    I found this listing on ebay, "Pinguicula 'Sethos' is a registered cultivar of Pinguicula, common name Butterwort. Registered October 11, 1998 by Adrian Slack."

    Does anyone know what specie this is? I am not at all familiar with pings and their cultivars. This is a link to the post.

    I thought it was a nice looking plant and maybe an easier one to grow. I have had some success with P. pumila and recently got a P. moranensis. I want to add a few Pings to my collection this year and want to find some easier species to start with.

    I'm not certain it is a species, neccessarily. By my understanding, a cultivar can be derived from a species or a hybrid. P. 'Sethos' is not in the Savage Garden, but I've seen it for sale and in discussion so I know it's legit...
    Perhaps you should try some of the carnivorous plant registries? I don't know their names off the top of my head, but if you did a little digging, perhaps at the CP FAQ, I'm sure you could find what you're looking for.
    Good luck.

    It is, as Seandew has mentioned, it is a cultivar derived from the hybrid of Pinguicula ehlersiae x Pinguicula moranensis.

    See: CP Database entry for P. 'Sethos'

    BTW, specie and species are two entirely different words with different meanings.

    See:
    Dictionary for specie

    Species is the word that applies in this context.

    I just checked "The Savage Garden" and Pinguicula 'Sethos' is indeed listed on page 211 of the 1998 paperback edition as a hybrid of Pinguicula moranensis x Pinguicula ehlersiae. However, I am starting to realize that not all information in this book is accurate...

    Hey Pingman, how close do you keep 'sethos' to the lights in order to get the nice coloring. Do you grow all of your Pings under artificial lighting? Also, it would seem that to bring that kind of color out, you would have to have the pings within a few inches of the florescent lights and that would interfere with flowering. Just curious, because I'm thinking about building a 4 tier grow chamber, and I would like to have one shelf dedicated to pings and dews.

    Good eyes. I'm lazy - I just look in the index and if it's not there, it's not in the book.
