Butterworts are typically easy to grow and variable plants from very different environments worldwide. Tiny tentacles on their leaves give them their name (the genus translates to "Little Greasy Ones") and capture prey, and most are grown particularly for their flowers, which are often orchid-like in appearance and very colorful.

P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' x esseriana Clone C flower.jpg

P. moranensis 'Huahuapan' x esseriana Clone C -$14

The third clone of this Carlton Carnivores original cross is similarly compact like its siblings, maxing out at around 2-2.5" in diameter, with the tight overlapping rosette of ovular leaves bearing folded edges making for sharp-tipped points like Clone A, though somewhat more triangular. Coloration like the others is typically bright green, with hints of pink though may blush deeper depending on soil and lighting. Flowers have the broadest petals of the three clones, almost rounded when first opening and distinctly ovular when fully open. Color ages from a rich lavender-violet to lavender pink, slightly darker bicolor blushing right at the very petal tips discernible and occasionally mottling of the petals visible, and upper petals are darker than the lowers and the grape-colored "halo" around the throat narrow and concentrated primarily at the bases of the upper petals. Some distinct striping of the deeper purple is also visible by the edges of the yellow palate.

Currently available plants are young rosettes between 0.5-1.5" diameter.

P. sp. Tonala ANPA A x emarginata Clone A flower.jpg

P. sp. Tonala "ANPA A" x emarginata Clone A -$15

The first select clone of this homemade hybrid, developing rosettes up to 2" in diameter with bright green ovular leaves that occasionally develop red blushing at their bases. The flowers are odd, with angular, mildly serrated petals that bear the faintest hints of violet veins and the bright purple central spots of the ANPA A parent on a white background. 

Available plants are approximately 1-2" in diameter.

P. laueana x gigantea.jpg

P. laueana x gigantea SG -$15

A seed-grown cross with a great deal of potential; plants are hovering around an inch in diameter on average right now, but once mature may well push over 6" across with thick, ovular red-flushed leaves. I expect flowers to be varying shades of rich purple, and moderately sized between the tiny blooms of gigantea (ironic) and the huge flowers of the laueana parent.


P. gigantea x laueana.jpg

P. gigantea x laueana SG -$15

A seed-grown cross with monstrous potential; plants are around an inch in diameter right now but will likely be able to push 6-8 inches once mature. With gigantea as the seed parent this cross may have a slightly greater size potential, with broad ovular leaves that will flush red in good light, and flowers are likely to be moderately sized with varying shades of rich purple. 


P. 'Aphrodite' flower.jpg

P. 'Aphrodite' -$16

This is the true cultivar, an elegant slender-leaved plant that can grow to more than 6" in diameter with a splayed rosette of arching semi-erect almost succulent leaves shaped almost like fingers. Under good light it may range anywhere from green tinted at the tips with pink to a rich pinkish purple through most of the leaf. Flowers are large, with broad rounded petals and a rich pink-purple coloration that changes tones as it ages.

Available plants are semi-mature, between 2-3 inches in diameter. Due to the plant's nature it can be fragile, and leaves may pop off readily in transit and when repotting (can be used to propagate however).

P. emarginata x moranensis 'Huahuapan' Clone A flower.jpg

P. emarginata x moranensis 'Huahuapan' Clone A -$15

One of the select clones of a homemade hybrid, these small but highly colorful plants produce rosettes that appear to max out at no more than 2 inches across, with highly curled, ovular leaves that are bright green edged or sometimes flushed with red shades. The flowers of this particular clone develop up to 3/4" tall, with an interestingly mottled to faded look to the purple overall color, marked by highlights of darker violet blotches or veins through the flower or petal centers.

Available plants are semi-mature to mature, approx. 0.75"-2" in diameter.

P. emarginata x moctezumae.jpg

P. emarginata x moctezumae -$14

A cross with a lot of beginner potential and high moisture tolerance; these seedlings are young, but already showing very elongate leaves with pale pinkish tinting at their bases and tips, and the flowers will likely be a range of pink and purple hues, especially marked with darker veins. Full size is unknown, but likely will be 2+ inches across.

Plants are currently approx. 0.75-2" diameter

P. sp. Tonala ANPA A x moctezumae.jpg

P. sp. Tonala "ANPA A" x moctezumae -$16

This brand-new homemade cross is already showing signs of being extremely vigorous with a truly unique appearance. Though young, many of the seedlings are already pushing several inches across with extremely slender, bright green leaves with blunt tips. Flowers are an unknown, but with the bright pink and then purple-and-white of the parents, I expect highly patterned mauve and purple flowers with exaggerated lower petals and dark highlights by the throat.

Available plants are approx. 1-3" in diameter.

P. moctezumae x laueana.jpg

P. moctezumae x laueana -$15

A homemade version of a rather classic cross that never disappoints. These seedlings are young but already showing signs of being spectacular, with elongate but sturdy looking leaves that readily flush with shades of red and pink, and the flowers similarly expected to be brilliant shades of pink and magenta. 

Available plants are approx. 1-2" in diameter.

P. gigantea x moctezumae.jpg

P. gigantea x moctezumae -$13

This is a chance to gain a seed-grown version of a cross that has already been proven to produce spectacular monsters. With both parents being tolerant (or ever preferring) higher moisture levels and more organic soil than other Mexican species, this cross is a good beginner type and can produce elongate, succulent leaves in rosettes that may exceed a foot in diameter, topped by flowers in shades of pale pink-mauve to purplish.

Available plants are young, approx. 1-3" in diameter.

P. gigantea x rotundiflora.jpg

P. gigantea x rotundiflora -$14

A cross between a giant and a miniature, this homemade hybrid has a great deal of potential to make moderately sized but highly tolerant plants with round leaves curled at the edges and just maybe with tints of red on the undersides, likely between 4-6" across. Flowers are an unknown, but will most likely take after both parents with mostly pale petals but sporting darker lavender or purple tints along the edges and right around the throat.

Available plants are approx. 1" in diameter. 

P. (rotundiflora x gracilis) x moctezumae.jpg

P. (rotundiflora x gracilis) x moctezumae -$14

This is a homemade cross of complete mystery potential for me, already showing some ttruly unique leaf shapes but with maximum size unknown and the flowers full of different potential. I expect the plants to max out at around 3-4" across, with extremely slender leaves fattest in the middle whose tips sometimes curl distinctly and may tint with red at the edges. Flowers are predicted to be shades of pale pink to purplish but darker at the edges and around the throat.

Available plants are approx. 0.75-2.5" in diameter.


P. (rotundiflora x gracilis) x emarginata -$14

A complex cross with a lot of potential, this will be a compact but hopefully vigorous hybrid. Plants aren't mature yet so full size is not yet known, but estimated between 1-1.5 inches in diameter with semi-spatula shaped leaves of light olive green with red highlights along their edges and center. Flowers may also be quite variable, likely to inherit the ragged edges and veining of emarginata but may end up more rounded as like rotundiflora or with exaggerated lower lobes of gracilis, or a mix of all three equally.

Available plants are young and seed-grown, currently 0.5+ inches across.

P. rotundiflora x emarginata -$13

Another new homemade cross, this simple hybrid should turn out small but colorful, with rosettes between 1-2 inches across with heavily curled, spoon-shaped leaves flushed in off-green with red highlights. Flowers could be variable, extremely white with faint veins or heavily patterned in various shades of violet or pink with rounded but ragged-edged petals.

Available plants are young and seed-grown, currently 0.5+ inches across.

P. emarginata x rotundiflora -$13

This homemade cross with likely favor emarginata as the seed parent, potentially growing slightly larger than the reverse cross but with similar size between 1-2 inches in diameter with spatula or semi-ovular shaped leaves with heavily rolled edges, colored in muddied green with redder highlights near the leaf edges and base. Flowers will likely be mostly white with variable amounts of red or purplish veins or throat patches.

Available plants are young and seed-grown, currently 0.5+ inches across.

P. 'Pirouette' -$12
A classic hybrid that is supposedly a complex agnata x (moranensis x ehlersiae) cross, though looks near-identical to my straight moranensis x ehlersiae...strong light can make them turn pink, but they always have rosettes up to 4 inches across with broad leaves bearing thick curled edges and a slightly paler underside. Flowers are big, bright mauve-pink with darker highlights right near the throat.
2 medium-mature plants at around 2-2.5" in diameter currently available.


P. emarginata x sp. Tonala "ANPA A" -$15
Two seed-grown plants being released, the first from this side of the cross that I've offered. Plants don't seem to get much more than 2 inches in diameter though could possibly get bigger given the space, with bright green leaves bearing sometimes reddish-purple edges or bases, and flowers from the siblings are various forms of bright white with hints of vein around rich purple highlights near the throat.
Both available plants are between 1.5-2" in diameter.

P. gigantea x esseriana D flower.jpg

Pinguicula esseriana x gigantea HC D -$15
The first time this clone is being released, a very classic looking glowing green plant with thick, curled-edge leaves that fold out like many a succulent does into a layered rosette. Flowers are a rich double-tone, deeper purple in the center fading to lavender at the tips of the petals, and over time the color will pale to a brighter mix of magenta and pinks. So far they've maxed out at around 2 inches across for me, but might be able to get bigger up to potentially 4 inches across.
Available plants are approx. 2 inches in diameter.
