Pinguicula calderoniae is a relatively new species and is one of the most unique! It’s sticky trapping leaves are long and strap like, like no other Ping and the succulent rosettes are equally bizarre, looking like little red pinecones. It makes bright magenta-pink flowers. It can be a trickier plant to grow, it dies back to a little red pinecones in the winter and needs to be very thoroughly dried out. Not recommended for beginners.
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
