Regular price $6.95 Sale

Insects beware! The sticky leaves of the Pinguicula primuliflora trap nagging pests. When the Butterwort sends out a beautiful purple flower, you'll forgive its unfortunate common name, and you'll know Shakespeare was right: "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." 

Light: Full to slightly filtered sun.  

Soil: Prefers high humidity and requires moist, acidic soil with very little fertilizer. Place a tray of water underneath to keep it wet constantly. Does very well in Canadian peat.

Zones: 10-13


Damaged leaves? Sometimes in shipping, a leaf will turn black and die, but never fear; it's still healthy and will grow new leaves.

Plant size. We ship our carnivorous plants in 2-inch-deep pots when they are 2.5 to 6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
