    P. laueana hybrid seed grown (Michael $3)

    Up for action is one (1) seed grown P. laueana hybrid. I made the cross myself, but didn't keep good notes. I'm not sure what it is crossed with. It is possible it could be selfed as well. Regardless of what it appears to be, please call it "P. laueana hybrid". At flowering age, it may be...

    My Pinguicula have been in full bloom this year. I decided to mess around a bit with pollination. I really didn't know what I was doing. I basically just used an old flower stalk from a Drosera, colored the tip black with a Sharpie, found the pollen and rubbed it around the inside of some...

    Sarra minor seeds hybrids

    I'm going through trimming some dead pitchers off on my Sarracenia and I just noticed I have a dried flower head that has a burst seed pod with what looks like viable seed on the inside.
