Pinguicula laueana “Mariposa" BARE ROOT
Pinguicula laueana is one of the most beautiful of all butterworts. The rosettes themselves will blush pink when grown under high light and the elegant flowers always have an exceptionally long nectar spur that practically sticks straight up. The flowers come in many colors.
This is a spectacular laueana from Damon’s breeding program and is a new release for 2023! These colors can be so hard to describe; it is vivid coral, pinky orange color. We love it because it is very full flowered and whereas most laueana flowers have solid color patterns, this resembles the wing of a monarch butterfly with delicate venation and varying panels of color.
These plants have a succulent winter phase and will be much smaller when ordered in winter but will soon grow vigorously again in spring!
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
