Pinguicula ‘Sethos’


Pinguicula ‘Sethos’ is a hybrid of P. ehlersiae and P. moranensis. It is similar to P. ‘Weser’ which is also a hybrid of P. ehlersiae and P. moranensis, the main difference being floral markings. P. ‘Sethos’ was registered as a cultivar in 1998. It is thought to have received its name after an Egyptian pharaoh. The leaves can be anywhere from green to bright pink depending on light intensity. It prefers a loose mineral-based substrate.


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant about 1 inch in diameter, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. Plants are more green at the moment. 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.
