Hi guys,

after a while I want to show you some flowers of my mexican Pinguicula. Hope you like them!

First about one month ago:

Posted Image
P. rotundiflora was realy a beauty this year.

Posted Image
P. gracilis as well :D

Posted Image
Posted Image
P. reticulata showed only one flower so far, but there'll be more!

Posted Image
P. hemiepiphytica I pictured in the last period of the flower...

Posted Image
P. emarginata is cute the whole year but much more intense in winter!

Posted Image
Here is the pale-flower-form of P. emarginata with the first flower.

Posted Image
Posted Image
P. mirandae not that common in cultivation.

Posted Image
P. ibarrae is wonderfull especially because of the red margins.

Posted Image
P. ehlersiae 'Santa Gertrudis' jaust sets flowers.

And last but not least some flower-display:

Posted Image


Hope you like them!

Regards Marcus

Continuing the flower show with pictures of the last week.

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!

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

Posted Image

And now look what P. emarginata 'pale flower' did. The plant is even nicer then the flower :D

Posted ImagePosted Image

That's how P. ehlersiae 'Santa Gertrudis' looks like.

Posted Image

And whats new? P. jaumavensis for example!

Posted Image

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

Posted Image

And her are two other P. ehlersiae locations. First we have Ascension

Posted Image

And second a form from Santa Catarina.

Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

SOme others are still getting to the bloom-stage

For excample P. martinezii:

Posted Image

or P. chuquisacensis. I haven't got any idea where it got the fly from in winter...

Posted Image

Posted Image

One of my most beautiful pots is this one! It's a P. ehlersiae from Ixmiquilpan, Hidalgo.

Posted Image

At the end here is a shot of a part of my display.

Regards Marcus

Hi Marcus,

I love it..! :thumbsup:
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.

Cheers,
Markus
