Pinguicula moranensis J
Pinguicula moranensis J is one of the Mexican butterworts. It forms summer rosettes of flat, succulent leaves , which are covered in mucilaginous (sticky) glands that attract, trap, and digest insect prey. In the winter the plant forms a non-carnivorous rosette of small, fleshy leaves that conserves energy while food and moisture supplies are low. Single pink, purple, or violet flowers appear twice a year on upright stalks. The butterwort plant is a passive trapper, which means it doesn’t actually use movement to snare its prey.
We recommend planting this plug in our Pinguicula soil.
