Ping ID


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I bought an unlabelled ping from a local plant shop quite a few years back now and I still grow several of its propagated offspring today.

Would someone be able to id it from the attached pics? It would be nice to know what it's called.

Thanks

Ah, the flower looked a little extreme for moranensis, but there are a lot of different moranensis forms...

 

And zecheri is a kind of moranensis with larger flowers...  Interesting...

Thanks for the suggestions, I thought it would be a common easily identifiable form, perhaps not.

 

It does look like the suggestions given when I google it.

 

I don't know much about Pinguiculas but this one seems to do well for me, would it originate from mexico or elsewhere?

It orginates from someone's greenhouse or collection.  It is a hybrid of two Mexican Butterworts.  These are some of the most easily grown Carnivorous Plants.  Basically treat them similar to African Violets and you'll have very little in the way of problems.
