Btw for most pings, the soil to use would be peat and sphagnum, or just sphagnum or peat depending on the species?

why not try temperate style P.vulgaris (allways outside), or subtropical US as P.caerulea.
for the mexican I always advise to start with hybrids of the style x'Sethos ', X' Weser ', X' Tina ' very easy to find in garden centers.They are easy enough plants that are ideal for hand-making ,which does not claim special conditions since they are horticultural hybrids.
the problem with watering in dormant period ('in situ' the dry period) is the rotting, so a slightly moist substrate may be a good solution with always good air humidity, especially when the substrate is not completely mineral, as most horticultural hybrids.
avoid dry atmospheres of overheated rooms.
for my part I always go out all my mexican ping from May to October and I return them from October to May in a bright room with a temperature of 10-12 ° C on average, especially no temperature below 5 ° C,dry or slightly wet substrate for the majority and completely dry for all ping with 'hibernacle' and onion.

By “warm temperate” I’m referring to ones like primuliflora, ionantha etc.
