    Pinguicula martinezii

    Smallish rosettes on this fairly hardy plant. These came through the nasty little double whammy we had early in the year. Two cold spells with a warm spell in the middle. That's a killer for many plants.

    The plants in non-carnivorous mode on Dec 26th. Flower buds just waiting to go.

    There was no flowering until late April but I think it was worth the wait.

    Then the carnivorous time and the large glands

    This is today.

    They look healthy to me.

    How dry do they like to be during "dormancy"? Mine is small, but healthy, currently fully carnivorous, but I haven't had it long enough to see a dormancy.

    Here he is with some gypsicola:

    I keep them damp like a standard house plant over winter.

    Mine are outside in an unheated , well ventilated greenhouse and they're pretty hardy.

    Plants pictured December 26th 2017.

    Ambient temperatures were fairly mild in general last winter (1C - 33.8F) but there were a couple of spells where it dropped to -7C (19.4F). Less hardy plants managed the first spell (the beast from the east) but the return did instigate a decline in some.

    Bonjour

    for the filiforme : gypsicola - medusinae - heterophylla completely dry

    for the others slightly wet no more (especially if you have added peat to your mineral substrate)

    always in a very bright room (no direct sun) here to LE MANS with an average temperature of 12 ° c always higher than 5 ° c

    the dormancy in fact for the Mexican species it is the passage of the dry season (contrary to the temperate which for them is the passage of the winter) Season dry from November to May; Rainy seasons from (April-May) June to October.

    Thanks for the info. Currently my only fear is that the gypsicola will want it even drier than the martinezzi

    My P. gypsicola sits in the same tray as the P. martinezii.
