    My P. 'Enigma' is flowering and I am wondering, can it self pollinate? Or should I just clip the flower?

    Pinguicula 'Enigma' does not yet exist, the name is pending until officially published. It is still known officially only by its Yucca Do identification, see: Eric's Yucca Do pages

    Perhaps it can be self pollinated. If you are interested in growing a population of distinct individual Pinguicula plants with this plant as their parent, I say: "Go for it."

    If you are successful (or not), please let us know. This can be very valuable information.

    I'm with Tamlin, who cares about seeds when you can enjoy the flower.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I never had any success when I tried to self mine last season but I tried using pollen from the flower I was trying to pollinate. If you swap pollen between flowers (which should be easy to do since this guy almost always sends up blooms in pairs) it might work.

    I disagree with Darcie that you shouldn't care about seed as hybrids can be very cool but I do agree that you should not cut off the flowers. They don't weaken the plant any and like Tamlin said they are beautiful
