One of our all-time favorites; tiny little Pinguicula ehlersiae stays dainty and petite, blushing pink under intense light. The flowers extend on long stems from the small rosettes like a magic trick.
We are now producing several clones of ehlersiae. This clone is far and away our largest. It can get as big as a fifty cent piece! It has long stemmed, pink flowers.
We love this giant form of ehlersiae so much that we’ve given it a name; “Mighty Mouse” because it’s tiny, but mighty and the flowers remind us of little mouse ears. (We formerly sold these as ehlersiae “Giant”.)
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
