Pinguicula moctezumae x gypsicola


(2 customer reviews)

This Pinguicula moctezumae x gypsicola hybrid is a cross we created here in the nursery. The leaves resembles P. moctezumae most closely, however they develop a bronze hue under strong light.  The flower lobes are slightly more narrow than P. moctezumae and the color is an intense pinkish purple. P. moctezumae x gypsicola prefers a loose mineral-based substrate that drains easily.


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant about 1.5 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.
