This brand new cultivar released in 2024, Pinguicula x “Figgy Pudding” was already a staff favorite and then we saw the winter succulent rosettes! There’s something truly adorable about the way these little succulent rosettes mound up and how they transition from a bright green to a dark red under high light. We still haven’t flowered this hybrid so you can be the first to see it flower! Be sure to send us photos if it does! Even though it hasn’t flowered, we felt we could release it on the beauty of its rosettes alone!
These plants have a winter succulent phase in which they shed their carnivorous leaves and grow smaller succulent leaves. They greatly reduce in size, shrinking down to a tiny, cute little succulent rosette! If you order in winter, you plant will come in a tiny succulent rosette. But don’t worry, with proper conditions it will soon grow much larger carnivorous leaves and surprise you with its fantastically quick growth!
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED; YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
