    Pinguicula esseriana is a tropical species that produces a tight cluster of  small leaves and never gets very large.  P. esseriana produces non-carnivorous "succulent like" leaves during the winter.  In nature, P. eeseriana grows in semi-arid steppes and has a broad range, extending through several states of Mexico.

    The origins of pinguicula “Jerry P.” are unknown, and seems to be a mystery around most forums. However, it is still a beautiful plant that propagates relatively easily by leaf pullings. The plant you will receive will be between 1.5”-2” in diameter. The leaves of the plant, when mature, are long and slender with a rounded end; giving the plant an almost chrysanthemum appearance with its shape. It colors up a soft, blush pink with the center staying more green even under high light.  We would consider this to be a beginner-intermediate level plant

    Pinguicula gigantea is a tropical species that has the largest leaves of any Pinguicula. Sticky glands are not only present on the top of the leaves but also on the bottom, which is not common among Butterworts.  P. gigantea grows continuously throughout the year if provided warm, wet conditions.  It does not go dormant like many other tropical Butterworts do.   In nature, it grows on vertical limestone walls in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

    Known from just one location in Oaxaca, Mexico, Pinguicula gigantea or the Giant Butterwort is the largest butterwort yet discovered. In ideal conditions, they can grow to be as wide as a dinner plate!  Pinguicula gigantea is also fairly unique in that it produces carnivorous mucilage on both the surface and underside of its leaves and like to be kept wetter. It also doesn’t go dormant, so it produces sticky, carnivorous leaves all year. The flowers are a beautiful purplish that starts to fade towards white as the flowers age. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. Gigantea is also a fantastic hybridizer, producing pollen and seed if manually pollinated. In our experience, this plant is usually at its largest in the fall or winter, flowers in the winter, and then divides in the spring.

    Native to the Mexican state of Nuevo León, the graceful, diminutive Pinguicula gracilis is a delightful little carnivorous butterwort that loves to divide and multiply. It’s an easy grower that produces white flowers with a larger lower central lobe that also features a greenish-yellow spot near the throat. The typical gracilis’s flower stalk can reach over 2 inches tall, but this “Stalkless” variety rarely produces any visible stem, so the flowers open between the leaves of the plant itself! The plant you will receive will be between .5"-1" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula gypsicola is a tropical species that has unusual carnivorous leaves for a Butterwort in that they are linear.  P. gypsicola produces carnivorous summer leaves and non-carnivorous winter leaves.  During winter it requires much less water and care should be taken not to over water them.  During winter it should be treated like a succulent with infrequent watering.

    This in-house cross #21018 presents like a pretty typical gypsicola, as would be expected. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. These seedlings have a pinkish tint to their tentacle-like leaves, staying a pale green towards the center, with fine white hairs. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    Pinguicula gypsicola x sp "Köhres" (Koehres) is a Mexican butterwort hybrid that is essentially a less expensive and more easily grown Pinguicula gypsicola, albeit with slightly broader leaves. The plant’s father, sp "Köhres" (Koehres), is believed to be Pinguicula gypsicola x moranensis, so there’s a lot of gypsicola genes in this cross. We believe the cross came from Oliver Gluch initially. It's a fun, easy hybrid with long, thin carnivorous leaves and gypsicola-like purple flowers. Under intense light, the leaves produce purple coloration along the margins of the leaf base creating an even more visually complex plant, especially around the crown of the plant. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    Cute, small cross #20001; vigorous grower much like their parent p. seductora with a light green leaf, some with "purple pits" between them. This hybrid has not given us a flower yet, but is expected to be pink with apparent veining on the lobes. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant. *p. seductora flower picture credit to Curious Plant off a Google search

    Pinguicula koehres (gypsicola x moranensis?) x gypsicola has long, rather wide summer leaves with dark leaf margins.  The flowers are an attractive dark purple with a large white patch in the center of the bottom lip.  It has a dormant period where it produces small non carnivorous leaves

    Pinguicula kondoi is a wonderful Mexican butterwort with strikingly veined white flowers and colorful, thick little leaves. There is some confusion and controversy over whether kondoi is synonymous with and should be referred to as reticulata, but for now the debate is still open and kondoi appears to be the most generally accepted name. That is also what was on the tag of the original plant that we received. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.
