Pinguicula “Molango” | Butterwort

Pinguicula “Molango” | Butterwort


Out of stock

To the best of my 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 me 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.

From a cultivation perspective, I think 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 plants we are selling are 1-2 inches across and just starting to produce their first flowers!
