This is one of our favorite plants from famed grower, Mark Rubnitz. It has deep pink lined leaves that sparkle in the afternoon sun. We’d grow this Ping just for the rosettes but the flowers are also truly remarkable! The stunning flowers are large and richly veined with lavender like the delicate, ephemeral wings of a lacewing. The beautiful venation is highlighted by the yellow throats of the flowers. This ping is almost always in bloom! We have never released this for sale, and it is exclusive to California Carnivores. Don’t miss out on this must-have for the Ping!
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
