Pinguicula, or more commonly known as butterwort are carnivorous plants. The name in Latin means “little greasy one” that refers to the oily texture of the trapping surface of the leaf. Some carnivorous plant enthusiasts have grown so fond of their “little greasy one” that they affectionately call them “Pings”. They are fairly easy to grow and typically grow in a rosette fashion of a few inches in diameter.
