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. When fully mature, the plant can span 8 inches across.

Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Size: 8 inches across when mature.
Sunlight: Dappled to partial sun. Avoid hot sunlight.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: 1 part peat moss, 3 parts perlite.
Temperatures: Tolerant of cool temperatures but always protect from frost.

• Juvenile plant, acclimated for windowsill growing.

    Excellent buy

    This is such a cool plant. It arrived well packed and in very good condition. I bought two different plants and both have earned their keep in terms of fly catching.

    Mexicam Butterworts

    Posted by Ramon Nelson on March 1, 2015

    This Butterworts cane in great condition and is a GREAT ADDITION to my other Butterworts. Both Butterworts were a lot larger than I had expected after having bought them when I first started of another dealer --- those died from their size and my lack of information before buying the 3 Carnivorous Plants tapes.

    Has been in excellent shape since arrival, and happily lives in a intermediate terrarium, at about 66 at night and 79 during day--fluorescent lighting.
