    Can you post a picture? I would be keeping a minimal amout of water for the next several months and lower the temps bit. A south-facing window sill woud be good. An airy mix of soil media is recommended.

    Are those gravel does a good job with wicking water to the surface? It is hard for me to get sphagnum moss for me.

    I'm using APS. It's great for drainage. Mexican pings don't need their roots to be moist all the time.

    I grow mine in substrates composed entirely of mineral mixtures (this was inspired by Eric Partrat of Pinguicula.org) - no organic ingredients at all, except Trichoderma harzianum inoculum and dried, ground, insect powder. You can read about how I grow Mexican Pinguicula --> here and here.
