Hi Gerhard,

I don't know what you would call a large variation then! As far as I am concerned variation between seedlings in this batch is quite large, especially the one with the red pouch is quite outstanding. Congratulations with that result!

Perhaps it's the photo, but petals and sepals seem to me quite dark for pubescens and are more reminescent of the European calceolus. Are you sure that this sowing isn't a result from an inadvertent cross between calceolus and pubescens made by a bumble bee? My pubescens are all much lighter as compared to these. Paul Perakos, could you comment on that? You've got quite a large collection with different types of pubescens. (By the way: I've got some seedlings of your pubescens "Huge Pouch" coming along).
