    Homemade Mexi-ping crosses

    Last year when some of my Mexi-pings were flowering I took the time to cross pollinate a few of those flowers.

    One of the plants in flower was this seed grown P. agnata.



    And its flower



    It was crossed with this P. colimensis.



    And its flower



    These were the resulting P. colimensis x agnata seedlings with P. colimensis used as the mother. Sown July 28, 2013



    And the reverse cross - P. agnata x colimensis with the P. agnata mother providing a bit of color to her seedlings. Sown July 28, 2013



    Next up are some crosses made with P. heterophylla used as the father/pollen donor.



    And its flower



    P. colimensis x heterophylla still in its bulb-like form. Sown August 7, 2013



    P. moranensis x heterophylla with the top seedling just coming out of its bulb, while the lower seedling resumes active growth from a succulent stage that didn't involve retreating back to a bulb. Sown August 15, 2013



    P. agnata x heterophylla was the easiest of the three P. heterophylla crosses to keep growing without entering into a succulent form and it doesn't form a bulb. Sown September 4, 2013



    All of the above crosses were allowed to dry out for some time and are now being revived with more moisture and hopefully after a few feedings will be growing well again for me.

    Thanks Salgadoxx8, that agnata also has a nicely scented flower.

    It was grown from seed by way of BCP.

    You have incredible plants! I've never been able to hand pollinate pings, even though, technically, I know how. What is BCP?

    Thank you JimScott, BCP refers to Best Carnivorous Plants from the Czech Republic.

    It will be interesting to see what the flowers look like.

    Yes BobZ, but the flowers will have to wait until these mexi-pings come out of their second rest period.

    These mexi-pings were coming out of dormancy/succulent mode, when they were first shown back in early June, and now some of them are getting ready to return to another seasonal respite.

    P. colimensis x agnata in a 4" pot.


    And the reverse cross, P. agnata x colimensis, in a 3" pot.


    Now, the P. heterophylla crosses:

    P. moranensis x heterophylla


    P. agnata x heterophylla, in a 4" pot.


    Another seedling of the same cross, P. agnata x heterophylla, outdoors,


    and the same plant above, shot indoors with the resolution cranked up.


    And finally, P. colimensis x heterophylla, a plant I had pretty much given up on, as it stayed in dormancy for so long,

    only just recently, throwing out its first few leaves.
