couple questions about Mexican butterwort
Hello. I just bought a Pinguicula xSethos. I have some questions about it:
1) How big will it get?
2) How often will it flower?
3) The leaves are curling down which raise the plant out of the soil. How do I stop this?
4) How much light should I give it?
5) When do I let it go into it's winter dormancy?

In our collections it will normally top at out at about 1.5". It should flower once a year, coming out of its dormancy and will do so if allowed a cold and relatively dry winter period. An unheated room by a sunny window sill works well because it allows for both a natural reduced photoperiod and a drop in temperature. 40's & 50's would be good. That covers lighting and dormancy. Leaf curling is normal. I would recommend removing the bottom layer of leaves and attempt leaf cuttings.
