Pinguicula primuliflora is a popular species in cultivation. In nature, it is found in coastal areas of the Florida panhandle west into Louisiana.  It forms a handsome rosette of pale-green, pointed leaves up to four inches across.  The plants are often found in mostly shaded areas of very wet peat and sphagnum, often along the edges of streams and ponds.  While the plants are short-lived and prone to rot, they spread by producing plantlets at the tips of their leaves.  Keep them shaded from hot sun.  The beautiful flowers have incised petals that are pinkish violet with a white center and a yellow beard.

Butterwort plants can be grown successfully in captivity with the right care and conditions. Here are the general steps for growing butterwort plants in captivity:

  1. Choose the right container: Butterwort plants are small and don’t need a lot of space to grow. A shallow pot or container with good drainage is ideal.
  2. Use the right soil: Butterwort plants prefer a soil that is well-draining and porous. A mixture of peat moss and perlite or sand is a good choice.
  3. Provide the right amount of light: Butterwort plants need bright, indirect sunlight. A windowsill that receives a few hours of direct sunlight in the morning or afternoon is ideal.
  4. Water properly: Butterwort plants prefer to be kept moist, but not waterlogged. Water them regularly, but make sure the soil is not saturated.
  5. Provide humidity: Butterwort plants prefer a humid environment. You can provide humidity by placing a tray of water near the plants or by using a humidifier.
  6. Fertilize sparingly: Butterwort plants do not require much fertilizer. You can use a diluted, balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season.
  7. Watch for pests: Butterwort plants can be susceptible to pests such as aphids and spider mites. Check the plants regularly for signs of infestation, and treat them promptly if necessary.

By following these steps, you can grow healthy and thriving butterwort plants in captivity.

    Good evening!

    I’m just wanting to know if I did this right. These guys didn’t have much, if any, roots. When I took them out of the paper towel they kind of fell apart in my hand. (I only ordered one of these) So after I moistened the medium, I just set them in there and pushed it down a little bit. Will this be ok?



    Thanks for your time!



    From Staff: Your setup is perfect. Just place your plants in sunlight and wait for them to triple in size in the coming months!
