Pinguicula cyclosecta is a Mexican Butterwort native to a small area between Nuevo León and Tamaulipas where it grows on limestone walls. It was first collected in the 1930’s and was formally described in 1963. When grown under intense light, P. cyclosecta is easily recognized by its beautiful bluish-green and violet colored leaves.
