    Just about doubled the number of Pinguicula I grow thanks to a generous grower. One of them is a plant I had a few years ago and lost due to unknown reasons

    Not sure if this one will flower or not

    Multiple flowers coming out of this one too. And when the first opened, it became my favorite

    Also crossed this new one with the new moranensis, and things already look promising for making a new version of this common hybrid

    This one is already settled too, and growing. Can't wait for the flowers...

    Well, much like my P. primuliflora "white flower" and my grandiflora, the primul 'Rose' is suffering from some sort of mysterious wilt. I am scattering the budded leaves elsewhere to see if I can just keep it going (that's how I kept "white flower" around along with my normal form), but any ideas what causes sudden wilting or the roots to rot? Both seem to be separate issues.....

    In other news, a couple pics:

    Leaf pullings were successful on this guy, so I now have multiples! Yay!

    So, I am suspicious of my 'Pirouette' and the moranensis ehlersiae plants I have; both have near identical growth patterns and flowers. I would like to think the person I got the 'Pirouette' from knows his stuff, having grown lots of pings, but does this mean then that I've had that cultivar for years now?

    Meanwhile, some pics:

    I find these adorable...

    Mutant flower

    Also, I have harvested what should be the following seeds: pure P. ehlersiae, ehlersiae x moranensis 'Huahuapan', and moranensis 'Huahuapan' x (rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica). Now I just need the space to sow them....

    That's a nice flower. I love the mutant one too. If you pollinate that mutant flower will it result in offspring that have six petals instead? I'd like to cross my cyclosecta and koehres together to make some nice dark blue/violet flowers. (the link images are not my flowers, just examples of the flowers mine are supposed to make).

    One mutant flower is the result of funky issues with production of the corolla. It won't affect the seeds produced, and if it did, this is a mutant with fewer petals so it wouldn't increase the normal number. Also, you'll find that those pics are a bit off concerning real color. Both plants from what I've seen tend to sit well within the standard violet range.

    This plant has no interest in halting flowering

    For some reason, the typical is my only primrose doing well

    Anyone have ideas on how to bring back the "white flower" and 'Rose'? I repot, I remove dead leaves, I dust with sulfur and spray with neem, and the old leaves rot and take the roots with them, followed by wilting plants....

    A new flower for me, and this is by far the deepest purple ping flower I've yet seen. I have attempted a cross with the moranensis, hopefully for once my efforts will turn out...

    Also, the typical primul is budding again..

    And the "white flower is returning, albeit not in the pot it was supposed to reside in, go figure...

    The 'Rose' is of a similar story: while I have managed to get one growing in the correct pot again, the current healthiest plants share a pot with the N. burb x rob
