    Nice pics Jim.

    Out of curiosity are your straight ups growing in sphagnum?

    Finally someone replied! Yup, they're in LFS. They're different than the Mexican ones that want the alkaline soil. I didn't realize it but I was killing a perfectly good plant when I was treating it like the others.

    So ya finally got them moctezumaes to grow, Jim!.

    I kept mine too hot + too humid and they rotted out. I'm thinking of trying it again, however.

    By the way, did you have a lot of success with moctezumae pullings? What was your procedure?

    Ah ha! So that is why mine expired with such eagerness! I'll have to give them another shot, this time with LFS.

    I haven't tried moctezumae (straight up) pullings but the cross with gigantea worked even with the long summer leaves hanging out of the pot, flopping over. You can see them in this picture:



    P. moctezumae is so much different in cultivating than any of the crosses I've had.

    I have a question about Pinguicula Moctezumae. How exactly does it go "dormant"? Does it form a succulent stage like P. Moranensis, or does it form an under-ground bulb like P. Medusina? Or does it keep carnivorous leaves all year?

    Just like P. emarginata, P. moctezumae does not go dormant at all. That's one of the reasons its unique.

    Oddly enough, moctezumae seems to like lfs or peat in culture, but in the wild, it grows on limestone rock.
