A few months ago I bought 2 Mexican pinguiculas, then about a week or so later, they started turning brown and almost like translucent. I assumed it was my own fault as I think I overwatered them. Finally they died.
I waited and decided to try again.
A week ago, I received 3 new pings. Upon arrival, I inspected the roots, everything looked fine however the one that is now struggling came with some soil attached to the roots. I decided it was probably better to not mess with it trying to remove the soil to inspect better and proceeded to place it in their container.
I potted them in the soil provided by the seller with some long fiber spaghnum moss in the bottom for water retention during summer ( we have very dry summer here in California). I have kept them in my kitchen windowsill where they get indirect light all day, and humidity every time we use the hot water. The window is a little drafty but we haven’t had cold wind. The soil was moistened on the day I planted them a week ago, and bottom watered again just a few days ago. Both times I used only distilled water. However I was very sad noticing today that my favorite, a cyclosecta, is looking brown and mushy like the ones that previously died. The other 2 ones from this batch seem to be doing fine.
I will attach a picture of the ping soon after receiving it, and a picture of how it looks now. I don’t know what I am doing wrong Any advice will be appreciated!
