One of our all-time favorites, tiny little Pinguicula ehlerisiae stays dainty and small, blushing pink under strong light. The flowers extend on long stems from the tiny rosettes like a magic trick. Pinguicula ehlersiae ‘Victoria’ is a spectacular cultivar of this species and can develop deep pink coloration when grown under strong light.
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
