Fake Pinguicula ehlersiae?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, in Lithuania perhaps all growers have Pinguicula ehlersiae from the same mother plant, but none of us is sure whether it's true ehlersiae or some moranensis hybrid... What you think? :)

I do not see a picture when following your links. Probably I may have to register to that forum first? In that case it might be easier if you post the pictures elsewhere.

 

Best regards

That is P. 'Sethos'. 

 

Some people call "Fake Weser" as a lot of 'Sethos' got labeled as 'Weser' a while back.

I agree, a strong resemblance to Pinguicula 'Sethos'. It most likely is that cultivar. It has no resemblance to any form of Pinguicula ehlersiae. It may simply be a mislabel confusion. Some people, who aren't that familiar with the various species, hybrids, and cultivars of Mexican/equatorial Pinguicula can make such mistakes. When I first began my interest in these plants, one of the first plants I acquired was identified to me as Pinguicula 'Weser'. It wasn't until I had propagated it and given away several dozen divisions, that I realized its true identity was Pinguicula 'Sethos'. I had many people to notify of my error. As you can see, I also had photographs to edit.
