Pinguicula elizabethiae x agnata “Mesa Leon” was introduced in 2021. We’ve named this batch “Bebop Lollipop” for the fun flowers that look like happy little lollipops!
We always love it when the flowers match the plant, and this is one of those hybrids. The lime green, round, overlapping leaves beautifully complement the metallic pink or white, lightly scalloped flowers. This is our first elizabethiae hybrid!
There are several clones, and they have some variations in flower color from purple to pink to white, but all have the characteristic scallop-shaped petals. In winter, they die back to a smaller, succulent bud but will grow carnivorous leaves again Spring-Fall! If you order in winter they will be smaller than the pictured because of the succulent phase.
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
