Please help my mexican butterwort!
So I have never owned a carnivorous plant before but I have done as much research as I can on taking care of my new plant. Any help would be greatly appreciated though!
I bought a pinguicula jaumavensis last weekend online and it arrived on Wednesday. They didn't even bother bringing it to my house and just left it in the mailbox! Grrr. But it looked pretty healthy, other than that its SUPER TINY, as you can see in the pictures, and it barely has a root system! I have read that pings have short roots but this one only has 2 or 3! At first, I planted it in a cactus mix (my mistake) but then read more about the type of soil to use and it now sits on rocks (only on top), sand (w/ rocks mixed in), and some moss that was shipped with it. It was much greener when I got it but now the ends are drying and turning brown! I hope I didn't water it too much.
By the way, it is monsoon season here in Tucson, AZ and it is very hot. This ping. came from Newcastle, WA.
So now here are my questions.
Is it dying?
What stage is it in? Winter/summer?
How much should I be watering it? (on the tray)
Is my soil mix ok?
Is it ok to keep it outside or should I keep it in a window where it would get direct morning sun?
Why the browning edges?
