Pinguicula x ”Cherry Bomb” BARE ROOT
We’re super excited about this new hybrid for 2022 because of its huge, cherry red rosettes! It has magenta-pink flowers on tall scapes that perfectly match the vivid rosette below! If you’re looking for a big, beautiful Pinguicula to put on your windowsill, this is the perfect plant for you. The plants we are shipping are about the size of a quarter.
These plants go into a succulent winter phase where their leaves change size and shape; if you order in the cooler months of Nov-March, your plant may arrive in this succulent phase; it will appear much smaller than it will be in full spring/summer growth!
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
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
