This Pinguicula 'Hanka' was actually purchased from PetFlyTrap using my winnings from the Southern California Carnivorous Plant Enthusiasts (SCPPE)"Holiday Nepenthes" photo contest! The winner was my Nepenthes Ipu 'Princess Mashed Potatoes' wearing an elf hat. I had been eyeing this Pinguicula for a while and was hoping that it wouldn't go out of stock before the contest was over. Luckily I snagged the very last one! I can't wait for it to settle in and produce those gorgeous ruffled blooms this particular cultivar is so famous for. Right now it could stand to gain a little bit of size first. I arrived potted so I was able to simple place it on my south-facing windowsill! Thanks PetFlyTrap!
