich will dir natürlich nicht die Spannung nehmen
One of my plants flowered for the first time last week.

thanks a lot for the nice comments! I'm really happy that you like my plants. I'll show some rare plants in extra threads soon I think. ;)
... Remember to create some interesting hybrids while you still have the chance!
I did my best, lets see what happens :)
