    Pinguicula reticulata (long time dry)

    Here is a recent photograph of Pinguicula reticulata after having been dry for, at least, sixteen months:


    These little red ones certainly look very much like Pinguicula immaculata.

    Curious that of the hundred or so plants I had of this species, most perished, and only this pot had plants of this appearance. All the other survivors of this species look like this:

    All my plants of this species are divisions from one original plant.

    I will let you know after I compare the media. I can't imagine anything else is affecting this difference. Usually light has the greatest effect, but since they've all been so dry, light has not had much affect on coloration.

    Were all of those in that pot from pullings from the same plant?

    Every plant of Pinguicula reticulata that I have had and presently do have in my collection comes from one original plant. I have propagated, sold, and traded approximately several hundred plants, so far. So, yes, all of the plants in these photographs are the same clone.
