Description Pinguicula 'Esseriana
The butterbur (Pinguicula Tina): The fat leaf is an 'innocent-looking' plant, but it belongs to the carnivorous plant family. The butterbur has large 'fatty' leaves and a beautiful purple flower. The carnivorous plant (like all carnivorous plants) uses its leaves to lure, catch and digest prey. Small sticky drops form on the leaves of the Greasy Leaf. Once stuck to the leaf, the insect will not come off again. It is great fun to have in your home and it catches several insects for you.
This species of Pinguicula 'Esseriana' is native to Mexico. This species has many leaves on top of each other and is very compact. With a lot of light, the leaves of this species will even grow 'pink'. A cute, but deadly plant for small insects in your home.
