    This makes me feel better about mine. It was doing well, for a while, or OK at least. Eventually it has died back to small green rosettes. I have left it for dead therefore have not been watering it. So I guess I am unintentionally doing the right thing, I hope.

    I just don't think I have ever provided it with ideal conditions though. Maybe when I start watering it again, I'll try getting better lighting.

    I lost mine! It continued to decline and I lost it. I'm going to see about getting another one and putting it in different mix.

    So mine is clearly in dormancy, I've let it dry out completely and I can even see the bulb barely beneath the surface of the soil, it's nice and green, and quite large I will also say.

    I probably don't want to try bringing it back yet, but I really have always been puzzled by Mexican Butterworts and their specific requirements.

    Dry season: Does this mean winter? Or summer? Should it be dry and cool, or dry and as hot as possible?

    I don't know what season corresponds with what humidity. When a P. medusina is growing, should it be treated like a steamy tropical plant? (Lots of ambient humidity, and warm temps) Or could it just live in simple house plant conditions.

    I really really like P. medusina, and when it was big and growing, it was a beautiful plant, with plantlets on most leaves. I really don't want to lose this Bulb I have to poor conditions.

    Please give me some advice. (I'm searching the web too)
