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.

Description

Pinguicula, a.k.a. Butterwort, is a genus of carnivorous plant that is divided into temperate species and tropical (often referred to as Mexican Butterworts) species.  Temperate species endure cold winters by producing a dormant bud (hibernacula) during winter.  Tropical species endure dry winters by producing a “succulent like” non-carnivorous leaf.  However, some tropical species and hybrids will grow carnivorous leaves year round if they are kept warm and wet.
