    mexican pings do not which is what you have. its leaves may get smaller in the winter but other than that it will grow year round

    I don't think cold dormancy is required as P. agnata is from Central America. It probably shouldn't be in a terrarium, though; Pings don't generally need the high humidity that terrariums provide. They do just fine in household conditions with bright light. Even though this Ping doesn't need a cold dormancy, it may still need to experience a winter season with shorter days (and maybe slightly less water.)
    Good luck!

    I almost lost all of my Mex. Pinguicula growing them in a terrarium. All picked right up once I moved them to an open air environment.

    It can be done but since this is a Mexican ping that you are trying to grow in Mexico, I'd think you be able to grow it with the tray method with out a problem.
