    Well...it just flowered again last week and this time the stalk is way up above the plant...same conditions...so it's doing it because it wants too.

    It seems like the first flowers of the season are on short stalks, then later the stalks become longer. If I were Darwin, perhaps I'd expect to find two different pollinators, one for each length of flower stalk.

    And too, I believe I only have one clone of this species -- I don't know if more than one clone exists in cultivation, but I certainly hope so, and if so I hope someday to obtain other clones, to compare them with each other. I do have two clones of Pinguicula rotundiflora, one clone always produces flowers with a particular defect, and the other clone always produces perfectly formed flowers.

    In my case the flowers were produced by the same clone in 2 very distinct ways...it must be something in the growing conditions i believe. That was the first one of the season...i will see next year if it will happen again.
