Please note that many Pinguicula experience a winter succulent stage. During this stage, they lose their carnivorous leaves and grow smaller, tighter rosettes of succulent leaves. If you order in winter, you may receive plants in this winter succulent phase and they will appear quite small. Don’t worry, they’ll grow much larger leaves again in spring!
Sun: Sunny windowsills or in a terrarium under four T5 bulbs, filtered sun outdoors in the tropics
Water: Water frequently from overhead (gently) or into saucer with distilled or purified water from Spring through Summer so that the soil does not dry out too much in between watering 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
