Another new creation for 2023! This is probably the most spectacular Ping to come out of the California Carnivores breeding program! Move over cyclosecta because she is purple! We knew we had a winner with this one early on when it was even turning purple in the tissue culture jars in our lab under low light. Once we move them under our grow lights, everyone here was totally blown away! There has never been a Ping so purple and we’re so excited to release it that we’re doing this limited early release before we’ve even seen them flower! The shining star of any Ping collection; “Mad Madam Mim”. Pinguicula cyclosecta x laueana “CalCarn Red”.
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.
