    How do you water your Mexican pings?

    Do you water them from overhead or from the tray?

    I usually tray water. Once or twice a month I'll water from overhead. Overhead watering seems to encourage moss growth in the pots. Like pingman, I'm not a fan of moss growth with my Mexican Pinguicula.

    I perform both.

    But then I have moss growth with some of my pings. I don't like it either...
