    Fake P. 'Weser'

    My first Pinguicula to flower this year is the fake P. 'Weser' (Pinguicula moranensis x ehlersiae)

    Given just the cultivar description it is easy to see how this might be passed of as the real thing:

    It's too bad that it has to be referred to as "fake weser". Makes it sound so rhinestone. Nevertheless, it's a hardy cross and gives us nice looking flowers, such as yours.

    Here's a 2 year old picture of what came to me as P. moranensis huatla x ehleresiae:

    BTW, D. capillaris has three scapes going!

    None of the fake/false/garden centre P. 'Weser' plants that I have seen actually look much like the proper P. 'Weser'. To me, they all look more similar to P. 'Sethos'.
