    What species of Mexican butterwort is this?

    I really like this Mexican butterwort, but I don't know what species (or hybrid) it is. Anyone know?

    Difficult to discern without a flower, but it looks like one of several varieties of Pinguicula moranensis distributed by several CP nurseries. This is not an identification, just a guess. Most often flowers are necessary to make positive identification of plants.

    I have seen this photo before. It used to be on a vendor website so it may be copyrighted. It was the photo they used for Pinguicula 'Pirouette' (no longer listed on their website).

    Hope that helps.

    yes, i remember seeing this pic somewhere too, but wasn't sure where it was from seeing that you say P. 'Pirouette' (Ispanhan) i think im going to have to agree with that now, comparing it with this pic...

    if this is a P. 'Pirouette' they do look almost identical

    From what I've read, one of the parents of P. 'Pirouette' is P. agnata. I read that P. agnata doesn't form a dry succulent stage and stays carnivorous year-round.

    Will P. 'Pirouette' remain carnivorous year round, or will it form a dry succulent stage?

    I don't remember my P. 'Pirouette' ever going into succulent growth. It's a great looking ping with a nice dark pink color. Here is a older pic of one that split after flowering.

    Whoever told you that was lying

    This plant will got through a succulent phase. I have yet to meet a Mexi-Ping that did not do a succulent phase at some point.
