Pinguicula macrophylla is a rather unusual species of butterwort native to Guanajuato, Mexico. It produces large oval carnivorous leaves at the end of long stalks (petioles) in the summer and during winter, grows a bulb-like bud of dormant leaves. Pinguicula macrophylla prefers a well draining mineral-based substrate and partially shaded conditions.
Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant in its carnivorous state about 1.5 inches across or a plant in its dormant state about 0.5 inches across. Currently most plants in dormant bud form. The plant will be 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 Mixin 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.
