Pinguicula primuliflora is a popular species in cultivation. In nature, it is found in coastal areas of the Florida panhandle west into Louisiana. It forms a handsome rosette of pale-green, pointed leaves up to four inches across. The plants are often found in mostly shaded areas of very wet peat and sphagnum, often along the edges of streams and ponds. While the plants are short-lived and prone to rot, they spread by producing plantlets at the tips of their leaves. Keep them shaded from hot sun. They do not do well in very hot areas. They can do well indoors under grow lights or in a terrarium.
This primuliflora is widely sought out due to it's exceptional flowers! The beautiful flowers have incised petals that are pinkish violet with a white center and a yellow beard like other primuliflora but this is a double flowered plant so each flower has a rose-like, pom-pom of petals! These are very rare and we are so excited to be able to offer them for the first time at CalCarn! These are super beautiful but not for the beginner.
THESE PLANTS WILL COME BARE ROOT AND NOT IN POTS. YOU WILL NEED TO POT THEM UP UPON ARRIVAL. WARM TEMPERATE PINGUICULA DO BEST IN OUR PEAT AND PERLITE MIX.
