Pinguicula ‘Florian’ is a hybrid between P. debbertiana and P. esseriana. The butterwort was registered as a cultivar in 2004 and is named after the breeder’s oldest son. P. ‘Florian’ produces leaves that become an intense shade of red under strong light. This plant prefers a loose mineral-based substrate that drains easily.

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.
