Carnivorous Butterwort Pinguicula Tina 8cm pot

Pinguicula, commonly known as the Butterworts is the perfect addition to your indoor jungle, especially if you have a fungus gnat issue! These delightful plants are known for their carnivorous qualities, as they use their sticky leaves to trap and digest insects. Not only is this an interesting feature to watch, but it also makes the Pinguicula an excellent natural solution for getting rid of pesky fungus gnats.

The Pinguicula is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal care. It thrives in bright sunlight and prefers to be kept moist at all times. Its compact size makes it an ideal plant for small spaces.


Pet Friendly


It’s important to note that when caring for your Butterworth plant, you should only use distilled or rainwater if your tap water is full of chemicals. This is because the plant is sensitive to chemicals and minerals, which can harm its delicate root system.

Please not add any plant food or fertilizers to your Pinguicula. The plant is adapted to nutrient-poor environments, and adding plant food can actually harm the plant. Instead, let your Pinguicula catch its own food by trapping insects with its sticky leaves or take energy from the sun like other plants.

When repotting your Pinguicula, it’s important not to use regular plant soil as it may be too rich for the plant. Instead, use a special carnivorous plant soil mix that is free of nutrients and provides the proper drainage the Pinguicula needs.

As your Pinguicula grows, you may notice that the bottom leaves turn brown and die. This is a natural part of the plant’s life cycle, and you shouldn’t worry about it. Simply remove the dead leaves to keep your plant looking healthy and happy.
