BUTTERWORT (Mexican): Pinguicula Gigantea x Moctezumae

  • R300.00 ZAR


  • An easy growing, vigorous cross between two Mexican Butterworts, Pinguicula Gigantea x Moctezumae
  • This hybrid has long, chartreuse, succulent-like leaves and produces large, bright pink flowers
  • Mexican butterworts are fantastic candidates for a sunny windowsill and very popular amongst succulent fans and indoor plant growers.  As they are easy to grow, these are excellent plants for beginner carnivorous plant enthusiasts
  • Cultivo is all about choices and our plants are available in various sizes to suit your every need.  These are medium to near-flowering size plants with very shallow roots and fragile leaves.  For this reason they will be sent already potted in our deluxe carnivorous plant soil. Simply unwrap, water and enjoy! 
    • Winter dormancy:
      • During the autumn and winter months, butterworts die back significantly to a tight rosette with tiny non-carnivorous leaves, making them appear much smaller than listed
      • Larger growth (sizes as indicated) in the form of new summer leaves are expected during late spring
      • Should you be unfamiliar with this plant species, head over to our FAQ section for more information on what to expect when ordering from us during the colder months >> Temperate plants and winter dormancy:  What to expect

  • Potted Plants
    • You will receive a well established potted plant
  • Shipping
    • Plants in the pinguicula family generally have very shallow roots, hence your plant will be sent already potted
    • We take great care in shipping procedures and butterworts are carefully packaged and protected to minimise damage
    • Note that plant members in the pinguicula family are quite fragile and may lose some leaves during transit
    • While packing your plants we always take the necessary precautions, however, due to the shallow root system, your plant might dislodge during shipping
      • Should this be the case, simply repot your plant with the leaves at the soil level and lightly firm the soil around roots

  • Grow butterworts in partial sun or very bright filtered light and keep the soil only damp to the touch, year round
  • Great for beginners, mexican butterworts are easy to grow and fantastic candidates for a sunny windowsill or protected area outdoors with moderate to bright light
  • To prevent rot, pinguicula prefers a loose, open soil with a good balance between water retention and drainage.  We use our Butterwort PROmix for all our mexican butterworts, with excellent results
