    Interesting as this species is found growing on limestone. You would think basic conditions would suit them better than acidic. They might do even better with hard water. But yes, you want them wet.

    HABITAT:
    According to the Author, Pinguicula moctezumae grows on calcium carbonate concretions, in the stream bed or walls with water drainings, on wet limestone slope (I think it is Tufa) at altitudes of 900 to 1100m.

    I grow mine in mineral substrate based on dolomite CaMg(CO3)2, in almost powdered form (90%) and peat and it grows just fine. P. moctezumae is not very picky about the substrate as long as she gets pure water, good light and elevated rel. air humidity. (From my experience) Very nice pictures, BTW! :-)

    I'll probably get a Moctezumae to replace my Drosera Graminifolia that just died.
