My collection of mexican pinguicula

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

my pings seemd to feel very comfortable this years and grew much larger than last year.

So this was the reason to take pictures of my entire collection.

 

Last time I did this, was in september 2010. You can take a look here.

I´m a bit ashamed by the look of the plants and the technique of the photos now, but you can get an idea of the delvelopement...

 

Today, I use bigger pots, another mix of substrate and much, much more light.

As far as available, I show one photo of the plant with summer leaves, one with winter leaves and a flower closeup.

For those, which cannot await new photos, I uploaded all of them to the gallery.

 

 
So, here´s the first part of the photos. (It´s a mass, I´ll add them day by day when I have time to spare).

 

Pinguicula acuminata

Hopefully I can add some more today.

... mmhhh, good meal!

 

Thank you guys, I´ll do my best.

 

@SFLGuy

I use a very colourfull mix with main components dark peat (H6) and pumice.

In detail it´s 6 parts peat, 3 parts pumice, 2 parts vermiculite, 2 parts sand, one part clay, one part perlite and one part coconut fibre.

 

Here we go, the next ones are:

 

Pinguicula sp. ANPA D

Yes, I grow them under two T8-tubes with reflector (840 and 865) in ca. 25cm distance to the plants.

I use them for 12 hours in the summer and step by step down to 7 hours in winter.

For me it's absolutely neccessary to give them enough light.

Without this, you will not get the colouration and the plants stay mostely green.

I think, insufficient light is the reason, that some philistines misscall the pings "carnivorous salad".

I tried to grow them in the greenhouse under natural sunlight in 2011. The colouration was good but the summerheat let them suffer to much, so I gave up the project.

Hi,

 

Beautiful photos ! It is not my favorite kind but I love particularly this specie : Pinguicula esseriana, Pinguicula cyclosecta and Pinguicula hemiepiphytica :)

As other have said, beautiful photographs!  You are inspiring me both to collect more pings, and to use my camera to take better pics of my plants! :)

Thanks for reply! I tried them outside too this year, in a ventilated cold frame (partially underground and walls made of fine mesh, only roof is made of polycarbonate). The heat was not a problem there, but slugs damaged plants a lot, even though i tried hard to prevent them to get there...

Hi 'kisscool',

first, thanks for the compliment.

And second, why do you think that it isn't the right one? If I compare it to this

http://icps.proboards.com/thread/3544

and many other pictures in the CPPhotofinder, I cannot find the difference.

I'm still waiting for the first flower of this species, it's still a young plant...

Because the clone widely spred into culture is simply not the right species, it doesn't match the description in most aspects. First of all, it doesn't form winter rosette for example. The real species is only in culture for one year or so. I will try to make some pictures soon to show it.

Ah, OK.

Do you have any idea, what this is instead?

It does not match any other species I grow.

By the way, do you know a source where I can get the real species?

Oh, and feel free to post the pics here. I'm interested in seeing the true species.

I agree Christian, I too wish that anyone who says " it's not the correct species ", should also say why this is the case. This way we can all learn and avoid making the same mistake, or challenge the judgement if we feel we can make a better call. :Laie_97:

The other plants aren´t showy enough but I´ll post pictures as soon as they are.

 

I now want to start showing pictures of my ping-hybrids.

As long as they are "self-produced", I´m going to write some words about the cross.

 

So, here we go with...

Hello Christian,

 

I am pretty sure those ANPA plants are all cultivars of moranensis.

Hi Dave,

yes, you are right.

These plants were grown by ANdre PAvlovic and Jan Flisek, who got leaves from him, named the plants ANPA A, ANPA B, ANPA C and ANPA D.

As far as I know, all of them are P. moranensis clones from different locations.

More information here:

Dear Longma and Christian,

 

Two growers in Europe have received the originated seeds from Guatemala (I am one of them) and gave it to a cp nursery to insure germination and widespreads.  

 

It was written : "P. mesophytica, Vera Paz Form, Guatemala".

P. mesophytica was not found in Vera Paz and the sender, a botanist in Guatemala told us that the species was identified by Dr Zamudio. So we have no reason to think of a wrong plant. After germination and flowering, we discovered that this species was not fitting with the description of P. mesophytica by Dr Zamudio. But unfortunately, the species was distributed before we confirmed the identification. But as I wrote, the sender gave us the Dr Zamudio's name as a moral guarantee and the seeds was offered and not sold.  

 

The species is a P. moranensis from Vera Paz, Guatemala and not P. mesophytica.

 

As far as I know, the true specie entered cultivation  but not yet in Europe but it should be available in a few years as soon as the grower will have seeds.

Many thanks to you Eric, now I understand the circumstances.

I´ll correct the plant lables and hope to get the true species soon.

 

And here are the next hybrid pictures:

 

Pinguicula emarginata x sp. ANPA C

 

Beginning with a hybrid "made" by myself. The plants are very close to the mother plant P. emarginata in summer. In the winter they form dense winterrosettes like the father.

The colouration of the flowers reaches from nearly white to dark violet striped. It flowers from the winter- and the summerrosette, nearly year-round.

Pinguicula sp. Lautner 92/52 x gypsicola 'Buena Vista'

 

(I won the seeds of that hybrid at a forum auction. C. Weinberger did the cross. It´s one of my favourites.

Beautyfull colours, dense droplets and a gypsicola-winterrosette.)

 

lautner_x_gypsicola_pfl_zps2f83a51e.jpg

medusina_ehlersiae_moranensis_win_zps53f

 

medusina_ehlersiae_moranensis_bl_zps2842

 

Pinguicula moctezumae x sp. ANPA C

 

... is another one of my own crosses. The plant has long leaves like P. moctezumae, but they are much broader.

It forms no real winterrosette, only stays a little smaller when letting it dry out in winter.

The flower is a mix of both plarent plants.

Hello again,

after some days, here we go with the next update of the hybrid-photos.

Starting with the one, I´m very proud of:

Pinguicula nivalis x moctezumae

... is a cross of the tiny P. nivalis and the long-leafed P. moctezumae, which I did in early 2010.

This plants stay very small, around 4-5cm in diameter, but have the long leaf appearance from the moctezumae.

In the center, it is hary like the nivalis and the leaf colour can turn into light brown.

Unfortunately I missed to photograph the only flower it had up to now.

The form was nivalis-like but it had a light pinkish touch in colour.

nivalis_x_moctezumae_pfl_zpsa8534619.jpg

nivalis_x_moctezumae1_det_zpse6d88707.jp

Pinguicula 'Tina'

tina_pfl_zpsf9edbe60.jpg

tina_win_zpsc6c47c86.jpg

tina_bl_zps213bbcde.jpg

Pinguicula 'Weser'

weser_pfl_zpsbe75a6c8.jpg

That´s all.

I hope you enjoyed the photos and could get an idea from how the Pings can look like when they have enough light.

In the meantime I did some new and interesting crosses. I´ll post them as soon as they show their characteristics.

Best regards,

Christian
