This is a wonderful little species that almost looks like a little succulent. Pinguicula esseriana has tight rosettes are rarely bigger than a nickel that blush pink when grown under high light. and the light lavender flowers are just adorable. This species stays delicate and tiny, never growing larger than a nickel! A must have for the butterwort collection.
