Pinguicula x “Cheshire Cat” BARE ROOT

$ 34.99

Pinguicula x “Cheshire Cat” is a new release for 2023! This hybrid is a selected clone Pinguicula mesophytica x zecheri. We love the bright purple flowers because of their larger upper petals that are oversized and look like big cat ears! The plants are about the size of a quarter.

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

Pictures don't do it justice.

Cheshire Cat just bloomed for the first time for me and I'm blown away. I bought two and put them in the same pot while they were in succulent form. They filled out beautifully and we're much larger than I expected. The flower is stunningly beautiful. The richness of the color is really hard to capture with my phone. Highly recommend!
