    Some pics of sprouted leaves

    This is what they look like, about a month after having been sprouted in a baggie, etiolation and all:

    Cool. Pings have only recently begun to catch my eye, but they do have their own humble charm.

    When I first saw a ping at a Home Depot (P. primuliflora), I almost didn't buy it. It was uninteresting. But when it flowered, then it held some appeal. The Mexican butterwort flowers are even more attractive. They're also very easy cultivate and propogate through leaf cuttings.

    You got yourself a little piece of ping heaven. Wow. I love that they can propogate in a small amount of space.

    I just pulled a few leaf pullings out of my baggie the other day. It was surprisingly simple to get these to sprout like that, so I appreciate the tips in previous threads. I can't wait to see them grow and then... propagate like mad! Probably the easiest plant ever to propagate.

    Currently I only own primuliflora, but I did pop off a few of the more mature leaves when I repotted it. I cant wait to see if anything happens too.

    Nice pics again, jimscott!

    Nice Jim.

    Growergray...don't underestimate a ping. Some people pass over pings thinking they are dull. But really, once you get a few you really come to appreciate their "greasiness" and beauty. The flowers are pretty but so are the plants themselves.

    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.
