    Looking for Pinguicula

    Looking for some Pinguicula:
    P. laueana
    P. 'Florian'
    P. 'George Sargent'
    P. 'Seductora'
    P. agnata red leaf
    P. agnata scented flower
    P. agnata true blue
    P. ibarrae
    P. "Guatemala 3100 m"
    P. "Sierra Mazatecas"
    P. acuminata
    P. debbertiana
    P. heterophylla
    and any other interesting species and hybrids that I do not have.

    It's true that I haven't been doing a very good job of updating my grow list. Make me an offer. I have various Drosera and Pinguicula for trade. I am looking for plants and/or leaf pullings.

    Thanks,
    Crystal

    I've got P. 'Florian', acuminata, and George SGT. I also have the CSUF version of agnata, although its pedigree was recently questioned.

    Hey Jim! Does your acuminata look like gigantea? Mine does. I thought they looked a bit too similar and looked it up on cpphotofinder. Does yours look anything like these: http://www.cpphotofinder.com/pinguic...minata-34.html

    It sorta reminds me of P. macrophylla.

    I'm pretty sure I got my CSUF from you awhile back, I think at least. It's the same one that Av has in the thread in question.

    I would certainly like to get a 'Florian' and George SGT from you!

    This is what I have for P. agnata 'CSUF':




    and this is the P. acuminata:



    I had a CSUF plant a few years ago (moranensis?), from WickedThistle. But it died. I used to have agnata and acuminata galore, but they all died out a couple years ago. CSUF is supposed to be Cal State Fullerton.

    The agnata I had turned red very easily, but I never had any of the variants.

    I need to wait a bit before I send out more plants. I have a couple trades going and the car needed new brake rotors and pads this week.

    I no longer have a straight up gigantea. The one I had should have been called 'Dwarf'. OTOH, the gigantea x moctezumae has become a monster.



    I have horrible luck / skill with straight up species, like moctezumae, gigantea, lauenea,... but as soon as it gets crossed with something, they hybrids grow like gangbusters.[COLOR="green"]

    This was P. acuminata from 2006:



    and this is what I had as P. agnata, also from 2006:



    This is an agnata I had in 2008:



    and this the acuminata in 2008



    Apparently, they didn't die out until sometime last year.

    :raises hand:

    Jimscott, I have a question. Looking at your photos, it looks like many of your pings grow in LFSM. However, isn't the acidic nature of sphagnum supposed to be somewhat inhabitable to pings, versus an alkaline mix more similar to their nature habitat?

    sorry jim. that doesnt look like acuminata to me. i remember that was the plant you sent me as P. acuminata a few years ago when you sent me several pullings(many thanks by the way!!) it turned out to be similar to agnata or gigantea which is what i later labeled as agnata. acuminata leaves(as shown in the link) are like spade shovels.

    nesler: I upgraded my media since then. I now mix crushed coral, egg shells, perlite, and sand. Now it's alkaline.

    Alex, et al: Okay... well those plants and their offspring are now long gone from my collection. I have no idea how, where, or when labels got messed, either by me or someone before me or after me. If it was me, I apologize.

    I have a spare P. debbertiana.
