This rarer, slightly smaller variety of Pinguicula gigantea produces an entirely white flower that is also larger than the typical gigantea variety’s flower. 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.
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.
We have a few medium-sized plants available that are over 2 inches across.
