Pinguicula cyclosecta is probably one of the most beautiful of all the butterworts. It is a miniature species of flat rosettes which usually get no bigger than a 50 cent piece. When grown in strong light all of the leaves are actually purple! The metallic purple flowers are born on short scapes but it's pretty enough to grow just for the leaves! This plant is one of Damon's favorites and he recommends it to all ping obsessed growers!
These Pinguicula have a winter succulent dormancy phase and will be much smaller in winter. They will resume normal growth and size in spring. Please check the last photo in the line up to see a dormant plant.
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
