    It was bought labeled as Pinguicula lutea, obviously it is not. It seams closer to Pinguicula caerulea . Anyone wanna dissagree with that? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] i polinated these with eachother and the flowers faded away within 12 hrs. so i think they took. (begins to pray) hehe. well here they are.


    and the next one wasn't fully open at the time of the picture.

    Later, [I]

    Andrew,

    Were these two separate plants?

    Of course, Pinguicula caerulea, caerulea = blue. Digital images are such a nice way to share our plants with each other

    Nice contrast to the yellow of Pinguicula lutea, lutea = yellow.
