    Pinguicula primuliflora Seedling Flowering

    While going through my seedlings a noticed an odd looking Pinguicula primuliflora seedling and on closer inspection I realized it was sending up a flower! The seedling is only 1/2 a centimeter in diameter too!





    Has anyone else ever had this occur?

    I will post an update if the flower opens.

    My P. primuiflora used to flower all the time, plantlets especially.

    For some reason I can't grow these. I had 4 earlier this year but all of them died. Strange. I grow Moranensis and Agnata just fine but these seem "tricky"!

    Max: Seedling... as in from seeds... as opposed to a plantlet formed from a leaf?

    Tommy: This species kinda enigmatic, not unlike D. adelae, even though you have a great handle on the sundew.

    Jim - they are from seed, I think a flower on one of my plants was pollinated and the seed got spread around my collection because I have a bunch of these little guys popping up in neighbooring pots, and P. primuliflora is the only temperate ping I grow so I dont know what elsle it could be.
