So I have two Pinguicula and was told their name is Pinguicula 'John Rizzi'. Now I have been looking all over to see how to take care of them and all I've been getting are brief descriptions but nothing more and since I know almost nothing about CPs I'm kinda wanting more. :P So do these lovely, little things have a scientific name that I can use to get more care info? (or better yet you want to give me some )
This is pretty much what I have now:
Butterwort (Pinguicula) - Temperate Varieties
•Keep soil damp at all times. Leave pots in a shallow tray or saucer of water.
•Use rain water, distilled water, or tap water with low mineral content (like Hetch Hetchy water in the SF Bay Area.) If you use bottled water, make sure that it has NO sodium added.
•DO NOT fertilize your butterworts with traditional fertilizers. Butterworts get their nutrients from the sun and insects, and their root systems are very sensitive to fertilizers.
•Grow your butterwort in partly-sunny conditions. They can be grown outside in most climates, on a sunny windowsill, or under fluorescent lights.
•Butterworts are perennials. They flower and grow in spring and summer, and will slow-down or stop growing in winter.
•Transplant every few years in a mix of 50% peat moss and 50% sand or perlite. This is best done during winter. Make sure there is no fertilizer in the soil you use.
