Pinguicula medusina was thought to be a form of P. heterophylla until 2000 when it was given species status. The butterwort has the ability to produce small plantlets at the tips of its carnivorous leaves as a means of self propagation. P. medusina is native to Oaxaca, Mexico near Laguna Encantada where it grows on gypsum. During winter, the plant forms an underground bulb.
Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. Plants in carnivorous form are 1-2 inches across and dormant bulbs are about 0.25 inches across. 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.
