    Hey PAK,
    You've got PS skillz - it's not deception if the flower really is a certain color and you need to change it in software to match!

    The person who gave the person who distributes the "LACPS Longwood" clone the original plant from which this confusion emanates, said when asked about the origins of the plants (this was a while ago) that they come from seed produced by pollinating a plant from Longwood with some other ping. He couldn't remember at the time. Longwood Gardens may or may not have a misidentified 'caudata,' but I'm fairly certain the plant I photographed has genes from some other location too.

    Nearly everyone who has attended an LACPS meeting has come away with one of these plants, so at least half the people who have posted on this thread probably grow the thing.

    At any rate, PAK's plant doesn't look anything like the LACPS material to my eye, and William's plant looks a little different too.

    PAK,
    If you propagate your whatever-it-may-be, I'd love to trade.

    True, so true Michelle. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] However any color correction you do applies to the entire image therefore changing the color of the plant which was pretty accurate. It was a very fleshy pinkish red color. If you really want to do that, you can select a specific area to correct but you have to be pretty accurate in selecting all the areas you want to change and not get areas you don't. Which is a pain.

    Sure Forbes... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I'd like to propagate this one. It grew pretty fast and I'll be interested to see what it does this year.

    Here are two poor photos of the flowers. The color is more accurate with the flowers although one was more exposed to light than the other. The plant color is off a bit.

    Whatcha think? Well, PAK, I think your plant is gorgeous. Whether you identify it or not, growing one that has got to be a pleasure!

    Well thank you Bug. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Yes, it is a pleasure. To date, my largest and prettiest ping. I like it a lot. It would just be helpful to have an accurate ID for distributing it once I get some babies going.

    Hey PAK,

    Couldn't you just create a mask of the flower and adjust the coloring like that? It shouldn't really effect the rest of the colors unless you're using a limited palette, which seems silly.

    Yeah, I could. I guess my point is...I'd rather have a camera that can record the color correctly than to have to go through all that extra hassle tweaking on different spots of a photo (or 20 photos!) to make it look right. Supposed it was a photo of an oncidium in bloom and the flower color was off? I ain't gonna mask 30 flowers and color correct each one. lol :P

    Of course, I gotta find the money for the camera first. Til then, I'll have to live with incorrect color and blurry close ups and tweak 'em as best I can. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Don't get me wrong...its been a great little camera and I've taken some good photos with it. But I just need something better now as all the constant "tweaking" takes too much time.

    Okay, here's the scoop - don't know why they called me Mister though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Dear Mr. Yeung

    Thank you for your interest in what is very likely on of the plants Longwood distributed in the past. Here is the information I was able to gather from our records:

    We received it (1 plant) on May 15, 1958 through plant exchange from Mr. Marcel Lecoufle in France (Orchidees-Anthurium-Caladium-Plantes de Collection, 1 Rue de l'Eglise, Boissy-Saint-Leger)

    It was received as Pinguicula caudata, later the name was changed to P. moranensis, and still later to P. moranensis 'Superba'. The plant was widely distributed from Longwood, with three major distributions in 1977, 1979, and 1981. Unfortunately, at various times if was distributed under one of the above three names, but it always carried Longwood's accession number 19581059 (in the past abbreviate to 581059).

    Longwood Gardens did not assign to this plant a cultivar name 'Longwood', but it appears that it was thought of as a superior plant, therefore it was offered for distribution on three occasions. Our records indicate that the plant had deep carmine flowers, with lighter throat and reddish lines. We had this plant until about 1995.

    I would be very much interested to hear from you about the current status of this plant.

    Best regards

    Tomasz Anisko

    Does anyone have any questions for him before I write him back? I was going to mention that it is being distributed by LACPS - and if anyone has an extra in good condition I think we should offer to send him one! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
