Pinguicula "Ysi"

Size: Small
Sale price$39.99


Pinguicula "Ysi" is an in-house hybrid of P. gigantea and P. cyclosecta. This hybrid was created by Ed under Rainbow and we selected this particular clone from the seed batch because of its outstanding purple veining and dark coloration. P. "Ysi" turns dark/purple under intense lights and has reached up to 2.5-3" in diameter, when is not under strong lights it can reach up to 4-5". However, this pinguicula beauty come out under strong lights, so we recommend using full spectrum lights for the best coloration possible, we have also noticed that the purple veining and color is n more intense during winter. The name "Ysi" was chosen to honor my mother Ysidra for all the love, care, and wisdom she has given our family.
