Default which one to go for?

hello friends,
till now i was interested in drosera, nepenthes and vfts, but now i m realy keen to grow pinguicula, I am from India so I would like to know what kind of ping would be best for me which is easy to grow, fast, n can adopt to the my place climate.

i am attaching the general climate conditions of my place whic is New Delhi, India. If possible please advice which kind of ping plant or seeds i should think about starting from

thanks

New Delhi, the capital of India, has a hot and humid climate for most of the season. The city climate becomes very hot during the month of June which is followed by monsoon happening somewhere after September

Summer Season: The average temperature of New Delhi during summer ranges from 25 C to 46 C

Winter Season: In comparison to summer, winters are short. Winter Season starts from the end of November and continues till February-March. The cold waves from the Himalayan region makes the winters in New Delhi very chilly. Temperatures fall substantially down to as low as 3 to 4 C at the peak of winter.

Monsoon (Rainy Season): The city does not witness much of rainy season. The monsoon lasts from July to September. October sees the end of the monsoon but it is reasonably pleasant.

In a first time you can grow with this substrate some hybrid like x'Sethos' or x'Tina' they are common in swap .

but pinguicula is not a terra plant you know

if you want to try the others , the taxons , use an other substrate more mineral and calcareous .
