    Pinguicula emarginata

    I'd been growing this species (Pinguicula emarginata) for several years, having a large population of them, all derived from a single original plant.

    I enjoy this species, one of the homophyllous growth types, and one that doesn't do well unless kept continuously moist, more like the Pinguicula of the S.E. U.S.A.

    The only clone I was currently growing, had all-green leaves, and pale, nearly all-white flowers, with a few bluish/lavender veins. Then I received a plant of the clone illustrated in the pic below -> WOW!

    The plant in the pic is planted in all-mineral media, primarily APS/silica sand. It is in a 2" plastic pot.

    Is anyone else growing forms of this species that show a variety of color and habit?

    Beautiful plant. Love seeing the flowers. The few times I have had this species it was either mislabeled or died out.

    Jim,
    The flower on this clone was overall medium blue color, with darker blue veins. I think I might have a pic of it somewhere. I"m continuing to search through my archives, which are somewhat disorganized. If I can find it, I will add it here. Though there are similar flowers linked at the CP Photo Finder - one is here. Though I think it was even a little darker than that one.

    Years ago, I saw a pic from someone (I cannot remember who), the plant had an almost solid dark blue flower, with just a hint of veins. I really would like to have a clone of that, someday.

    Despite my propensity for keeping my Mexican/equatorial Pinguicula perpetually wet, I do sometimes let them get somewhat drier than I'd like. I've lost some of this species when I unintentionally let that happen to them.

    Ah, this is one of my favorite pinguicula! The colors on your plant are amazing!

    I had one a long time ago, but I didn't realize it liked to be kept wet. When it started declining, I kept it drier and unsurprisingly, it died!
