    That is a gorgeous set of plants! You certainly hit gold with some of those crosses.
    Out of curiosity, this is slightly off topic, but has anyone had success crossing hybrids, or just species?
    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.

    I've successfully self-pollinated the cultivar Pinguicula 'Sethos', which is a selection from the hybrid (Pinguicula ehlersiae x Pinguicula moranensis). Apparently others have successfully crossed P. 'Sethos' (a hybrid), with several different species. I've grown one clone of the cross, (P. 'Sethos' x P. gypsicola), its appearance certainly gave the impression that it was truly such a hybrid. This clone's flower clearly resembles the seed parent. See ->


    If you check out the Pinguicula section of the CP Photo Finder, you will see several others, as well as many primary hybrids (hybrids between species) listed there.

    It's inspiring to see growers doing such an excellent job caring for their plants, so they are close to their full potential. Also, developing hybrids, this can help us better understand these amazing plants.

    Here are some later plants of this hybrid clone, produced in 2006 via leaf-pullings ->




    Initially I grew this clone in straight peat moss, with the same lighting, temperature, and watering (see pic in post before this one). It was quite pale. I believe the darker colors in the leaves are primarily due to being planted in all-mineral media (mostly APS), and having a little iron oxide powder added to the media.
