    Yeah it does kinda look a little orangey. I think I like them better this way. :P

    And yeah red is a nice change from all the purples and pinks and whatnot.

    I love it. I wonder if you could breed it with others to create pale orange flower shades. Even peach. That would be interesting.
    that makes no logic

    I have a cross with it and the tiny, pale flowered Piniguicula emarginata and that one has flowers that are so dark purple, they look nearly black. I just swapped pollen with Pinguicula hemiepiphytica and a few others. Of course, I could only put one kind of pollen to the Pinguicula laueana flower, but I used some of its pollen on several other species. Time will tell if any viable seed is produced, and then what kind of plants those hybrids create.

    Exiting stuff man, I for one would be very interested in how that turns out, just for curiosity’s sake. Perhaps later I will even try pings again (my first one died before its first winter). That would be an exciting species to experiment with, even though I prefer attractive plants to flowers in pings.

    Gorgeous plant and flowers , Joseph.
    Congrats on the blooming . Good luck on the cross.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.
