Product info

Pinguicula planifolia is a carnivorous plant that grows in the temperate, warmer states of North America. It lives in the wettest and poorest flats that are flooded part of the year. Often no grass or other (carnivorous) plants grow on these flats. In order to obtain nutrients, the plant catches insects on its leaves which are covered with droplets of sticky liquid, a lot like nectar. As soon as an insect lands on it, it sticks and the enzymes digest it. The nutrients are stored in a rhizome. When a leaf breaks down, it easily forms a new plant, which makes this plant easy to propagate. It thrives easily in the living room.

Plant care

It is important to pot carnivorous plants from temperate regions in a poor soil: pure garden turf, sometimes broken up with some coarse sand. Make sure that Pinguicula planifolia is very wet by putting it in a saucer of rainwater. Because the plants normally stand on plains where it's very sunny, it's important to give them enough sun, direct or indirect.
