Pinguicula Macrophylla | Butterwort

Pinguicula Macrophylla | Butterwort


Out of stock

Pinguicula macrophylla is a desired and yet challenging butterwort, but well worth adding into the collection. The species likes to go aggressively dormant, forming a tight rosette of non-carnivorous leaves and should be kept fairly dry when in this stage. When in active growth, the plant has ovular shaped carnivorous leaves that keep a light yellow-green color with a noticeable vein down the middle, and would appreciate being wetter or in a mossy mixture.

The flower of p. macrophylla is what makes the critical care worthwhile; boasting a beautiful blue-purple hue lobes, with a white “tongue” like stripe flanked by dark purple spots near the throat.

We would consider this an intermediate-advanced level plant.
