Last autumn I received some seed labelled; Pinguicula pumila 'Pasco Giant'. Of several growers I know who also had this seed, I am the only one, to my knowledge, that managed to germinate and grow it. Of the two seeds that I managed to germinate, one has now reached it's full glory.
Whilst the plant is a tiny jewel, the flower is only 9mm across and the rosette has a diameter of 16mm, I'm fairly sure that it is not the 'Pasco Giant' form of this species. I'm in love with it anyway [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img], 'Vic's favorite CP of the week'!
Does any one have any experience with pollinating this short-lived species? With only one option, to self it, I wonder if anyone knows if this is likely to be sucessful? I am always on the look out for fresh seeds of S.E. USA Pings, and can usually offer something of equal rarity in exchange. Currently, seed of P. caerulea and other forms of Pinguicula pumila are high on my seed wish-list.
