Another one of Damon’s botanical quests is to make ping flowers so bright and vivid that they hurt the eyes. He’s made quite a few already, but this one is the pinkest-of-pink neon pinks! No picture of the flower could possibly do it justice, because, in person, they literally look like they’re backlit by ultraviolet light!
The plants themselves are also perfect; compact, red margined, and pointy leaved. The hybrid itself is mesophytica x (laueana “fuchsia” x emarginata).
This plant is so spectacular and so bright pink that we decided to name it for one of our best friends and mail order Queen Tiffany Brainard; who’s constant buzzing energy keeps all your plant orders coming to your door.
THIS PLANT WILL NOT COME POTTED, YOU WILL NEED TO POT IT UPON ARRIVAL. MEXICAN/TROPICAL PINGUICULA PREFER OUR SANDY PINGUICULA SOIL MIX.
