Pinguicula 'Titan' is a hybid of two Mexican butterworts. The seed parent is Pinguicula
agnata (scented flower form?) and the pollen parent is an unidentified Pinguicula collected near Guanajuato, Mexico. A possible moranensis, this pollen parent has flowers similar to gypsicola, and forms underground hibernacula, sometimes over 1/2 inch below the surface. Pinguicula 'Titan' can grow to over 6 inches across, and is a registered cultivar (registered 17.7.1987 by Leo C. Song Jr.). The plant in the image is growing in a 3 inch pot. Sale plants are smaller. As do Mexican Pings generally, it prefers
loose, open soil. We use an all mineral mix which contains an aquatic planting medium based on arcilite, a common clay-based mineral used in soil-less planting mixes. Also includes silica sand and a very small amount of iron oxide. Another good mix is composed of 1 part each of peat, sand, vermiculite, perlite and pumice.
Shipped bare root, carefully wrapped in damp sphagnum.
