This butterwort is known for its unusually large, deep pink flowers. Pinguicula 'John Rizzi' is a hybrid of unknown parentage, and was named by Peter D'Amato. It grows in rosettes of round, green leaves. Pinguicula 'John Rizzi' can grow well at room temperature on a sunny window. The surfaces of the leaves and flower stems are covered with droplets of glistening adhesive. Insects become stuck to these surfaces, and are then digested. These plants specialize in catching gnats, fruit-flies, and other small insects.

These plants are currently 1.5-2.5" across. They will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough high-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it.
Product Details

great plant, bad shipping April 7, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from marietta, GA United States  
The plant itself is in excellent condition, and the packaging was great as well. The reason this review has 4 stars however, is because I wish that predatory plants would make it more clear that they only ship Monday-Wednesday. It took 6 days to process but only 4 days to ship. Otherwise this plant is excellent and I would recommend it

Ping 'John Rizzi' April 5, 2017
Reviewer: Q bones from Phoenix, NY United States  
First of all the Pinguicula John Rizzi is dormant being that I bought it during winter. The plant I received was about a half inch across. The Ping had 3 little plantlets with it. I was able to divide them and ended up with 4 butterworts altogether. It was packaged really well with enough dry sphagnum moss to plant it.
