    I usually record where I buy a plant - but in this case I didn't. I checked Google images when moranensis was suggested and I found a match from vendors California Carnivores and Carnivorous Plant Nursery, both places I shop. So, this ID sounds promising.

    I am a bit concerned about the fact a couple of the Mexican Pings are out of dormancy already. Yesterday I repotted and found why. Almost all are potted in Turface. 2 that are out of dormancy had moss roots absorbing moisture. Another 2 were planted in LFS. I always keep the pots in 1 cm of water or a lower level.

    I think I should amend the mix with something to make it alkaline.

    Since I'm using Turface, I don't really have a problem with algae, moss or fungus gnats.

    On growing conditions, these are in a southern exposure bay window. They receive a lot of light right now. 60F at night and 75F during the day. ~45% humidity.
    In the summer, I am not sure these will get enough light when an oak tree leafs out. I might move and slowly acclimate to the greenhouse for the summer.

    I have always done poorly with Pings. These have finally survived their first year with me. I have read enough now that I will at least I might isolate where I have failed. Interesting to read that they do not like high humidity in the winter. Perhaps that was an issue in the past. I've previously kept them in the GH, and because it's sealed from the cold - it's ~80-90% humidity during the winter.

    Thanks again for the help!

    Best regards, Lisa

    Bonjour

    I still have some doubt about the identification, but I may be wrong

    for me I seems it is a good place for your ping in summer
