Pinguicula Gina

(48 reviews)
This is one of the most beautiful butterworts we've encountered. It has a tight rosette of large, broad green leaves. The leaves are very sticky and captures lots of gnats, mosquitoes, and fruit flies. The plant can grow up to 5 inches across. It also looks like a flower until you see it produce an actual flower. It's like a flower within a flower. Butterwortception!

    As advertised

    Plant came quickly in the mail, packaged well, and has so far thrived on a diet of fungus gnats. Would order again. In fact, probably will.

    Posted by Michael Muller on August 15, 2016

    Beautiful rosette - cute as the picture. Sorry aphrodite, but Gina is cuter and more shapely. I love the size, about 2" across as it fits my windowsill. Was packed to perfection which she deserves. Growing well, 1 month later in same pot is was shipped in. The leaves - so round and cute.

    Pretty plant, packaged well

    Posted by Valerie on June 6, 2016

    The Pinguicula x Gina arrived safely and was packaged so well that it didn't look like it went through shipping. It was also a very pretty plant, just as described and looked like the picture that was on site. Will be looking to purchase more pinguiculas in the future.

    perfect plants, perfect packing

    Posted by Angie on January 4, 2016

    once again, the packaging was a work of art. The plants arrived in great shape, and have been thriving, sending out new growth. There are already bugs stuck to the Pinguicula, and I didn't even know I had any.
