This butterwort has long, green succulent-like leaves with rounded tips. It grows slower than other Mexican butterworts, but when it reaches flowering maturity, it takes off and produces lots of leaves and multiple side shoots.

    I can’t say enough how well packaged these plants arrive in. Mine is already blooming pretty purple flowers and I’ve only had them about a month or so..

    The plant arrived nice and healthy and has since caught many vinegar flies (I swear bananas just go bad at the blink of an eye)
