    Enough of a detour. Sure, there are several hybrid Mexican/equatorial Pinguicula plants that have been crossed with species and with other hybrids to produce complex hybrids. Hopefully there will continue to be more.

    dvg is doing excellent work, first in learning to cultivate some difficult species of Pinguicula, very well. Second by creating various hybrids with them, that are also progressing to maturity. The selection of such a highly pigmented Pinguicula agnata, should help the seedlings to stand out, if they inherit that characteristic. I anxiously await the continued results of these endeavors. I greatly appreciate dvg's willingness to share these efforts with the rest of us.

    I've always wondered at butterworts with such bold, dark colors. I've been considering all-mineral media for awhile but I think it is about time to give it a try.

    Thanks guys,

    Here are a few pics of one of these P. agnata x heterophylla, from back in early August, 2014.









    Since then, this P. agnata x heterophylla eventually had its watering withheld and consequently shrunk back to smaller leaves.

    Once watering was resumed after a few week's time, it resumed active growth again, making larger leaves and a flower.



    Couple flower pics from yesterday.

    What a gloopy flower stalk. That's awesome!!

    I don't understand why I love things that are glistening and gloopy like that. But I do. I think it's ridiculously beautiful.
