Quite so: Even if Pyro has a plant vegetatively propagated from Mr. Slack's original Pinguicula 'Weser', there is no guarantee that it will be true to the original standard photo or written description as published by Mr. Slack. Most vegetatively propagated Pinguicula clones originate from a cell or group of cells that grow into a vegetative bud (adventitious bud) on the leaf severed from the parent plant and usually (though not always) the genetic compliment inherited by this propagule is identical to the parent plant (at least close enough to have the phenotype(1) appear identical), but if there were damage to the genetic material in the original cell from which the adventitious bud developed that then develops into this propagule and would then express those differences. In other words, it may not be identical to the parent plant.Originally Posted by [b
