    The developing flowers showing a bit more growth,



    emerging from their onion-like bulbs.

    This bulb is content to just shoot a single flower skyward,



    while this one, maybe more ambitious, has not only fired its first flower up,



    but has another in the chamber, locked and loaded.

    These are weird but really cool. Are the onion bulbs unique to this species?

    No, species like medusina and a couple others do it also.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Bonjour

    very very nice DVG

    onion and hibernaculae is not the same thing , the first and the "winter" roset ( sometimes a hibernaculae) for the dry season in mexican country , the second for the winter , cold season for some temperate pinguicula.

    heterophylla-sp tonala-medusinae have this onion.

    Another update of the plants in flower.



    The smaller plant is still not sending up any leaves yet, but i have managed to get pollen onto both flower's pollen flaps.



    A flower about to open and an unlucky spider that happened upon the sticky flower stalk next to it.

    The plant on the left is starting to roll out the first of the long narrow slender type leaves that it is known for.

    That will probably signal an end to flowering for this bulb/plant, this go-round.



    The plant on the right is sending up its second flower while a pollinated seedpod hovers above it.

    Meanwhile up above, another flower opens next to another pollinated seedpod - fingers crossed,



    really hoping for some viable seed.
