    I've read a lot of different opinions about Pinguicula dormancy. I have, so far, gone with letting the plants tell me when to withdraw water, and in my situation many of them either have never, or do not reliably, produce succulent growth in the winter. Do you stop watering all together in November? Are your plants in natural or artificial light?

    Bonjour

    all my mexican are in dormancy ,I stop watering in november , completely for the filiform ( except P.moctezumae ) ,for the others just slightly moist to avoid desiccation

    I will soon rehydrate gradually to leave them outside as soon as the frost will be gone by mid May (home)

    now they are in my garage, in front of a south window with an addition of artificial light when the weather is too dark, to 9 -12c , but from mid may outside .

    I have saved uninfected plants in the same pot by repotting and using an appropriate (and commercial-grade) fungicide, but resort to just throwing out the infected ones ASAP.

    And since you'll definitely be repotting to get rid of the infected soil, use something with less peat and better drainage.
    I took 12-15 leaf pulls, and I am getting near 100% strike rate. I identified this infection early, which may have contributed to my success with the leaf pullings.
