    What's the difference between P. 'Weser' and, P. moranensis (Huautla) x ehlersiae?

    They both have the moransensi x ehlersiae in their name. Are they the same thing or different?

    P. moranensis (huautla) x ehlersiae

    P. moranensis (huautla) x ehlersiae (2007)

    P. 'Weser'

    Sorry, no flowers for P. 'Weser'





    I just received this plant on Wednesday, after being in the mail for 2 days. Incredibly, this flower continues to grow.

    The difference is that the cultivar P. 'Weser' are clones of one specific plant from a cross of P. moranensis and P. ehlersiae chosen for its unique and distinctive flower. The same goes for P. 'Sethos'.

    I don't know if P. 'Sethos' and P. 'Weser' are offspring from the same parent plants but it is possible.

    P. 'Sethos' & P. 'Weser' are the same parents, but opposite gender contributing gametes. Know what I mean? What does the huautla refer to? Is it the same as 'Weser'?

    Both 'Weser' and 'Sethos' are registered cultivars and the difference is in the flower. Most plants being grown as P. 'Weser' clearly do not meet the cultivar definition:
    "Of these (hybrids) I would mention [Pinguicula ' Sethos ' {Hort.Slack}] ([[Pinguicula moranensis {H.B.K.}] * [Pinguicula ehlersiae {Speta & Fuchs}]]), a fine, very floriferous clone with large orchid-purple flowers with a many-rayed mouth like a white star; [Pinguicula ' Weser ' {Hort.Slack}], of the same parentage and with rather similar flowers, has a solitary white streak down the central lower lobe and dark veins."

    For a scan of Slack's original article, see

    I believe that "huautla" is a location.

    Correct, it is a location in Mexico where there is a population of P. moranensis
