Pinguicula moranensis var. alba is a white flowering butterwort which is found 25 km from the town of San Cristobal de Las Casas in Oaxaca. As do most tropical Mexican Pinguicula, it prefers 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. The image shows the flower of a young plant.
