    Crossed this:
    P. esseriana by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    And this:
    P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    With this:
    P. sp. Yucca do 1717 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    P. sp. Yucca do 1717 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    P. sp. Yucca do 1717 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    Really hoping the crosses take this time as every other hybrid attempt I've made has failed. I am also realizing now that the sp. 1717 looks a whole lot like cyclosecta, but with some differences in leaf shape (not much in color though).
    Also took a bunch of pullings to save my ehlersiae, and now I have more plantlets than I know what to do with....

    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.

    No photos this time, but an important update: I just found sprouts of my first successful cross: P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' x esseriana! The moranensis x sp. Yucca do 1717 haven't done anything yet, but not giving up on them...

    So nothing came of crosses with sp. Yucca do 1717, but P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' x esseriana took and has germinated...

    No flowers this round, but dormant pings always look cool
    P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    P. sp. Yucca do 1717 by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    As do the ones that never sleep
    P. rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    P. 'Aphrodite' by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    And apparently, I never posted any progress updates here on my first hybrid; here it is, growing very well and already looking promising (3 different seedlings here)
    P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' x esseriana by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    My primul trio are also doing well

    P. primuliflora typical by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    P. primuliflora "white flower, Blackwater FL" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    And lastly, though I finally have some healthy plants in the pot they're meant to be, the lusitanica underneath my N. rajah x jacq are still the best looking

    It would appear a cross between rotund x hemi and esseriana won't be possible, but they're still blooming...

    This one's preparing to bloom, so flower pics may return in the next round

    Only one photo this month, the largest of my white primroses (still waiting on blooms)
    P. primuliflora "white flower, Blackwater St. Pk. FL" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

    But, a bit of news: crossed P. sp. Yucca do 1717 x esseriana and the reverse, and this time got seeds both ways! Now praying they'll sprout and give something of note

    How do you apply maxsea to your pings? Spray? Drop?
    Also how do you germinate the seeds?

    Generally, I don't give Maxsea to Pinguicula, but when I do it's the same pipette dropper that I use for everything else. And seeds are just sown on soil and kept moist; as I've only had one set of seeds actually germinate thus far (where the Mexican species are concerned, and very few sets attempted either) can't say I have info on a "best option" for that.
