    If you self-pollinate your P. x 'Weser' you will not get seeds which produce plants identical to it. This is because it is an hybrid and when selfed, the seed will produce plants which will probably more closely resemble one of it's two parents (P. moranensis and P. elhersae) than itself.

    If you want to propagate more P. x 'Weser' it is necessary to do this vegetatively, by leaf cuttings, as this will produce plants genetically identical to the parent plant. Seed will not produce more P. x 'Weser'.

    If you still want to produce seeds from this plant, use a cocktail stick or fine paintbrush and insert this into a flower, poke about behind the stigma (this is the small apron-like pad on the upper surface of the throat of the flower). When you have picked up some pollen (yellow powder) dab this onto the stigma. Wait a few weeks, whilst the petals fall off and a seed pod forms and swells. When the seed pod turns brown and splits, shake it over white paper/card there are the seeds.

    In my opinion you are likely to produce more interesting and more vigorous offspring by crossing your P. x 'Weser' with another Mexican Ping, either a species or another hybrid.

    I self-pollinated my P. 'Weser' (actually turned out to be P. 'Sethos') (moved some pollen from the anthers to the stigma) and the seed developed in a few months, they have grown quite well and, just as Vic suggested this F2 generation are segregating. There are some that look more like one parent than the other and vice versa. But they all are quite beautiful. I am hoping that one or more will stand out from the crowd.

    Turns out that what I thought was Pinguicula 'Weser' was actually Pinguicula 'Sethos', however, they are "sister" plants and their F2 offspring should be quite similar.

    Here is a photo of some F2 plants blooming:

    Holy cow Joseph! How do you DO that? They are beautiful!

    Hopefully this season all my baby plantlets will grow into something...I can't even hope for anything that nice looking!
