Good quality carnivorous plants can be tricky to find. A good grower is the first thing to look for when purchasing plants online. Unfortunately it can take a bit of trial and error when finding a reputable nursery. Each have their own species they specialize in, and depending on the shippers location, the plant might be adjusted to that locations environment. I’ve tired many gowers during the years, below are a couple of the ones that have filled the garden.
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.
