    The smallest Pinguicula flower in the world!

    At least, it LOOKS like it could be.

    My P. lusitcanicae are blooming right now, and I happened to catch one actually open. And after a half-hour of fighting with my less-than-awesome camera, I was able to produce these. If you have any pictures of this plant, don't hesitate to add!!

    How small is it actually?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Sorry about that. Just checked, and the length straight across is only about 5mm (about a fifth of an inch)!

    Very small but not the smallest.

    I have in mind P. crenatiloba :
    flowers extremely small, 1.5-2mm long
