General Description
 
This is one of the most beautiful butterworts we've encountered. The plant is a cultivated variety of Pinguicula zecheri x agnata. It has a tight rosette of large, broad green leaves. The leaves are very sticky and captures lots of gnats, mosquitoes, and fruit flies. The plant looks like a flower until you see it produce an actual flower. It's like a flower within a flower. Butterwortception!

It eats the bugs September 24, 2018
Reviewer: Darcy Leidolph from Houston, TX United States  
In Texas small flying insects are a constant whenever you have plants. These were a suggestion from a fellow who keeps a greenhouse full of carnivorous plants to use inside the house he was not wrong. Good houseplant indeed

As advertised November 18, 2016
Reviewer: Alice Bain from Salt Lake City, UT United States  
Plant came quickly in the mail, packaged well, and has so far thrived on a diet of fungus gnats. Would order again. In fact, probably will.
