Identifying Pinguicula

Recommended Posts

Years ago my cats got into one of my trays of Mexican Pinguicula and pulled every single tag out (and many plants). I've been meaning to go through and re-identify those plants but always seemed to put it off. Today I tried to tackle the project but became frustrated by the similarities of so many of the flowers. Is there a page or book that shows or describes the exact intricate differences of the Mexican Pings next to each other? Sort of a comparison between species and cultivars for the purposes of identification? I tried using the CP photo finder but it didn't quite fit the bill.

I hope I'm making some sense here.. I just spent the past 6 days moving into our new house so I'm a bit out of it.

Try: http://www.pinguicula.org/pages/pages_prin...es/pictures.htm

Other than that there are lots of websites with photos but none that are very comprehensive that I have found.

Do you have your original list of names so that you can narrow it down a bit?

If you have a digital camera, you could try posting some on here for us to try to identify.

Good luck with settling into your new house! :thanks:

Thank you.. I had already checked those sites :-)

I just wish there was something made specifically for identification...
