Other notable characteristics
Pinguicula gypsicola can be found naturally growing on dry gypsum cliffs in Mexico. They have adapted to this dry climate by remaining in a dormant, succulent state during the winter. Lucky for us, this tightly-packed dormant rosette of succulent leaves is freaking adorable to observe. Even better is the ability to gently pull these leaves from the mother plant as a means of propagation – as one would with any other kind of succulent leaf pulling.
Many of the photos featured on this Pinguicula gypsicola profile are courtesy of Matt Byers of Carnivore Culture. Even my plant, seen in a few of the photos, is from Matt. He has a particularly special, award-winning clone of it in his collection, and for sale in the Carnivorous Plant Resource Marketplace, here.
