(60 customer reviews)

Pinguicula ‘Pirouette’ is a complex hybrid of P. agnata and P. (moranensis x ehlersiae). The leaves can be anywhere from green to bright pink depending on light intensity. It is a vigorous grower and prefers a loose substrate. Please note: Some plants are more green on arrival but will turn pink with time under intense light. 

*This plant ships bare root*

Add prepackaged soil mix?


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant about 1 inch 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.

Growing requirements

Mature size: About 2 inch in diameter
Light: Partial to full sun or grow light equivalent
Soil: Mexican Butterwort Potting Mix, sand and perlite mix
Feeding: Feed bugs, dried bloodworms, fish food, or diluted foliar fertilizer such as Maxsea every 2-3 weeks
Humidity: 50-80% with adequate airflow
Water: While in its carnivorous phase, provide enough distilled water for the media to remain damp. Reduce watering and allow the media to dry out regularly once the succulent rosette begins to form.
Temperature: 55-85°F
Dormancy: Technically none, however carnivorous leaves are replaced by a smaller succulent rosette for part of the year

Planting and adjustment instructions will be included with your shipment.

    This plant hasn’t been doing so well. I’m doing exactly what the seller says to do but not looking so good.

    The plant came in very good shape and after 5 days it is already putting out new leaves.

    The Ping came exceptionally well wrapped and in very good shape. The nice size Ping perked up and is a happy camper. I am looking foward to get Ping to the color in the picture. Right now it is darker.

    Just purchased this, and a lovely Huahuapan (which is just the cutest little ping). Unfortunately there was a delay in shipping (fault of the shipping company, not Curious Plant) but even with the extra day in transit, they both came in wonderful condition. Super delighted and when I reached out with some questions? I had a wonderful experience, Elizabeth was really helpful and informative! The Pirouette is absolutely stunning, the color is beautiful and this ping so much bigger than I thought even with the other reviews and pictures!
