    Flowering Ping

    Hello all,
    I finally got another of my Mexican Pinguicula to flower (the first being the rather common 'Aphrodite', of which I don't have a pic, unfortunately), so I decided to share. I received this plant as P. moranensis x ehlersiae (possibly 'Weser', but not likely), so I want to know if you agree. The camera I use could not capture the true colors of this thing, by the way, as it is a very vibrant, bright violet.




    Cheers!

    Nice flower man !

    I have to try crossing ehlersiae and moranensis.

    Im stunned right now, my DORMANT p.rectifolia push me 3 flowers at the same time. I dont know if this is normal or im doing someting wrong.

    Anyway, once again, good job with this plant

    From what I've heard, different species flower at different times. My 'Aphrodite' flowers in the middle of summer, while we're hitting winter here and this one is up. Some do flower only during dormancy.
    And thanks on the compliments! It's sending up a second, and there will be a third soon...

    If those are bloodworms, they are likely the reason why your plant flowered. My Mexican hybrids flower right after being fed. And after flowering, the single large plant divides itself too....which makes me want to feed them all the time. LOL

    I feed all my pings bloodworms and diluted Maxsea fertilizer every couple of weeks. Of course, most aren't big enough to flower yet, but they're getting there.

    Decided to add a couple more pics, since the plant sent up the next flower: and it's a mutant!
    First, new pic of the normal one:

    And now the mutant:
