    I'd encourage anyone to grow pings.

    Stacker...Prims don't reproduce the same way Mexi pings do. They make plantlets off the tips of the leaves and you don't need to pull them off for them to do that.
    .....and then I look at what Joseph, Peter, Andrew and(?) are posting on the forums, that have been under great artificial lighting, and think, man, that red & green leaf look is pretty amazing!

    Why don't people find Pings attractive?

    I think their sticky leaves ROCK and the way they catch bugs. The leaves themselves are interesting. My P. primuliflora had a very nice flower before rot succumbed these two bulbs it had and then the plant died mostly. Before it died, though, it produced a shoot, and this shoot I repotted and is still green, so my P. primuliflora lives on! If it dies though, my primuliflora will go.

    My P. John Rizzi has yet to flower but is producing a rapid escapade of dewy leaves, which have caught many fruit flies. I saw a twitching fruit fly on it earlier, and I took a toothpick, grabbed a little dew from next to it, and wrapped it around it, and did this many times, like latching it to it. It was like a little prison! Kind of fun to do, poor bug! I really can't wait for it to flower though, but once it has enough sticky leaves it'll slow the leaf making process down, and these fruit flies should provide some valuable nutrients to encourage flowering.

    As for the pictures.

    WOAH! Nice! Many pings! That's awesome!
