    Has anyone produced viable seeds by selfing mexican ping species? Does anyone know if P.sharpii is able to self seed? This one resembles P.lusitanica found in Europe.

    Personally, I have tried selfing gypsicola and cyclosecta with no luck.

    Of the Mexican Pings, so far I have obtained viable seed by selfing: P. gigantea and P. moranensis x ehlersiae

    Hi Eric,

    Were the seeds viable?

    Hi Joseph,

    I will have to try this with my gigantea once it makes another flower.

    Hi,
    off topic, sorry
    I have a Pinguicula gigantea 'alba' X moctezumae and a Pinguicula moranensis 'Ayautla' about to flower at the same time, could I cross them and they will make viable seeds or is it like the Drosera genara that you can't cross a hybrid with others hybrid or species
    regards Bjørn

    You can cross them, but I am unsure if viable seeds will be produced. Sometimes it does not work.

    I've tried a few complex crosses, like that which Bjorn is proposing, they have all been successful so far. For example, I noticed P. gigantea x (laueana x emarginata) sprouting today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] (two of the same species in the mix). Give it a go.

    I unintentionally selfed P. moctezumae once (it was supposed to be a hybrid with cyclosecta&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. The seed had high viability and grew into lots of healthy plants, which look just like their Mum!

    I don't know yet if these seeds are viable or not. This is this year's seeds. All past seeds went to in-vitro in Australia and give birth to many new plants clearly identified.
