I have quite the collection of carnivorous plants now thanks to Sarracenia Northwest. I recently got my first Pinguicula (I can almost pronounce it, pretend I did ok?) and it came wrapped lovingly with not a speck of dirt disturbed. It’s now in my window with all of my tropical pitcher plants and is growing fast. Thank you to everyone at Sarracenia Northwest for doing what you do, and doing it well.
This is one of the most stunning butterworts in our collection. It features a rosette of lime green leaves with dark purple edges. Like most Mexican butterworts, it will goes dormant in winter for 2-3 months as a way to deal with the dry season. When the rains return and daylight hours increase, it resumes normal growth.
