Is my Gypsicola ok?

Recommended Posts

I am pretty new with gypsicola, it is treated just like other mexican pinguicula that are going good.

photos are before and after, what's going on?

In the first photo it´s going dormant.

Light and water should be ok, maybe because of high temperatures?

No, just a normal thing, i think gypsicola is one of the firsts Mexican Pinguicula to go dormant.

Is there anyway to give these guys a longer growing period, warmer, more light etc?

mine is still growing and flowering well, grows in a mostly mineral mix which at this time of year is kept quite moist.  @domi  your mix looks quite chunky/rocky do the roots actually have access to water underneath? It might be worth carefully digging it up to examine what's underneath.

Yes I think that roots have access to water because the rocks are always wet and other pinguiculas in the same pot are doing very well. Btw I will change the mix next spring just to be sure
