You're a good guesser Jeff. It took about 4 years in total to make the first cross and then the second cross. I wonder if anyone has had success making an even more complex hybrid. The laueana I used didn't come with any background information but it was just a typical bright red flowered plant...
It's an F2 hybrid between P. laueana and another species. First crosses of laueana are always purple in my experience but if you cross the F1 offspring, you get segregation of the traits. I find it interesting that the red color is still difficult to achieve; although, i have read that laueana x...
One of my ping hybrids is creating a red flower! It's not the crimson red of laueana but it's as close as I've seen yet. The flowers start out red and then mature to light red, maybe even pinkish. At the very least, it's the first ping hybrid that I've seen that has a true red color around the...
I intend to fix all the previous photos but in the mean time, here a few new photos.
P. "Sethos." Sethos, Weser, and Weser Fake are fairly easy to tell apart when grown under good light and when flowering.
P. "Weser Fake"
i think it's time to get some trades going before it gets too cold outside.
Here is what i have to offer:
P. macrophylla (roughly 1.5-2 inches)
P. BCP Golden Eye (1 flowering size plant, maybe other small ones available)
P. gigantea (large sized)
P. esseriana (likely the giant...
Another one of my hybrids looks like a real winner! The ruffled edges are interesting.
P. gigantea x moranensis roseii
P. Lautner 92/52
Hey, patrickntg, here is your p. agnata true blue x moranensis var alba
P. agnata True Blue
Another of my cross is blooming and it has an even more intense color. It's like a fluorescent pink with maybe a slight bit of orange. Certainly one of these plants will be cultivar worthy. It definitely has that deep intense color of P. laueana and it really stands out against all my other ping...
P. agnata "Ekuma" x emarginata showing a double flower.
P. rectifolia. Unknown origins but it has a habit of splitting into numerous plants when awakening from it's winter rosette which i have never seen in any other plant.
P. emarginata x cyclosecta
P. agnata x (moranensis x ehlersiae)
P. Site 1#2 x gypiscola (No idea who made this or what Site 1#2 is)
P. Huahuapan has to be one of the most spectacular flowers!
I don't think I'm the first to create an orange flowered ping hybrid but i'm certainly excited...
I expect more pings to flower this spring but here is a few more!
P. cyclosecta 1714 (I need more of these Yucca Do Complex plants)
P. rectifolia (Unknown origins but i call it my floriferous clone because it flowers pretty much all year long).
P. moranensis "D"
P. BCP Golden Eye
P. "John Rizzi"
Some of my 30 or so hybrids I made this last year are finally flowering!
P. emarginata green x rectifolia floriferous clone
P. gigantea x moranensis rosei
I'm definitely interested in doing some trades this year so let me know if you...
P. moranensis "J"
P. Site 2#6CC. This looks like moranensis to me.
P. "Marciano" This leaves on this plant are really cool!
P. Alfred Lau #13 This may be the fuzziest flower ever.
P. moctezumae x gigantea
A lot of my pings are covered in fish food at the moment but here is a few pictures of laueana and laueana crimson flower:
And a few more photos i found:
P. agnata 'Ekuma' x emarginata. The flower is a little beaten up but still looking good.
And Jim, I'm always looking for...
I thought you guys might appreciate some photos of what I have flowering right now. Enjoy!
P. emarginata Typical green form
P. agnata x gypsicola
P. agnata Red Leaf
P. laueana Crimson Flower
P. gypsicola x khores
P. mesophytica or I guess moranensis...
D. Andromeda plantlets (12, roughly 1-2.5 inch plants). The adult plants are roughly 5-6 inches wide! I can either ship them bare root or divided and potted.
I'm looking to expand my Ping collection mainly but i'm interested in virtually anything else i don't have. See my growlist...
I have at least 4-5 packets of 10 D. grievei gemmae available for trade. It's an uncommon pygmy that would make an excellent addition to a collection. I'm looking for any pings and dews that are not on my grow list but i'll consider other offers. PM me trade offers.
I have packages of 10 or more D. barbigera gemmae available for trade. I also have D. sp South Africa seeds available (50+ seeds per packet).
I'm looking for Sarracenia, Sarracenia seeds, Drosera i don't have ( D. intermedia x capillaris, D. x Nagamoto D beleziana, D x watari, ext), and any...
