    I aquired a P agnata moranensis in a trade about four months ago and it is now has one flower that has been open for about five days. My question is; is it self seeding?
    I am growing it in 50/50 peat and silica sand and have it in a water tray. Is this a healthy set up for it. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.
    Here are some pics.

    It looks more like the common P. 'weser' than P. moranensis or P. agnata. What is P. agnata moranensis according to your trade ??

    You`ll have to polinate it to get seed to my knowledge they don`t self seed,although you can self polinate it.

    Hi Lauderdale,

    The plant is a hybrid between moranensis and ehlersiae, possibly 'Sethos'. 'Weser' has the solitary white stripe down the throat, so the plant is probably not this cultivar.
    I am guessing you received the plant from M.H.

    I am way behind the curve on identifying plants and simply assumed the guy that sent it to me knew what it is. If someone can give me the correct identy, I would appreciate it.
    I just noticed that a second flower is starting. Can I pollinate from two flowers on the same plant? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Jan,

    Sure looks like what you have may well be, Pinguicula 'Sethos'.

    See: Page with descriptions and standards for P. 'Sethos' and P. 'Weser'
    and Link to earlier discussion of this topic.

    Since two very knowledgable people have ID'd this as P. Sethos, my grow list will be change accordingly. Thanks guys.
    All I got to do is figure out how to pollinate it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    CP2k, I cannot for the life of me remember (so much for my record keeping abilities) who I got it from. All I know is he was a college student from Miami.

    The usual pollination technique for Pinguicula Earlier thread with pollination information will work.

    However, it took me about a dozen attempts before I finally obtained viable seed. Perhaps it was a genetic accident that I was successful. Many times nothing happened, a few times seed formed but did not germinate. Finally, a seed pod formed and all of the seed germinated --- several dozens have grown to maturity and are blooming now. Soon, I plan to post photos of those presently in bloom. They seem to be a good illustration of F2 hybrid segregation.
