Pinguicula pilosa is a new species (2003), and is one of the Mexican butterworts, apparently in the P. agnata complex of Pinguicula. It was discovered by Alfred Lau, although it has been in cultivation under various names since approx. 1984. Mexican Pings prefer a 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.
