    P. laueana flower

    A freshly pollinated flower.



    Yesterday the pollen didn't release onto the toothpick, but today the toothpick picked up the pollen well and i was able to dab quite a bit of pollen onto the stigma.

    very nice! i hope your plant is self-fertile! i hear certain clones of laueana dont produce pollen because of TC issues?

    P. laueana swollen seed pod

    Thanks Amphirion, yesterday i was almost ready to concede that maybe the pollen produced from this flower might not be viable.

    The flower had been pollinated with a toothpick for three or four consecutive days, and yet the flower continued to stay atop the scape in seemingly pristine condition instead of dropping after a few days as would be expected from a pollinated Pinguicula.

    But last night around midnight, i noticed that the flower petals had noticably drooped.

    Later on today i took another closer look and accidentally knocked the bloom off of the flower and this swollen seed pod is what's left to show for my efforts.



    Hopefully, i'll be able to harvest some viable seed from this plant...i'd love to have some unique P. laueana seedlings, especially seedlings from a plant that doesn't mind flowering.

    I wanted to report my success with this, but didn't wanna start a new thread. Hope it's okay to just put it up here.



    P. x 'Tina' crossed back on itself. Any idea how viable the seed might be? I'll have to find space for a pot to try them in...

    That's looking like a full seed pod developing for you there.

    Hopefully you get a lot of viable seed from that pod.

    Here's an update on the the P. laueana flower that i pollinated and it's still swelling seed capsule.

    dvg,

    What're your plans for germinating those seeds of yours? I'd love to coordinate our efforts to experiment with germination methods for these guys.

    *****Nevermind, the seedpod opened today and revealed that it was actually empty today. (I had a vial under it to catch the seeds when they fell, and it's totally empty)******
