    Joseph,

    Does it ever go dormant? And if so do you have any shots of those rosettes?

    I am in agreement with Rubra that the leaf shape is different too but mine have been dormant for about 8 months so I might not be remembering my plant correctly. The flower is definitly different though. I will email you a couple flower shots tomorrow and if I have a good rosette shot I'll add that too.

    If I were to hazard a guess I would say this is either an 'Aphrodite' or some other moctezumae. It is also possible that this is a totally different agnata x gypsicola clone and not Leo's, perhapse something breed by Jan independently.

    Good eye!
    Did it actually catch that, or did you place it there, Joseph?


    Cheers,

    Joe,
    The crane fly was trapped without any assistance by me. I first noticed it when I was setting up to take this photo.

    Travis,
    They produced "winter form leaves" earlier, soon after I obtained them, but have not since then.

    I have Pinguicula 'Aphrodite', it is huge compared with these little ones. It has been in bloom continuously for almost a year now. Though I grow these under fluorescents also, they are on a 15 hour photoperiod. This seems presently to have inhibited any formation of "winter leaves", but gives the leaves a nice pink tinge.

    Here is a photograph of a different plant, obtained from another source, also identified as Pinguicula agnata x Pinguicula gypsicola. Looking at them side-by-side makes me wonder if the first one might be misidentified, its flower looks more like it might have Pinguicula moctezumae in its parentage rather than Pinguicula gypsicola?

    Further research has led me to believe the plant pictured in the opening post to this thread is actually the hybrid; Pinguicula gracilis x Pinguicula moctezumae.

    Joseph,

    Your clone B exactly matches my clone (as I am sure you will see from the pics I sent you a little bit ago.)

    Just out of curiosity, PinguiculaMan, what exactly was your process for deducing that your plant was actually a hybrid of Pinguicula gracilis x P. moctezumae, rather than a hybrid of P. agnata x P. gypsicola? Was it flower shape, plant size, leaf texture, coloration, etc.?

    Thanks,
    Corey
