I am not sure where this clone originated, but I obtained it from noted Pinguicula grower Helmut Kibellis in Sydney. It is a very strong grower, producing flushes of pitchers in spring and early summer. Last year, it ended pitcher production with the summer equinox. This is probably the most prolific coppertop clone grown in Australia.
