Hello everybody,

after some nice flowers in the past weeks I would like to start a little contest. Attached you can find some Pinguicula pictures. Some of them are pure plants others are hybrids. Some plants are quite easy to guess others perhaps not.

The rules:
The person that has guessed the most plants (the name is enough, no location data or so needed) correct will win the first price. The winnings:
Place 1: 1 x Pinguicula ´Jannes´ + 1 x Pinguicula ´Johanna´, free shipping (within Germany and EU)

Place 2: Some seeds (maybe 10 or more if I have enough) of a crossing "Pinguicula ??? x Pinguicula cyclosecta". I forgott to write the name of the pollen receiving plant on the seed, perhaps it was Pinguicula gypsicola ´buena vista´.

If two persons habe the same amount of right plants, the first post will win. I can only accept answers that were not edited after posting, so that nobody can chance his guesses. End of game will be sunday 15.04.2012 at 20.00 o´clock middle european summer time. Every person is allowed to give one guess (one answer), additional guesses in a second posting or changes are not allowed (feel free to discuss). It depends on the number of participants how fast I can tell you the winners and send the plants/seeds. Please be patient ;-) I will contact the winners.

This game has been startet in german GFP forum at the same time. All guesses on both forums (here and GFP) are equal.
I have written enough in bad english, here the plants:

plant 1:

plant 2:

plant 3, quite hard to guess without flower ;-)

plant 4:

plant 5:

plant 6:

Have fun.

Cheers Chris

Hi Chris,

What a hard guess without labellings ;-)

I would try
plant 1:
P. rectifolia (P. sp. tonola)
plant 2:
P. pilosa
plant 3 :
P. potosiensis or P. moranensis var moranensis
plant 4:
P. crassifolia
plant 5:
P. moranensis x P. gypsicola
plant 6:
P. enigma (P. cyclosecta)

so my shots :hunter:

1 rectifolia
2 it can be pilosa
4 crassifolia

and now it pretty hard for me.
3 moranensis
5 I really don't know maybe one of the plants from first prize Pinguicula agnata x debbertiana
6 this can be a trap and I think about this

others are hybrids.

so my shot is for second plant from 1st prize Pinguicula debbertiana x cyclosecta

I hope it is correct. I want win 1st prize :D

Hello guys,

very interesting replys, here are the correct labels:
Pflanze 1: P. rectifolia
with a missing petale
Pflanze 2: P. pilosa
Pflanze 3: P. lautner 92/52 x P. gypsicola ´buena vista´
well I think it was impossible to guess correct ;-)
Pflanze 4: P. crassifolia
beautiful color :)
Pflanze 5: P. laueana x debbertiana
wonderful and large flower, that I could see for the first time some days ago, really impressive for me
Pflanze 6: P. jaumavensis x cyclosecta
Die cyclosecta lässt sich nicht verbergen, viele haben ja auf P. ´Jannes´ getippt.
Of course you can see that the plant is close to P. cyclosecta

For any correct plant you got one point, if it was a hybrid each correct part of the plant gave 0.5 points. The winners are:
1st price: simone, I was really impressed from your guesses, quite good
2nd price: piranha, well done

Thanks for participation, perhaps I will repeat this another time. :)

Cheers Chris
