The Frazer's Beaut Butterwort, Pinguicula moranensis, is an easy Mexican butterwort. It is a vigorous grower with large magenta flowers, and red tinted leaves. Its large sticky leaves can form rosettes about 3+" across. It prefers damp, loose, peaty soils, and open shade, with wet Summers and dry Winters. It forms larger, sticky carnivorous leaves in the Summer and smaller, drier, non-carnivorous, succulent leaves in the Winter. It blooms in Spring and Fall with 1-5+ magenta flowers. It responds well to warm, wet Summers and drier, cooler Winters. This Mexican Butterwort cultivar is an excellent house plant, doing well on window sills, plant carts and greenhouses. They perform great in a terrarium. It is artificially propagated from leaf pulls.
