    Which Mexican Pinguicula remain carnivorous year-round?

    To my understanding, there are a few Mexican Pinguicula that grow year round. For example, Pinguicula Agnata doesn't produce dry succulent leaves and will remain carnivorous year round. Same with Moctezumae and Emarginata.

    Are there any other Mexican Pinguicula that remain carnivorous year round?

    There is P. gigantea too. I have grown P. "sethos" year around too.

    ........My P.agnata went dormant and creates dry leaves.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Yes, P. agnata produces non-carnivorous leaves in Winter, given 'normal' conditions.

    P. 'Sethos' will produce succulent leaves. I have seen this myself.

    Actually, I have had my P agnata for 3 years now and it has never formed succulent leaves. I think it depends on the variety you are talking about.

    I had Pinguicula 'Aphodite' for 3 years and never needs dormancy. Plus others that have been mentioned.
