Mystery rock kit Pinguicula bundle

Regular price $39.99

Options

Only 8 in stock

Pinguicula means "little greasy one" in Latin. They are commonly called butterworts or "pings" by some growers. They grow throughout the Northern Hemisphere, but a vast majority is concentrated in México, with some species located in South America.

Pinguicula's leaves are coated in microscopic glandular hair that secrete sticky mucilage. These glands have the ability to capture sunlight, giving the leaves a glittering, shinning appearance that may attract insects. Most of Pinguicula's victims are small gnats, fruit-flies, or springtails. As soon as butterworts catch their prey, their sessile glands start to release digestive enzymes to dissolve their victims, then the sessile glands reabsorb this fluid rich in nutrients.

 

In this kit you'll get a porous rock (not the exact same that is in the picture), soil mix, a heavy-duty saucer (10" in diameter), and some SMALL Butterworts randomly selected. Make sure you select the right Ping's quantity option. We have four options:

Option 1 (Rock kit, No plants): You'll get a random porous rock, soil mix, and a 10" heavy-duty saucer (NO PLANTS included in this option, please read before ordering).
Option 2 is the rock kit + 5 small pings.
Option 3 is the rock kit + 10 small pings.
Option 4 is the rock kit + 15 small pings.

Due to the size and weight of these kits, they have to ship in a Large flat rate box. Unless you live in California, please select that option at check out.



This is a perfect gift for someone you care or to start your very own Pinguicula collection. This bundle is NOT customizable. (No special requests, no exceptions)


Please note that some Butterworts are greener than others but will turn reddish/pink under bright/intense full spectrum lights. They might also be a bit different in shape and size.



The plants are about 0.5 inches across (about the size of a dime), sometimes bigger, but expect 0.5" plants in this rock kit.

By purchasing this pack you agree with the terms and acknowledge that have read the plants' description about the size and the different options presented to you.


Please read: In this pack, you'll get 10 mystery SMALL butterworts (This bundle does NOT allow you to select your own plants, all plants will be randomly selected, no exceptions). Butterworts are about 0.5 in diameter, these are small sets, please read before ordering. If you desire an adult/mature Pinguicula, please buy the plants individually.

Carnivorous Plant Butterworts- The plants in the pictures are representative only. You will also get plants that are probably not in the pictures. [Plants are not flowering at the moment]

The plants are shipped bare root in a plastic container to protect the plants. We ship the plants on Monday and Wednesday to avoid the weekend cutoff.

These plants are about 0.4-0.6, depending on the Pinguicula.

PLEASE READ BELOW: ▼ ↓ ▼
