    Talking

    I have a small pot of Pinguicula esseriana that is currently in full bloom. I stuck my nose in the blossoms this morning, just out of curiosity, and I found that they had the most delicious citrus fragrance! Granted, it is not very strong but it is of excellent quality. It is certainly a bonus with this already wonderful species.

    Anybody else notice this fragrance on P. esseriana?

    Take care,
    Corey

    p. essariana is one of my favorite pings. Unfortunately, I killed the momma plant and then sunburned the clones I propagated. It looks like most have survived, but I doubt seriously I'll get any flowers this year.

    I hadn't heard that they had a scent, but I am looking forward to smelling their fragrance for myself now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    As an update, I have discovered that this fragrance is only produced during the early morning hours from about 6:00 am to 10:00 am. I have tried sniffing the blooms at all times of day, but I can only discern the fragrance within this certain time frame.

    Cheers,
    Corey
