    Why Victor's Victory you goose, what else? Of course if you want to immortalize me, feel free. Frankly, I believe you deserve the honor, hee hee. I am reluctant to distribute this knockout beauty unregistered for fear of driving other's like Fernando crazy in years to come. Once this starts getting about, everyone is going to have to have it: it is simply the most beautiful hybrid I have ever seen!

    The last cultivar I submitted was accepted by the CPN for publication. It took all of 5 mins. (!) to write a short description and submit the photo. The CPN takes about a year from article submission to publication, so don't keep the world waiting too long. Once you give it a name, even in potential, I will begin to send these gems out to others under that name.

    Vic, please register it!! Its a beauty! (And beautiful plant and photo, Mr. Dawnstar. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    OK...I want it! You must get it registered and into production so folks like me can get one. Its just lovely! Like Tamlin said, better to register, then distribute so it has an identifying name to go with with it.

    I kinda like 'Victor/Victoria'...a tribute to its creator plus a feminine name for its stunning beauty.

    Thanks for the pics. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm with Suzanne, Vic. Hurry and register it so I can start pestering Tamlin for it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] . It's too pretty to let it go by the wayside for lack of a proper name.

    Vic,

    I am at an utter loss for words. In all honesty all I can come up with is "Wow". I extend my deepest respect and thanks for this creation.

    Thanks for the kind words, I've been quite busy recently, mainly getting plants ready for Chelsea flower show, where I provide the mexican Pings for the UK based CPS, so haven't visited Terra Forums much recently. If you like my P. laueana x emarginata, what do you all think of this one?

    Pinguicula potosiensis x moctezumae Vic's Cross



    Like all crosses with P. moctezumae, such as P. 'Aphrodite', the foliage is long and strap-shaped in summer. My cross has very large flowers, about 1 1/2 inches tall, which have inherited the wavy edge, from the seed parent P. potosiensis. I've grown about ten of this cross to flowering size and this clone is by far the most vigorous, free-flowering and beautiful. In my view a better candidate for my first cultivar. At the moment this plant is on show at Chelsea Flower Show in London, where it has received many favourable comments.

    Wow, amazing pics dude. How'd you cross them? Usual cross pollination I suppose...noooo by the time I'm a professional (which I can even visualise right now), there'll be no more cps to, uhm, hybridize. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Or maybe I can make a hybrid of a hybrid, or something like that... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Wow, purple pings are really cool, but I also like green, seems more 'plantlike'... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
