Pinguicula “UFO” (“Unidentified Flowering Organism”) | Butterwort


Out of stock

Each Pinguicula “UFO” is a genetically unique plant grown from seed produced by a Pinguicula laueana “Tangerine” that was pollinated by an unknown butterwort or butterworts. Since this series’ exact genetics are a mystery, we named them “UFO” which stands for “Unknown Flowering Organism.”  Howard suspects that there is some Pinguicula ‘Faulisi’ pollen in the mix because of some stand-out, larger flowers that this cross has produced presented ruffled, pink petals. In contrast, some of the smaller flowers that we’ve seen this series produce remind us of Pinguicula ‘Seductora,’ or laueana x emarginata – it’s possible some emarginata pollen may also have been introduced. We have also recorded that this plant goes in and out of dormancy frequently, but have not discovered a specific cadence that fits all plantlets. The plant you will receive will be between 1″-1.5″ in diameter.

We would consider this an intermediate level plant.
