    Ping hybrids under heat stress

    Poor pings living at the equator. The ambient temperatures goes up to high 80s in the day and low 80s at night where I grow them. Their leaves are getting smaller and smaller.

    I have since moved them to a cooler and shadier area. (Here's an old thread in which Tamlin explained about the Pings reverting back to its winter form under heat stress.)

    I think those are bloodworms. Cindy, are you the one that makes heart shapes on your pings with bloodworms?

    Yeah... where are the thawed, heart-shaped bloodowrms?

    I think I have seen mexican pings being referred to as tropical butterworts, but when I think of Mexico, I think of hot and dry, desert-like. But that's probably a sterotype. I think they actually come from the mountains and that would be dry and 30 or 40 degree temperature swings in a day. This contrasts greatly with the Equatorial and tropical climate of Singapore, assuming they were outside or inside where there isn't AC.

    I seem to remember taking a few pings outside, in the hot and humid Pennsylvania summer and the plants also got smaller. They practically melted.
