Pinguicula Gigantea Flower

by ironjaws » Fri Mar 11, 2016 11:14 pm

Hey all! So my first P. gigantea I managed to kill and had to get myself another one. I have had my new P. gigantea for, I don't know, about a year maybe and it has finally flowered! I understand there are two types of P. gigantea, a purple flower and white flower form. Guess which one I've got...

Awesome! Apart from the leaves having dew on both the top and bottom sides, does it look like the petals also have dew?

Ahh, that's what they are! I need to get myself a macro lens, or at least a stronger magnifying glass.
