    I am not sure if the plants at Longwood are mislabeled or if this plant was mislabeled by growers, but it looks exactly like my 'Sethos' in all aspects. I also grow the true moranensis var. caudata from Slack's nursery and the leaves are nowhere near as red as the leaves on the "moranensis var. caudata-Longwood Garden" when grown side by side.

    Well, I hope we figure out exactly what the LACPS Longwood is - because I just cross-pollinated it with esseriana...I'd like to find out what it is if the seed set is fertile because I'll likely start distributing it at meetings.

    That's a good question larry.

    I have an even better one though...why did the "longwood" clone you sent me a while back form hibernacula before dying off? :P

    Larry...that's not purple. Looks BLUE to me! lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Actually it wasn't blue either. That is the fault of my camera. One reason I'm dying for a new camera is that it can't reproduce certain shades of red, blue and pink accurately...purples look blue, blues look purple, pinks look red, etc. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Forbes...I will try to post a pic of the flowers. Another reason I want a new camera is that I can't get sharp close ups. It produced two flowers at the same time and was really pretty. I shot it a hundred times and not not one decent photo of the flowers. But I'll look at them again and see if I can fine one that is clear enough for any comparison. It seems my ping doesn't look like anybody elses. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] However, I thought it was quite a handsome plant. Would love to get a positive ID if possible. The flowers did not have a straight spur like the one pictured above. It was curved forward in a hook. I think you can see that in my photos.

    These sure are some beautiful ping photos and plants. People don't give pings their due respect. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    PAK,

    Ever think it's just your light sources on the photos?
