    Oddly enough, moctezumae seems to like lfs or peat in culture, but in the wild, it grows on limestone rock.
    So, it stays carnivorous all year?

    I'm actually thinking about getting one now.

    Very nice pinguicula Jim!
    If I may add my experience here, the fact is that P. moctezumae does go dormant when growing in the wild. It creates thicker and shorter spear-like small leaves which are carnivorous. In the culture it is very rare to get dormancy, but my specimen goes dormant each winter. Here is a pic of what it look like now, entering dormancy. I grow mine in sandy mix of peat and dolomite powder.

    Klasac: Do you grow your exclusively inside? Do you cut back on the photoperiod, only, or do you somehow get a lower temperature?

    Jim, I grow her inside but close to window where she gets decent temp drop at night. So for winter she gets colder environment and also the photoperiod is cut to 10hrs. This is not neccessary but she is placed next to tuberous sundews terrarium getting diffused light from there. BTW the reason why the old leaves are missing is that I used them as explants for TC. Good luck growing your wonderful plants! :-)

    That's pretty much what my plants get. - near a window, reduced photoperiod.
