    I have a ques. about P. gypsicola x moctezumae. I know that P. gypsicola has to be dry during most of the year but I don't know about the hybrid. When in the year it has to be kept in a dry condition and when in the year it has to be in a damp condition? Right now, it's in a damp condition ( The only healthy ping from hailstorm)?
    Boo!

    I don't have this specific plant but all my other gypsicola hybrids have a marked difference between carnivorous and non-carnivorous growth.

    And now to throw a monkey in the works. With my moctezumae hybrids the moctezumae parent seems to impart the perpertual carnivorous growth and they never need to dry out.

    I would say the best thing to do is watch the plant for cues. If you notice a switch then start to dry it out. When it goes back to carnivorous then start watering it again. If you never see a switch then keep it wet.

    So I guess what you really have is a waiting game. see what it does and then play it as needed.

    You might want to shoot a line to the BestCP guys. I seem to recall they have had this plant on their list for a couple years now so they should know the answer for sure.

    Generally, the plants will form a pronounced winter rosette, so you it would be best not to keep them too wet during the winter. I made a cross of this myself and the resulting plants vary in their degree of the winter rosettes(some form rosettes almost like gypsicola while others are more like moctezumae with gypsicola influence).

    I got that ping last winter. I kept it in a bone-dry soil, then, after my ig crushed my ping and almost died, I added little water and it seemed it liked it. So since last month, I kept in a wet condition.
    Boo!

    I rarely, if ever, let any of my Pinguicula dry out, including the one mentioned in this post. I keep them wet nearly all the time.
