Pinguicula rotundiflora x moctezumae is another hybrid we created here in the nursery. The leaves are long like P. moctezumae but wider like those of P. rotundiflora and develop a reddish hue under strong light. Flowers are medium to light pink in color. P. rotundiflora x moctezumae prefers a loose mineral-based substrate that drains easily.
