Pinguicula laueana "Tangerine" BARE ROOT

$ 19.99

Damon made this laueana here at CalCarn by crossing our red flowered form of laueana with our fuchsia flowered form of laueana. You never know what you are going to get when you make a hybrid and this one knocked our socks off with tangerine colored flowers! It’s the closest thing to an orange-flowered ping we’ve seen so far!  This might just be Damon's favorite laueana!

What we love about Pinguicula laueana "Tangerine":

These plants have a winter succulent phase in which they shed their carnivorous leaves and grow smaller succulent leaves. They greatly reduce in size, shrinking down to a tiny, cute little succulent rosette! If you order in winter, you plant will come in a tiny succulent rosette. But don’t worry, with proper conditions it will soon grow much larger carnivorous leaves and surprise you with its fantastically quick growth!


THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL.  MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.

Care Instructions
Sun: Sunny windowsills or in a terrarium under four T5 bulbs, filtered sun outdoors in the tropics
Water: Sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water from Spring through Summer and in winter they should be allowed to dry out slightly during their winter succulent phase
Temperature: 50 degrees - 90 degrees 

Soil: this plant comes potted in our custom butterwort soil mix
Dormancy: no true dormancy but does have a winter succulent phase during which the plant will produce small succulent leaves instead of flat sticky leaves

It is the cutest little roset

The plant is healthy and came packed well. I also bout their six plant package (3 venus, 1 pitcher and 2 sundews) and I can not be more happy.

This is my new go-to for my carnivorous plant love.

Devastating

I was hoping based on good reviews and the price for a lovely new Ping. It arrived half dead and the rest turned black two days later. I bought the recommended soil and a heat pack to ensure success. I watched the videos and followed all instructions trying to save what remained but there was no hope. Really broke my heart and now I have a bag of soil for nothing.
