Comment: priority for parentage
Synonym: =Pinguicula agnata Casper * Pinguicula moctezumae Zamudio Ruiz
Originator: J.Flisek, Frenstat p.R., & K.Pasek, Dobroslavice, Czech Republic, 6. 1998
Nominant: J.Flisek & K.Pasek, 23. 2. 2000
Registrant: J.Flisek & K.Pasek, 23. 2. 2000
Horicultural comment: Registered 29. 1. 2001 {JS}
Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.29:120 (2000)
Propagation: leaf cuttings
Etymology: after the Greek goddess of love and beauty
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.29:118 (2000)
"The cultivar Pinguicula ' Aphrodite ' J.Flisek & K.Pasek is characterized by its very long, narrow leaves with rounded tips which terminate in a point. The summer rosette consists of up to 15 leaves which are up to 12 cm long and 2 cm wide; the leaf-edges roll downwards. The erect leaves display a characteristic, descending-arch along their lengths. Under intense summer sunlight, the leaf-edges of leaves can be reddish, whereas the leaf midribs remain green along their enitre length. During the winter, the rosette size decreases, whilst the number of leaves increases to as many as 25. The leaves of the winter rosette are up to 5-6 cm long and 1.3 cm broad; mostly they are flat and light green. The plants bloom all year round, indeed during the winter the plants can have the most flowers open at the same time. The color and size of the flowers changes as the flowers age. Freshly open flowers are relatively small and are generally dark-violet. As the flowers age they enlarge and fade to pink. When viewed from the proper angle the petals reflect light to give a shiny appearance. The posterior side of the flower is significantly lighter in color. Gentle, faint veining is apparent over the entire surface of the five (very exceptionally six) petals; this venation is more distinct towards the flower center. The entrance to the corolla tube and the tube itself is bright yellow, and minutely hairy. Mature flowers can reach 4 cm in a diameter and this in fact ranks them among the true giants of the Pinguicula L.! The spur of the flower is narrow, slightly bowed and may be up to 1.5 cm long. Flowering time is about four weeks depending on the growing condition. Flower stalks can reach 15 cm in length (exceptionally 22 cm), the upper part of the stalk (about 1-2 cm) can be brownish-red, and the lower part is green and covered with tentacles. The sepals are a rich green color."

Horicultural comment: Registered 12. 6. 2008 {JS}
Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.37:24 (2008)
Propagation: vegetative
Etymology: after the breeder's adoptive country
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.37:22 (2008)
"Under good conditions the plant has between 10-12 leaves when in active growth. Its leaves are narrowly linear, up to 1cm wide and 6 cm long. They are green-purplish but are dark purple at the base. This leaf colour is present even in a shady situation but the purple colour intensifies in sunnier positions. The outstanding leaf color is a major reason I believe cultivar registration is warranted for this clone.
Flowers are uniformly pale mauve and unscented. The five petals are about 1cm long. The upper petals are about 8 mm wide and 8 mm long (measured from the petal tip to the point of fusion between them). The two lower lateral petals are 6 mm wide and 10 mm long from the tip of the petals to the point where they fuse with the lower central petal. The lower central petal is about 8 mm wide and approximately 12 mm long, measured from its tip to its points of fusion with the lower lateral petals. All the petals are square-tipped and reticulated with darker veins.
The corolla has a cream to yellowish ring extending from the lower part of the corolla up to the apron-like dark purple lobe of the stigma. This ring does not continue above the stigmatic lobe. The spur is 20 mm long, angled approximately 12deg to the pedicel.
The main flowering time is from early spring to early winter, but flowering can occur throughout the year. Each plant may have as many as three flowers blooming at the same time, and they last up to three weeks.
Like both of its parents, Pinguicula ' Down Under ' H.Kibellis responds well to permanently moist to wet conditions."

Etymology: because of unknown origin/parentage of the plant
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.33:84 (2004)
"Its spoon-like leaves with upturned margins characterize the carnivorous foliage of this plant. During this phase of growth the rosette consists of up to twenty leaves, which are up to 4 cm long and 1 cm wide at their widest point. Initially the leaves tend to be held at an upright angle, but later they arc down to lay flat. The leaves remain a light green colour, even under intense light. During succulent growth, the size of the rosette decreases and the number of leaves increases to 50 or more. These leaves lack any upturned margins and are covered with sparse fine hair. They are spathulate in shape and up to 2 cm long and 0.75 cm wide. The plants bloom from early spring through summer. Flowers generally occur in pairs and it is not uncommon to have 2-3 pairs open at the same time. The colour of the flowers is lilac with very prominent violet veins and a white throat, and they often have a velvety sheen to them. As with many of the Mexican Pinguicula L. the colour tends to fade slowly as the flowers age. The back of the flower is pale-grey/white in colour and the veining is also prominent. Fully open flowers typically measure 2.5-3 cm in diameter. This plant is easily propagated via leaf cuttings and also has a tendency to divide readily after flowering, forming large clusters."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.33:20 (2004)
"The hybrid has two different rosette types. The winter rosette consists of up to 100 spatulate, non-carnivorous winter leaves, each up to 2.5 cm long and up to 0.6 cm wide. These are mostly green, but sometimes the leaves can be green with red highlights. The summer leaves are less numerous (up to 25), and are spatulate to obovate in form with the outermost part of the leaf having an upturned margin. The coloration of the leaves is mostly green-brown to green-red. The plants flower mostly when in the winter rosette stage, and produce up to 5-8 flowers per year. The two corolla lips form an angle between 20 and 45 degrees. The two lobes of the upper lip overlap slightly and are spatulate to obovate in form, up to 1.2 cm long and 0.9 cm at the widest point. The three lobes of the lower lip are also spatulate to obovate, up to 1.5 cm long and 0.9 cm at the widest point. The lobes are pink, with darker parallel veins that run from the lobe base into the throat. The proximal palate surface bears two rows of yellow to light green hairs. The corolla tube is short (0.2 cm), with two rows of yellow hairs at its base. The outside of the tube is whitish to pale green, and also bears parallel venation. The (light green) spur can be up to 1.2 cm long and bears brown to reddish venation. All five calyx lobes are obovate, light green and approximately 0.4 cm long. The lower two calyx lobes are almost parallel to each other. The stigmata is ochre. The flower stalk is up to 16 cm long, and bears some glandular hairs near the top."

"The selected cultivated variety (...) forms a winter succulent rosette and a summer carnivorous one, both relatively small and rather brown-coloured when grown in sunny sites. The winter rosette, consisting of about 50 drop-shaped leaves, measures about 27 mm across. The summer rosette, consisting of 10 to 18 leaves, measures about 45 mm across. Its leaves are spathulate, membranous, turned upwards in the margins. Flowers are produced at any time, by both the winter and the summer rosettes, but most frequently in November. Flower stalks are about 55 mm high. The corolla is subisolobous, is oval in outline when viewed from the front, and measures up to 30 by 27 mm. The wide corolla lobes touch or cover each other in the margins. They are corrugated and slightly emarginate. The corolla is lilac, darker reticulated, with a yellowish stripe in the middle lobe of the lower lip. The corolla tube is 4 mm long. The bluntly pointed spur is 8 mm long, bent towards the lower lip. The calyx consists of narrow, about 2.5 mm long lobes, rounded at the tip. The calyx, the corolla tube, the spur and the flower stalk are endowed with glandular hairs. The stigma is purple, corrugated, with long hairs in the reverse side. The plant is sterile. Its minor capsule measures 1 mm, and it is spherical, dark green, with sessile glands on the surface. Pinguicula ' Hanka ' Studnicka may be propagated easily by means of leaf cuttings made from the numerous winter leaves."

"The plant itself is heterophyllous, which in summer has about 25 round leaves (up to 4 cm) that overlap partially, while in winter has about 40 leaves with a length of 2-3 cm. The amount of light on a south facing windowsill is enough to color the plant a nice orange-red. With poor lighting the leaves are green like in the parents. Summer rosette is about 9 cm in diameter; winter rosette is smaller about 4-5 cm.
The flower has two upper and three lower petals (which do not overlap) and has a total size of about 2 cm. Flowering is between March and May, during which 3-6 flowers are typically produced. The color is a light purple, very close to Pinguicula debbertiana Speta & Fuchs and gets darker in the middle of the flower. The throat instead is nearly white and shows a venation like Pinguicula debbertiana Speta & Fuchs. Venation is strong in the middle of the flower and becomes hard to see on the outer petal. Like Pinguicula agnata Casper, the hybrid flower has a strong pubescence, especially on the lower petals and where Pinguicula debbertiana Speta & Fuchs has its typical "yellow brush". The "brush" itself is weakly developed with a white-yellow color."

"The leaf rosettes of both forms (two different clones of the same parentage considered as one cultivar) are relatively similar, except in size. It is therefore very natural to call one "grande forme" (sic!) (large form) and the other one, wouldn't you have guessed? "petite forme" (sic!) (small form). The heritage from both parents is straightforward. While the summer rosettes are the exact copy of those of Pinguicula ' Sethos ' Hort.Slack, the winter rosettes are very compact like Pinguicula ' Huahuapan ' Hort.Slack. The plants bloom without any surprise at the end of winter. In early blooming stages they have a striking resemblance to the picture by Adrian Slack in his book "Indect Eating Plants", page 110 ( Pinguicula ' Huahuapan ' Hort.Slack). Any similarity disappears when the blooms open. Though the flowers of Pinguicula ' L'Hautil ' L.Legendre & S.Lavayssiere 'Petite Forme' (sic!) resemble the ones of Pinguicula ' Sethos ' Hort.Slack, the flowers of 'Grande Forme' (sic!) consist of very large petals, partially overlapping. In both cases, the petals are slightly undulating, a heritage of Pinguicula ' Huahuapan ' Hort.Slack. The flowers of both forms display identical sets of colours. Their central core is light green. It gives rise to a white spot of 5 by 2 mm on the lower central petal. The central region of the base of both lateral lower petals is marked by two central white lines, 3-4 mm long, which are framed by dark violet lines. The rest of the petals are of a lighter, but still profound, violet colouration. The upper petals are characterised by the same violet tint, though they lack the white spots. The spur, 3 cm long, is almost straight, bending only slightly towards the floor. Tn the case of 'Grande forme', the flower is 3 cm high as well as wide. In 'Petite Forme' it is only 2 cm high and slightly less in width. Both forms bloom generously so that one can expect 2-4 consecutive flowers each year. Since both hybrids divide vegetatively while blooming, beautiful specimens having large floral displays can easily be obtained within a few years."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.31:83 (2002)
"This plant has already been mentioned in the pages of this journal (Carniv.Pl.Newslett.29:55, 2000), when one of us (BMR) reported on how the only specimen we had of this plant nearly rotted to extinction.
In foliage, Pinguicula ' Libelulita ' Rice & Salvia is not particularly different from any of the other many clones of Pinguicula L. in cultivation, but in flower it is so striking that some horticulturists have remarked that it nearly appears to be a new species.
The five petals are large and square-tipped. They are overall pink-purple, deeper so on the distal 2/3rds, and pale to near-white closer to the petal bases. Where the petals fuse, they suddenly darken to a deep velvet red, marked with a few white streaks on the lower-most petal. For us, the most amazing feature of this cultivar is the bold petal venation. This venation reminds one of us in particular (EMS) of the reticulated network of veins visible in the transparent wings of dragonflies."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.29:17 (2000)
"Resulting from a cross made 14 October 1986, this plant has proven itself to be forgiving of cultivation errors and resilient to adverse growing conditions. Its flowers are attractive and clear pink, similar in general plan to Pinguicula moranensis H.B.K. but with more rounded petals, akin to those of Pinguicula agnata Casper. Mature plants are about 7 cm. in diameter and may produce a few blooms each year. It is the leaves that are the most striking feature of this plant - it has inherited the opalescent pinky-white foliage of Pinguicula ehlersiae Speta & Fuchs. In some growing conditions Pinguicula ' Pirouette ' J.Brittnacher, B.Rice & L.Song becomes so suffused with rich-pink or even red it looks remarkably like a chlorophyll-free saprophyte one might encounter deep in pine woods! Under moderate light, the leaves are very pale pink with a touch of light green. The leaves this plant produces during the dormant season are smaller and more succulent. Leaf cuttings are best taken with these leaves just before or as the summer leaves begin to emerge. The leaf cuttings root easily. This plant should not be propagated by seed if you wish to maintain the cultivar name attached to it. Its good looks and easy cultivation make Pinguicula ' Pirouette ' J.Brittnacher, B.Rice & L.Song an excellent beginners plant. If you want to try a carnivore on your windowsill, this might be the one to start with!"

Originator: Botanical Garden Liberec, CZ, 1994

Registrant: M.Srba, 29. 7. 2016
Horicultural comment: Registered 27. 1. 2017 {JS}
Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.45:162&168 (back cover) (2016)
Propagation: vegetative, especially by winter (bulb) leaf cuttings
Etymology: after reminiscence of plant to dangerous predator of tropical coral reefs
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.45:162 (2016)
"Pinguicula ' Red Starfish ' M.Srba (Fig. 5 & Back Cover) provides an unusual look that is much more "carnivorous" compared to other Pinguicula L. species or established cultivars. (...) This clone was selected in 1997 with a special emphasis on the flower color.
Summer leaf rosette is usually 6-9 cm in diameter and consists of 12-20 leaves. Leaves are lanceolate, rolled downwards in lateral as well as in tangential direction. Well-illuminated plants turn into a red-purple coloration. Winter rosette is bulbous, predominantly submerged, and similar to Pinguicula heterophylla Benth.. Winter "bulb" of juvenile plants is fusiform, in mature plants almost globose, consisting of 40-70 leaves. Pinguicula ' Red Starfish ' M.Srba flowers in the beginning of the vegetative season, just after waking from the dormant period. Flowers are sterile. Corolla is dark blue-purple, resembling Pinguicula heterophylla Benth. in shape. Petals are slightly twisted. Size of the flowers is 18-22 mm. Spoon spur is straight, about 20 mm long. Flower stalk is 9-13 cm tall.
Sufficient growth conditions for Pinguicula ' Red Starfish ' M.Srba are the same as in other Mexican Pinguicula L. species strictly undergoing dry winter dormancy like e.g. Pinguicula gypsicola Brandeg., Pinguicula heterophylla Benth., or Pinguicula medusina Zamudio Ruiz & Studnicka. Although it doesn't exhibit any specific growing requirements, we would like to provide several tips to optimize growth of this cultivar. During the first years of our experience, it seemed that Pinguicula ' Red Starfish ' M.Srba is not very floriferous. Later we realized, that the growth period of this clone is very long, lasting until November or even December in conditions of central Europe. If the growth activity is rapidly interrupted by low temperatures or rapid drought, the fitness of dormant plants is significantly decreased. On the other hand, if mild temperatures (8-18 degC) and slightly wet soil is provided during the phenophase transition (beginning of dormancy), the winter bulbs get much stronger. Specimens that formed bulb at least 10 mm wide bloom regularly with 1-3 flowers."

The leaves resemble the pollen parents, in having a longer and more pronounced petiole than the leaves of the seed parent. However, the flower shape definitely favors the seed parent, but the blue edges have been replaced with an even magenta glow. A slight fragrance is also evident. It forms a large subterranean hibernaculum, but has a relatively short dormant period. Pinguicula ' Titan ' L.Song is very vigorous and easy to grow. It survives on store shelves longer than all other carnivorous plants, flowering there even after Venus Flytraps, sundews, and Sarracenia L. have died."
