Pinguicula gigantea var. alba Potted

Pinguicula gigantea var. alba Potted

$ 18.95

As you might expect from the name this is the largest of the Mexican butterworts.  The semi erect leaves make it the tallest too, on top of being able to grow at least 6 inches across. It is also the only species with sticky glands on the undersides of the leaves.  This variety has white flowers.

Please note; the plants we are sending are smaller than the one in the photo.

Care Instructions
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
