    Unless the pictures themselves aren't accurate (which I doubt), the garden variety really pales in comparison.

    Thanks for the clarifing pics.
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    That Pinguicula 'Weser' flower is beautiful. Very bright and colorful. What is the parentage of Pinguicula 'Weser'?

    The parents of Pinguicula 'Weser' are published to be: (Pinguicula moranensis x Pinguicula ehlersiae), though not all plants derived from these parents are Pinguicula 'Weser'. Doing so is an all too common mistake, which may be responsible for the many forms of what are called (Garden Center 'Weser').

    Of course. Thanks for the follow-up. Another question: With cultivars of Pinguicula, is one outstanding one selected and then it is just propagated through leaf pullings and divisions to keep the one Pinguicula 'Weser' genetically identical?

    We almost need certificates of authenticity (lol) for some cultivars as there are lots in circulation that are simply crosses between the same parents but do not have the same genetic traits.

    One thing to consider, from a genetic perspective, is that while you may have two parent plants, with the same gametes doing the contributing, the genotype is going to be slightly different, thus producing a slightly different phenotype. That was illustrated by having S. psitticina cultivars that look slightly different from one another. It's kinda like looking at a tank full of Metallic Blue guppies. You can ccfind slight differences, in spite of the inbreeding!
