Several plants in my collection were burnt badly. A few mesembs and pinguicula. I expect the pinguicula to die, but I would still like to try to revive them. The pinguicula are 'aphrodite', esseriana, and cyclosecta. the mesembs are ihlenfeldtia vanzylli, pleiospilos nelii, and lithops...
I have a few Venus fly traps that have just split or about to split off and ones that have split and been growing for some time that i have available to trade, sizes vary according to what type of vft they're coming from and how long they been growing as their own rooted plant in the pot.
I'm sure there are people on here who have experience self-pollinating Pinguicula. I have a P. cyclosecta that is putting up a flower, and I am wondering how different the F1 plants in a self-cross look from the parents, typically. Thanks for the info, the threads on Pinguicula pollination have...
I had a rough winter, for a variety of reasons and am trying to get some plants back into the collection:
I lost all of my VFT's and cobra lily, D. adelae, D. prolifera, D. falconeri, D. ordensis,... spatulata, capillaris,
rotundifolia, intermedia, burmannii. gypsicola, cyclosecta, gracilis...
For my birthday, someone was kind enough to send two pings:
and Pinguicula esseriana
Now I have a collection of four, inculding P. cyclosecta and P. koehres.
I planted them in the same all mineral substrate as my first two pings (70% turface 30% sand 0.05% Fe203) and...
Hi everyone, I'm an artist from Tucson. I just obtained two Mexican Pings and decided to join this forum in order to learn how to grow them better.
I've got lots of experience growing epiphytic orchids, some of the more interesting of which are Angraecum didieri, Jumellea comorensis, and a...
I need advice from the experts. I just started growing Pinguicula. About a month ago, I ordered a P. cyclosecta and a P. kohres from cascade carnivores, pictured below:
Left, P. cyclosecta Right, P. kohres. They came bare root. I planted them immediately in a 1:1:1 mixture of fine...
This is probably a fairly stupid question but I wanted to know if it were possible to grow Mexican pings, P. cyclosecta in particular, outside over the summer (protected from direct sunlight), then overwinter it under lights. I'm asking this because my growlight setup is very very poor and I...
Here is a pic of one of my Pinguicula cyclosecta in a 3.5 inch pot. The plant is transitioning to winter leaf form. The media is pumice with a little silica sand mixed in. The dark surface on the media is a film that forms, over time - it is likely a mixture of bacteria/algae and other...
I am thinking of taking some pullings from two of my Pinguicula, moranensis and cyclosecta. If I were to take pullings from a plant that is about to enter its succulent stage, would that mean that the shoots from the pullings would need the succulent stage/drier conditions on the same timeframe...
Figure I should upload some of my photos.
N. spectabilis giant x ventricosa
What I think is D. indica
N burkei x hamata
Woke up to this one morning
S. purpurea montana x Leah Wilkerson
So I have had a P. cyclosecta for about a year now. Below is a picture of what it looks like now, and as you can see it is lacking the more rounded leaves and has very little blue color to it. I grow it in a mix of peat, sand, and perlite with the top half inch being just sand. I use the tray...
I am looking for some more Sarrs as well as some VFT's as I dont have any in my bog and I think they would be a nice addition. I can send pics upon request, just dont have time to upload them all right now. So....here is what I have for trade:
P. gracilis x moctezumae
P. agnata "true blue"
I got this ping from the seller as P. emarginata x cyclosecta 2 years ago. It bloom nice this year.
However, I think the petal shape doesn't tell it is a cross of emarginata and cyclosecta.
What do you think? Any comment is appreciated.
