    Sun damage in all probability. I've seen the full reaction delayed. I took some out of sun because they weren't liking it, then they did this days later. I'd say sun/humidity.

    Unfortunately it looks like sun damage to me too. I'm so sorry Jim!! Do you think the majority will pull though? PM me, I might be able to help you out with some of the losses.

    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?

    Oh, that's nothing. An entire collection of pinguicula?

    The SAME exact thing happened to my u. nelumbifolia :gong: It was sending up two flower stalks...they were about to open...I could see the purple of the first flower unfolding...and then they died back to the soil. They died off completely...more like an animal than a plant...nothing left.

    Now that was a loss

    Seriously, Jim, I'm very sorry. I'm glad you had some backups it seemed, but yes, no p. gigantea trade. If anything, I'll be sending my material to you. Let me know. I have a pic of the flower. (Such a shame. Those P. gigantea were so awesome. They might pull through from the picture though )

    Thanks, Crystal & Ian! I updated my grow list, based upon what I saved out, as well as what's recovering:

    PINGUICULA:


    agnata
    'Aphrodite' (agnata x moctezumae)
    ehleresiae – Crystal Morgan
    esseriana
    'Florian' (debbertiana x eseriana)
    gigantea
    huahuapan
    jaumviensis - Warren Auyong
    John Rizzi - Mark Wilson
    laueana (Clemens "Red #1") - Bob Zeimer
    macrophylla – Crystal Morgan
    'Pirouette' (agnata x moranensis x ehleresiae)
    moctezumae - Candice
    'Sethos' (ehleresaie x moranensis)
    'Weser' - Joseph Clemens (moranensis x ehleresiae)
    1717 *

    PING CROSSES

    emarginata x cyclosecta - Crystal Morgan
    gigantea x moctezumae – Crystal Morgan
    gracilis x moctezumae – Jrod
    gypsicola x kohres – Jrod
    lauenea x emarginata
    moctezumae x kohres
    moranensis x hautla x ehleresiae – Crystal Morgan

    What really stings was that I lost the colimensis that I promised to Amphirion, as well as the gracilis and emarginata. Still trying get a gypsicola...

    I believe you sent me P. colimensis with our last trade. I believe it's still pretty small though. Rain check on that one and P. emarginata (newly received). I can help with the P. gracilis and P. gypsicola. I'll look and see what I have, I may be able to fill in a few other gaps as well. How do you feel about Mexi Ping seeds? I just collected some though I didn't write down what the exact cross is. I only know the one parent plant.

    Hmmm, didn't realize your Pinguicula collection had downsized so. Time to send you back some more stuff.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    All that sounds great! I never actually started Mexi-pings from seeds. I have had zero luck / skill with hand-pollination. I'd be happy to pay postage.
