    It doesn't look too wet to me but it does look very green. I think it needs more light. I would look to the crown. Is there new growth that isn't blackening? I would also remove the 3 brown leaves and the take leaf cuttings of the 2 leaves that are browning at the tips - in a separate pot, with fresh media.

    another thing to keep in mind is how the person before you was growing it i grow my Mexi's quite wet, to the point if i sent someone one and they immediately tried keeping it fairly dry it would likely keel over quite quickly cause some of my plants have almost no roots cause they get their moisture from the high humidity air underneath the rosette and not from the soil itself for the most part......so they will rapidly shrivel up if dried out with out a slow acclimation.........im sure the reverse is quite true aswell.......

    Well, my Pinguicula officially rotted away to nothing. It was fun while it lasted. Whenever I grow Mexican pings, they always die within months. I'm just not good with them.
