    Another variety of the red-flowered Pingicula laueana, the “CalCarn Red” or “California Carnivores Red” has rounder, slightly ruffled flowers compared to the flatter, more rectangular petals of the typical form of laueana. We would also say the flowers may be ever so slightly less red. It is believed that Alfred Lau gave California Carnivores this variety directly. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    Pinguicula laueana "Red" is one of those must-have plants. This is the only butterwort with a truly red flower. The leaves produce varying blushes and dark red venation. It’s also a great hybridizer that produces incredible offspring. Honestly, that this plant even exists and is in cultivation is a wonder to me. Pinguicula laueana "Red" was collected by the famous botanist Alfred Lau in 1973 and named after him in 1989. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    This cross #21038 really highlights the colors of both pinguicula lauenana parents. The seedlings have an array of color combinations; some much darker and some staying much lighter. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The leaves are mostly rounded, some being a little more oblong than others. The coloration tends to vary between a lighter pinky tone with purple-pink margins, to deep red coloration with “green pits”. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    This unique cultivar of Pinguicula laueana produces flowers that are less intensely red and slightly more faded-looking, appearing orange or salmon-colored. There also appears to be more variability between plants, perhaps because “Tangerine” comes from a California Carnivores cross between two different laueanas: red x fuschia, creating a stunning, new, genetically-unique variety of laueana. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner level plant.

    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.

    This gorgeous Mesoamerican butterwort species is a little bit different than many of the other butterworts we have for sale.  In the mountains of northern Central America it grows as an epiphyte, so it prefers a mix with moss and/or bark. In our experience, it also prefers to be kept more wet than many other butterworts.  If grown in ideal conditions, Pinguicula mesophytica can flower all year. The flowers are vivid with a distance white stripe and round petals; the upper lobes give the flowers the appearance of having Mickey Mouse ears. A great hybridizer, mesophytica is also the pollen-parent of a couple of our favorite crosses, “Peach” and “Pastel.” The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant.

    This fun cross #22037 produces cute spindly plantlets. It is also the same cross as Bob Beer’s pinguicula “Pink Moon”. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The leaves are thin, long, and bright yellow-green in color without seeming to color up at all even under high light. We would consider this to be an intermediate level plant.

    This particular variety of pinguicula moranensis is found 25km outside of the town of San Cristobal de Las Casas in Oaxaca, Mexico. This plant produces almost pure white flowers, save for its yellow throat, and large neon yellow-green leaves that don’t color up much even under high light. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. During dormancy, pinguicula moranensis var. alba will have a tight, rich green rosette with small, slightly pointed leaves. When in active growth, the plant can get quite large with bigger, flatter carnivorous leaves. We would consider this to be a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    This interesting cross #22005 has not yet given us a flower, but we suspect it will turn out a bright pink like it's parent p. hemiepiphytica with swooping petals. So far, the seedlings have come out with a pretty pink hue to their leaves and a darker, curled margin like p. potosiensis 'Giant' and can have an aggressive dormancy. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate level plant. *p. potosiensis flower credit to pinguicula.org off a Google search

    This species has earned the common name of “primrose butterwort” for the beautiful, overlapping, multi-lobed flower it produces similar in appearance to a rose. This amazing plant will also produce plantlets from the tips of established leaves, but needs warm temperate conditions to be happy. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The flower has a powdery blue-purple hue to it, paling out towards the edges, with   peek-a-boo “yellow pits” between petals. The foliage will be a rich yellow-green, low growing and triangular in shape. Pinguicula primuliflora “Rose” is a wetland loving ping from the Southern US, wanting wet and warm conditions to be happy.
