    Farout! I've melted this species before, had no idea it was xerophytic!

    Do these come from a desert climate?

    Have you got them potted in pure APS?

    Ironically, J.C. initiated a topic that advocated growing Mexican pings wet, year-round.

    I used to keep them wet year round for about 4 years.
    It works well for most mex pings but a dry period seems to work also.
    now I don't water as much.

    My guess is since they need a dry spell they take what they can from the air.. That is what humidity is, amount of water in the air.

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    yeah i would imagine they are getting moisture from the air, the roots seem to be growing out everywhere similar to many of the epiphytic orchids which use that method of capturing moisture...
