  1. At the Cameron Highlands you should find N. ramispina, N. macfarnalei and N. sanguinea, id say also some hybrids. There are guided tours to Gunung Brinchang and yes its doable in one day. Genting Highlands should have the same set of plants, although far less accessible if you dont know the area.
  2. For the safety of the users of that road i suppose...
  3. Canon 6D and 24-70mm f4 L IS USM with macro function. Its a really great combo for in situ pictures, as i can geotag thanks to Canon 6Ds GPS, and the 24-70mm lens lets me get some overview shots at 24mm and some closeups with the macrofunction at 70mm. It is quite challenging though, as its near impossible not to block the light at such a close focusing distance. Looking forward to posting some great shots!
  4. Wow, fantastic setup! You changed it quite a bit, it now looks very inspired by Jürg Steigers famous Pinguicula wall. Good job.
  5. Hybrid guessing is never easy! What other pings does your friend grow? Then maybe we can narrow it down.
  6. Nice tender colouring, beautiful display of flowers.
  7. Pinguicula mariae is a truly stunning species. Many thanks for sharing. But i was asking myself, if they recieved a little bit too much heat? Because the corolla lobes of some plants seem a bit curled up (not by much though), or is this just due to natural variation? You have also seen the plants in situ, if i remember correctly? Can you enlighten me?
  8. What a dubious author...! Joking aside, good to know that P. grandiflora subsp. rosea also does hybrids with P. vulgaris like subsp. grandiflora, eventhough it was to be assumed. Would be interesting to find some hybrids of the pallida form too and how they look like. Also glad you took into consideration the fertility or in this case sterility of the hybrid. Thanks for sharing!
  9. The hybrid-theory has yet to be proven via DNA analysis and artificial crossings. I am still not entirely convinced, since P. apuana doesnt look exactly like a crossing of these two parent specimens, in my opinion. Yet, i am open to this thesis and i hope we will find an answer in near future. The high variability of P. apuana is quite impressive, tough. I hope i can get some seed of this clone and will see how the next generation looks like, with maybe some more "typical" ones.
  10. This might or might not be Pinguicula apuana ;)
  11. the pictures are breathtaking! i love the amount of detail in that pinguicula leave, its so sharp you even can see the sessile glands. very well done, thanks for your patience!
  12. No, i dont have it. Interesting, i have a location data of P. mariae pretty close to P. christinae. But it looks like ill have to double check my mailbox to verify if i made any mistakes when writing down the locations (or maybe the person that told me made a mistake). And by the way, very interesting to know, that there are also some groups of white flowered P. christinae!
  13. Thanks for the update, Fernando!
  14. So, the third butterwort of the Appenine Mountains (after P. mariae and P. apuana) has been described. Does anybody speak italian well enough to enlighten me on some ongoing discussions? ;-) Id like some more information on this species, for example if it was even considered to be a hybrid of P. mariae and P. apuana before making it a new specimen. And while i do have quite accurate location information, how widespread is it actually? Whats the chromosome count? Funny how south of the alps is where speciatian in the genus seems most probable, but northwards, not much going on, at least on the section Pinguicula. But of course theres still much to discover in east europe and asia and judging from a few pics i have seen, one might also have a closer look at western USA/Canada.
