    So much excitement about my sethos flower, its pollination and its seed pod...

    Then the seed pod dried and opened up...EMPTY! CANNOT believe it!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    But...the plant has since developed another growth point and ANOTHER FLOWER IS COMING UP!!! WOW! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Joseph "Pingman" once said that some types don't self pollinate well. Hopefully this is not going to happen to you. I think he said primuliflora didn't self well.

    I had this happen and the reality of it was that the pod had actually split while still green and dropped the seed in the mother plant's pot. I am finding this to be the case with almost all my Mexi-Pings, the pod splits while green and all the seeds pour out before you even know what is going on.

    When I self-pollinate P. 'Sethos' I often have the same experience. It is even repeated many times when crossing the various Mexican/Tropical pings.

    And as Tim said, I often have trouble selfing Pinguicula planifolia and Pinguicula primuliflora also. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
