    What the heck is a Pinguicula Conantha?

    Ok, so I ordered some seeds from a carnivorous plant nursery. I ordered them about two weeks ago, and they arrived last week. I ordered Byblis seeds and Pinguicula Caerulea seeds. However, when the seeds arrived, the packet of Pinguicula seeds said "Pinguicula Conantha". I figured it was just a typo. I just checked the site a minute ago and now it says they are Pinguicula Conantha (Temperature) seeds.


    What the heck is this species? I've never heard of it.

    I looked it up, and there is no conantha. There is, however, a P. ionantha.

    I just emailed the nursery asking what seeds were sent to me and explained that Conantha doesn't exist.

    I'm a little perturbed if the nursery sent me the wrong seeds. I asked for Caerulea seeds, not "Conantha" seeds.

    So they sent you seeds, you don't know what they are, they say that such plants don't exist, yet there they are on their catalog...

    I believed it was that Wolfn explained that conantha doesn't exist.

    Yes. It says on the nursery site that they are Pinguicula Conantha seeds. I just sent them an email saying that Pinguicula Conantha doesn't exist.

    Maybe a typo due to the mixing of "caerulea" and "ionantha"?

    Its a large, extremely robust Ping originally found only in the mountainous regions of Cimmeria. Known for its strong mucilage, and it's ability to handle large, powerful prey.
