Pinguicula laueana “CalCarn Red" BARE ROOT

$ 19.99

We have run out of stock for this item.

This was the Pinguicula laueana "red" that was originally collected by Alfred Lau himself!  It is also probably the best!  Not only are the flowers too red to look at, way redder than our other laueana "red", but the leaves are also insanely dark red!  Grow it under lots of light to see how beautifully red it can get.  This is a very special butterwort and we have a limited quantity. These are small sized plants.

THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL.  MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
