Pinguicula ehlersiae is a species of butterwort native to Hidalgo and San Luis Potosi, Mexico. It forms carnivorous leaves in the summer and succulent leaves in the winter and prefers a loose substrate. In its carnivorous state, Pinguicula ehlersiae forms “drool edges” on its leaves so that dew and trapped prey won’t slide off.

*This plant ships bare root*

Add prepackaged soil mix?


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant about 0.5 inches in diameter, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. If selecting with soil mix, you will receive a little over one cup of our prepackaged Mexican Butterwort Potting Mix in addition to the bare root plant. This quantity of soil is roughly enough to fill one 2.5 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch square pot.

Growing requirements

Mature size: About 1 inch in diameter
Light: Partial to full sun or grow light equivalent
Soil: Mexican Butterwort Potting Mix, sand and perlite mix
Feeding: Feed bugs, dried bloodworms, fish food, or diluted foliar fertilizer such as Maxsea every 2-3 weeks
Humidity: 50-80% with adequate airflow
Water: While in its carnivorous phase, provide enough distilled water for the media to remain damp. Reduce watering and allow the media to dry out regularly once the succulent rosette begins to form.
Temperature: 55-85°F
Dormancy: Technically none, however carnivorous leaves are replaced by a smaller succulent rosette for part of the year

    FIrst time ordering, and won’t be the last! Everything shipped much quicker than expected. (Next morning after my order the night before) Arrived VERY well packaged, and both plants did fine on arrival.

    First 2 pics are day 1, last is about a week and a half later, after acclimation period.

    You can see the rosette is opening and actively growing.
