    NEW Pinguicula hybrid...

    Hello Friends,

    Well, after a year and a half of waiting and keeping my fingers crossed, I'm pleased to introduce to you my new Pinguicula hybrid; P. macrophylla X P. AnPa D. or soon to be called "P. X Cherri Baby"

    And....here she is!



    And for the sake of easy comparison, here's the parents in smaller photo size;

    The flower of P. AnPa D;



    Here's the leaves and rosette of P. AnPa D. Notice the dark reddish "cherry" tint;


    Next, introducing P. macrophylla;



    Leaves and rosette of P. macrophylla;


    And last but not least, The leaves, flowers and rosette of the hybrid! The "cherry" tint to the leaves is passed from the P. AnPa D parent. Also, both parental traits are clearly visable in the hybrid's flower and leaf shape...





    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    I like it!

    If my P. macrophylla looked liked that, I'd be really content.

    Very nice hybrid! I have been unsuccessful every time I have tried to pollinate Pinguicula. I'm not sure if it's due to the age of the flower or if I simply don't know where to put the pollen (perhaps both?). I've looked around on the internet for images and explanations on how to pollinate; it seems like the pictures I've found of the petals removed to show the parts just don't look like my flowers with same petals removed. Do you think you could maybe explain this process to me, or maybe show a detailed picture on where the pollen is supposed to go?

    Thanks,
    Crystal
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Crystal, which species have you tried to cross? The locations of the 'bits' can differ a little!

    Hey Jim,

    So I've seen. I've tried crossing P. gypsicola with P. moctezumae, selfing P. moctezumae, Crossing P. x Titan with P. weser. They just don't like me .
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?

    And when will we learn to control?
