  1. Wow, those are some impressive greenhouses! I just hope you have enough plants to fill them all!

    Viable Pinguicula crosses

    I've just had a quick look at the wikipedia article.. I would assume that only Pinguiculas with the same number of chromosomes could reproduce with eachother? I suppose this is a moot point as I dont know any of the chromosome numbers As for naming: Would the pollen donor be mentioned first or the pollen acceptor (the plant from which the seed would be harvested)? Thanks for your advice so far!

    Viable Pinguicula crosses

    I was going to try and cross a couple of my Mexican Pings as they all seem to be in sync as it were. I was just wondering if all Mexican Pings could cross with all others. For instance would what I like to call long leaved Pings (moctezumae/heterophylla/gypsicola etc.) be able to cross with the small pings (esseriana/jaumavensis/gracilis etc.). The cross I have in mind is a hemiepiphytica x moctezumae perhaps or vice versa. Any guidance would be lover-ly Thanks P.S. I just found out that moctezumae x hemiepiphytica is a viable cross. Haven't seen any flowers though

    Pinguicula emarginata × laueana 'Crimson Flower'

    I really do prefer that unmutated one though! I might have to try my own emarginata x laueana cross and see what we get!

    Pinguicula emarginata × laueana 'Crimson Flower'

    What a cool flower, Iguess we'll see if that extra petal is a stable thing!

    My Utricularia fulva

    Wow, that has to be one of the most beautiful Utric's I have seen - Congratulations! Another one I have to add to the wish-list!
  10. I agree with Noah! The Pings see to work really well on them! Maybe I should have look around for some likely looking rocks! Is it literally sticking a couple of plants on top of the rock? or is some sort of substrate involved?

    A couple of Mexican Pings

    Just a small update, I thought I would miss my P. moctezumae flowering, but here it is, two weeks old now, and I think it will be dying off soon, slightly dicey photos, but you get the idea. thanks

    I live just down the road from Croydon, but was (fortunately) on holiday. I have to say it was a bit omnious coming back after two beautiful weeks in the Jura to a burning town
