Pinguicula gracilis is a tropical-heterophyllous butterwort from Mexico described for the first time in 1988 by ZAMUDIO. It is a tiny plant forming summer rosettes of 3 cm in diameter (in cultivation), while the winter rosette is smaller and consists of non-carnivorous leaves. Flowers do appear out of the winter rosette. Keep the plants like other tropical-heterophyllous Pinguicula from Mexico, which means moist to dry soil and cool temperatures in winter and wet soil with warm temperatures in summer.
