Pinguicula flowers have stared to bloom! This little carnivore has taken a little over two years to flower. A beautiful purple and pink shade that rise a few inches above the rosette. The planter medium is filled with a mixture of sand, vermiculite, perlite, peat and pumice.
Purchased from Cascade Carnivores, pinguiculas are great little carnivores to add to your garden.
