    Confusion with Ping IDs

    Pings are rarely offered for sale in Singapore. Recently, there was a batch of at least two hybrids that was offered for sale and some of us bought them.

    Recently, some of them flowered, and while we thought that the plant was the same hybrid (false Weser/Sethos), due to the wavy margins and broadly lanceolate leaf shape, the flowers all look somewhat different.

    Three of the flowers from three separate plants grown by three different growers are shown below. Is it possible that there are three types involved or are the differences we see due to cultural conditions or hybrid diversity?

    Grown by guqin under PL lights for 16 hours a day, airconditioned room



    Grown by Cindy under T5 lights, outdoors on a balcony at a high-rise apartment



    Grown by another grower, outdoors, bright light with direct sunlight from 11 to 12 pm.

    Isn't that the "garden center" weser?

    Yes, that is the same one I posted earlier. However, we cannot understand why three plants of supposed same parentage can produce such different flowers.

    It's a matter of genetics. Brothers and sisters may look similar but different in many ways.

    And the plants in question may have different individual parents (i.e. same species but not the same plant.)

    BTW: the flower in photos #1 and #2 looks very much like P. 'Sethos'

    They are not 'Sethos' The true 'Sethos' was never mass produced so you are unlikely to get hold of one except through serious Ping growers like Joseph

    IMHO plant 1 and 3 are the garden center bogus Weser. The difference in bloom appearance to me seems due to light levels (the actual plant in 1 is pink indicating high light while plant 3 is green indicating lower light.) Different light level can have drastic effects on bloom colour.

    Plant 2 could be the bogus Weser or it could be a type of moranensis. The "mangled" appearance of the bloom makes it hard to tell.
