    Hello
    I rarely, if ever, post on the Ping forum, but here I am anyhoo!

    A while back I purchased a large Pinguicula x 'Gina' (syn. 'Hans'). Eventually this plant made one of those mutant "pitcher" leaves, which Kit Halsted reported a while back.
    I removed that leaf and am currently rooting it successfully with my usual Ping propagation tek (chuck 'em into the highland Neps' house onto LFS), and will report back on anything interesting that may happen (though I VERY highly doubt it) regarding the leaves it makes.

    I'll take a pic of it later.
    Cheers,

    Amori

    Wow that is cool. That looks like a ping trying to imitate a pitcher plant... hmm I wonder if that is how evolution like VFTs and Sarrs taks place.

    Now that you mention it you are right! It does look like a Heliamphora!Don't kno why it slipped my mind. Hopefully this characteristic stays in your cutting as I would like to hav a plant like that too.

    that would be pretty cool, you know scientists predicted that the pitcher plant started somewhat like that

    It was, before I yanked it out of its parent. Before cleaning the leaf to propagate it, the interior was full of gnats, and mostly in the bottom half (the leaf was practically standing upright).

    Yeah, maybe it's just a strange Heli pitcher that I'm using as a hoax? Who knows? The only thing I can say to that is I don't have any Helis! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] I'll take a pic of it in about a week, by which time we should be able to see larger new growth (only green little stubs right now), and with a camera with better macro features.
