    P. x "Sethos" - Healthy?

    Hey Everyone,

    I've had my P. x Sethos for a month now and trying to figure out if it's doing well, or if more light may be required. It's put out a bunch of small rosette-like leaves. When it arrived in the mail it had very nice, broad/elegant leaves with a light pink tint. The newer leaves are smaller, but still look carnivorous as they are sticky. Here are a few photos. What are your thoughts?

    It looks like it is dormant. It will resume larger growth in the spring. For now, keep it dry.

    Yes, it looks like it is in transition from carnivorous leaf stage to succulent leaf stage. The succulent leaf stage is not a true dormancy as the plant is still actively growing. Some will even flower during this phase.

    Nice dormant plant!
    Half of my mex pinguicula are still dormant.

    You can surface your soil with perlite.

    Looks just fine for this time of year. I suggest you add some perlite to your soil mix, too.
