Pinguicula “Lilac Lollipop” BARE ROOT

$ 24.99

We have run out of stock for this item.

Pinguicula moranensis var. alba "Molongo" x cyclosecta is perhaps our favorite hybrid that Damon’s ever made. We’ve decided to name this fantastic plant “Lilac Lollipop” in honor of its spectacular lilac flowers!

These little butterworts blush a soft purple when exposed to bright light, like a giant cyclosecta. It produces so many l flowers that are a sweet lavender reminiscent of a violet. We’re head over heels in love with this plant! This is Kate and Daniela's must have butterwort!

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
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

Sadly, the plant died. However!

Unfortunately out of all the $100’s I’ve spent at my favorite “California Carnivores” online plant shop. This has been the only specific Ping plant that has died about 4 days after planting, it with the rest of my Ping’s. Maybe I’ll order it again someday. I understand these things just happen even to the best of us. Best online carnivores shop though! ❤️

California carnivores, contacted me via email to replace or refund my money. I’ve requested a new plant and waiting for them to contact via email to replace with a fresh new Ping!

Thank you! You guys are the best online store for Carnivores!
