    what are some tropical mexican pinguicula that NEVER form winter succulent leaves?

    i want to search for mexican pinguicula that dont form succulent leaves and are carnivorous year long, any sugestions? i want something tropical in a sense that likes being in a humid environment( sorta like a jungle butterwort) any species?

    D'amato says there is little difference between winter and summer growth of P. reticulata and some people say agnata, although in the one I grow the winter leaves are not carnivorous.

    Both of those go fully dormant for me Mach. The only one I have that doesn't is P.moctezumae.

    Actually, P.hemiepiphytica doesn't go into full dormancy for me either.
