    It could very easily be Pinguicula ionantha. I received my start of them from just such a venue.

    I also once found P. lutea in one of those pots,...but I would say it's one of the two guesses that have been mentioned(not including Bugweed's).

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I guess we'll just have to see if it produces plantlets on its leaves and/or see flowers. I have only seen primuliflora at Lowes, but I only have limited experience.

    What's wrong with my guesses, Joe?? I spelled them right! Need a flower. Very helpful. P. primuliflora has a pinkish-purple flower, purple throat. P. ionantha has a white flower, purple throat. I realize there are variations in both. As was mentioned, keep an eye peeled for plantlets.

    Yes, I am going to repot it later on this evening. I just can't get to it right now as I need to go back outside.

    P. primuliflora

    That's all that is sold in those plastic cubes at lowe's.

    Is that a plantlet toward the back and left, emerging from a leaf?

    you don't need a flower to ID that one.
