General Description
 
Alfred Lau was a botanist who researched and discovered many Mexican butterworts in the wild. This particular plant was one that he discovered in the wild and remains unidentified. It potentially is a form of Pinguicula gigantea or a natural hybrid with it. It has large, broad, slightly wavy leaves at full size, and grows very quickly. It seems to grow well without a dry winter rest if the soil is moist and the lighting is bright throughout the year.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot and is expected to reach flowering maturity in 1-2 seasons. All plants were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.
