Pinguicula sp "Köhres" (Koehres) is a rare species of Mexican butterwort. Producing one of the most orchid-like flowers, it is one of the butterworts that always invites the response "That's carnivorous???". 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. The image shows a mature plant. The plants for sale may be smaller, not yet blooming size.
