This is a new hybrid from 2021. It’s beem done numerous times with red laueana and this is the first time we’ve crossed anything with our new “Tangerine” laueana! This is a nice, easy plant for beginners and it should bloom frequently, even with lower light levels. The flowers are orangey-pink.
We like this cross so much, laueana “Tangerine” x emarginata “Zacapoaxtla”, that we’ve nicknamed it “Plum Puddin” because it’s good enough to eat! We grow several clones with some floral variation but all of them fall under this nickname.
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
