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.”
