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.

Arrived in perfect condition and is doing very well!

My new addition seems very happy guarding my African Violets from pesky little


My new addition seems very happy in my East facing window with my African Violets which sometimes encourages small gnats. It arrived in perfect condition due to excellent packaging. May add to my collection eventually!

5 of 5 Perfect plants! December 22, 2019
Reviewer: Britt from Omaha, NE United States  
About a month ago I received two pinguicula. The plants arrived in excellent condition with a pamphlet on how to care for them. They are both doing well and have caught a couple gnats before their transition to winter leaves. At the moment my Pinguicula Aphrodite is about to bloom!
