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!

    Pinguicula x Gina

    Posted by Unknown on November 1, 2014

    I've had my plant for a few months now and it is beautiful! I grow it on a south facing windowsill, and it grows very quickly and catches a gnat every once in a while. It also grew a flower stalk and produced stunning flowers!

    Very excellent shape and is growing very well. It's nice and green. It sits on my windowsill. It gets just the right amount of sun that is required. I'm very satisfied.

    Very Pleased

    Posted by Richard on June 4, 2014

    I purchased one of these back in April 2014. It arrived in very good condition. Catches lots of gnats for me which is great. This plant keeps producing new leaves rapidly. Just this morning I already noticed a flower stalk in the making deep within the center of the plant!
