    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    To the best of our knowledge, this particular butterwort was collected somewhat recently by Fernando Rivadavia from around the Mexican town of Molango in the state of Hidalgo, making it quite rare in collections. It produces beautiful purple flowers with even deeper purple markings where the petals meet, but the real reason to grow this butterwort is for its leaves - they’re lanceolate-shaped with distinct, cupped margins that fade as the leaves become equally distinct petioles, the latter of which is rare amongst butterworts. The distinct petioles remind us of Pinguicula acuminata but “Molango’s" actual leaves aren’t as broad. “Molango’s" leaves also flush a gorgeous mottled pink with darker, purple venation but in contrast, the center or rib of the leaf remains green. It’s important to note that while in active growth, Pinguicula “Molango” likes being potted in a mossy mix that’s kept quite wet at all times. “Molango” will go extremely dormant at which time it must be kept much drier. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. We would consider this an advanced level plant.

    A Brambles Botanicals-named Mexican butterwort hybrid bred by Ben Siebenaler in Portland, OR. The cross for Pinguicula “Pastel” is agnata “Red Leaf” x mesophytica #2. Even under intense light, Pastel’s mostly green leaves will barely produce any sort of coloration. The flowers have friendly, round lobes that are slightly lavender-colored and will fade to mostly white as the flower ages. This is a pastel even Morticia Addams could love! The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner-intermediate level plant.

    A new, in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Doily” is cyclosecta x ‘Faulisi’ #8 (of 11.) Aptly named because it produces pink, round, ruffled flowers that reminded us of the decorative coasters we would see around our grandparents’ homes; additional flower features are purple-veins and white markings close to the throat. This is an adorable cultivar that is still new to market very rare in collections. The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this an intermediate 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.

    An in-house Brambles Botanicals hybrid, Pinguicula “Starburst” is agnata “Red Leaf” x rectifolia (CROSS # 21065). This series produces a lot of variability in both flowers and leaves. We named this series “Starburst” because all of the flowers appear to have an explosive appearance, sometimes with imperfections like Tie-dye patterns or mottling that reminded us of astronomical events unfolding— but also the candy, particularly because this series’ glistening leaves often have a pinkish hue that makes the plants look like candy. The mother plant, agnata “Red Leaf,” is known for producing blood-red leaves under high light, due to increased anthocyanin (pigmentation). The father plant, rectifolia, has dramatic, purple flowers with slight ruffles which makes for an endlessly versatile combination when mixed with agnata “Red Leaf’s rounder, whiter flower. Each plant is genetically unique, seed-grown, and one-of-a-kind! The plant you will receive will be between 1"-1.5" in diameter. We would consider this a beginner 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.

    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.
