    actually Starman the Mexi Pings i have are kept wet year round. my humidity is not much higher than Josephs. we get more rain here on average than he does but not by much. you have to remember deserts can get cold too.

    Joe,
    This particular one is planted in 90%, 30 grit silica sand and 10% small coral particles of about the same size as the sand.

    The first one I ever saw, in person, was at the "Plant Shop and Botanical Garden" in Reseda, CA. I thought it was a Drosera. Of course this was before I even knew of Pinguicula gypsicola.

    Here is another angle of the same plant:

    Judith Finn at UC Berkeley Botanical Garden gave me one. I didn't want to kill it and passed it on to Peter D'Amato. He killed it instead, but not until a fairly successful three season growing lesson. His mistake was going on a short vacation, and letting someone other than his partner take care of it. Judith was very good with the Mexi-pings.
