Pinguicula “Yucca Do 1717” | Butterwort


Out of stock

The “Yucca Do” complex is a fun one and we’re still working on collecting all of them. There are up to 7 different plants in total (1712 through 1718) that were wild-collected in Mexico in the mid-90’s by Texas-based Yucca Do Nursery and then introduced into the Atlanta Botanic Garden library. The numbers are an abbreviation of a more complicated system. “Yucca Do 1717” is almost certainly a part of the Pinguicula esseriana complex but its exact identification is still uncertain. Under intense light, 1717’s leaves can flush into a pinky bronze color while the thick leaf edges will remain light – creating a unique, contrasting display. It seems that 1717 does need seasonal temperature and/or light fluctuations to flower. The plant you will receive will be about 1″ in diameter.

We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

Brambles Botanicals is run by a husband and wife team, Howard and Beastie Bramble, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We’re small-scale, hobbyist growers selling the extra plants that we just don’t have any room for and have a range of experience – specialize in carnivorous plants, especially tropical butterworts and their hybridization. We have been producing our own Pinguicula hybrids for a few years now and are excited to be releasing some brand new, named, in-house cultivars as well as some age-old classics and species. Howard is the proud registrar of Pinguicula ‘Faulisi.’ (See Volume 51, No. 3 of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, published September 2022.)
