This Pinguicula rotundiflora x gypsicola hybrid is another Curious Plant creation. The elongated leaves display a nice mix of both parents and develop a lovely pinkish tinge under strong light. The flowers are large and appear to resemble those of P. gypsicola more closely than those of P. rotundiflora, although the petals are wider and slightly more pink. P. rotundiflora x gypsicola prefers a loose mineral-based substrate that drains easily and forms a compact rosette when dormant.
