General Description
 
This plant is relative new in cultivation. Its leaves have an unusual shape - broad and succulent-like with a pointed tip - likely the result of its complex parentage, Pinguicula medusina x (moranensis x ehlersiae). In bright locations, its leaves turns dark pink.

In winter, this plant will drop its large leaves and produce a rosette of smaller leaves. It will remain in this dormant state until late spring.

My Marciano came in perfect condition, as always. I took advantage of a promotion and also got Aphrodite as well. Both are growing really well under lights. Thank you for the awesome plants!

Marciano is particularly handsome. I'm very happy to have him join my green family and would love to have more. It's exciting to have a carnivorous plant!
