Butterworts are Carnivorous Plants in the genus Pinguicula. They grow on every continent except Australia and Antarctica. There are two basic types of Butterworts: Temperate Butterworts that endure cold winters and Tropical Butterworts that endure dry winters.
Temperate Butterworts survive winter by forming a set of small leaves that shield the growth point from the cold. There the plant rests as a little ball in the dirt, barely noticeable, until warmth returns.
Tropical Butterworts survive the dry season by producing a set of small non-carnivorous leaves that are very resistant to drought. There are however some that remain carnivorous year round, such as Pinguicula gigantea.
All Pinguicula are shipped bare root wrapped in moss and are offered with or without a pot and soil.
