    Thumbs up

    Those of you growing this hybrid -- have you noticed that the flower is somewhat unique among Pinguicula, in that it is a dark purplish-red that has an irridescent quality similar to velvet. I find that I have been unable to acquire an accurate image of the blossoms using digital photography. I am planning to try to capture it using conventional film, soon.

    I have propagated several of these by leaf cuttings -- my parent plant is currently blooming and I plan to try using it to create hybrids, soon.

    I just received this hybrid a few weeks ago. It hasn't flowered yet, but I do notice how well it responded to my attic and how well its leaf cuttings strike. So much better than a P. jaumviensis! Can you post a picture?

    I'll try to get around to taking a current shot tonight and put it up. I'm up in the Tucson foothills presently at the Ventana Canyon resort where I'm accompanying my wife on her training conference.

    The parent plant split its crown at the beginning of this flowering cycle. One flower has faded, one flower has a broken stalk, and one has just opened. The first time it flowered, the flower faded after just a few days, this time each has lasted more than a month, even the one with the broken stalk stayed despite the damage.

    Does anyone know who originated this hybrid? Are there other clones that exhibit different characteristics? I believe this clone should be considered/registered as a cultivar.

    Jim, if you are reffering to the plant I sent you, it's a Pinguicula laueana x Pinguicula emarginata (?). The parent plants names are in the reverse order of PinguiculaMan's. However, considering how easy it is for names to get switched on tags, especially by those who don't realize that it can make a difference as to which plant was the seed plant and which plant was the pollen donor, it is possible that these are the same as the plants PinguiculaMan is talking about. His description of the flowers sounds similar to mine and matches my experience with trying to capture it on a digital camara. I posted some pics of it back in February here: Pinguicula laueana x Pinguicula emarginata (?). There are 10 pics of different pings in the topic, so if you're on dial up it, might be slow loading. As you can see, the pics don't match the description given further down in the topic.

    I consider myself educated! * Sounds like another 'Gina' vs. 'Tina' thing.

    I think I'll stay out of the P. moranensis 'Huautla' topic!

    Subject title corrected, I originally had the parent order reversed, oops.

    Here are the requested photographs.
