Pinguicula moctezumae


Pinguicula moctezumae is a beautiful species of butterwort native to Hidalgo and Queretaro, Mexico. To supplement poor environmental nutrition, the leaves produce sticky droplets via a series of glandular structures which serve to trap and digest insects. P. moctezumae prefers a well-draining media.
