    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 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.

    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. 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.

    PAK,

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