Also called "Butterworts." Pinguicula actually looks pretty for a carnivorous plant. Its succulent leaves arranged in a circular manner, like that of a rose flower. But beware, each fleshy leaf is a death trap for insects.
Here are some basic tips:
1. Watering - *Tray method / system to keep the soil permanently wet with frequent overhead watering.
2. Light - Full to part sun. If kept indoor, need to be close to a window as possible. A windowsill or tabletop right next to a glass is the brightest place in a room.
3. Feeding - accepts small insects such as gnats, fruit flies, small ants or occasionally apply bits of dried insects to their leaves.
4. Fertilizers - occasional with very diluted acidic fertilizer.
*Put pot in a tray with enough water (preferably rain or distilled) to wet just the bottom part of the pot.
