    I've never had a P. primuliflora leaf sprout a new plant, but that would be way cool if you get it to work. The Mexican pings sprout from leaves very well, exxcept for P. gypsicola.

    My little Lowe's P. primuliflora keeps trying to die on me as well. Hmm, and I thought it was just me...

    The leaves seem to brown from tips-to-stem and then turn slimy and rot away.

    I've tried LFS/Perlite and peat/Perlite.

    I've tried lightly watering it and also a heavy watering routine.

    I've put it under my T5's and I've tried it under the T12's. No difference.

    I've even tried it under a little humidity dome.....

    It wants to flower all the time but refuses to keep its leaves intact.

    Might some of our pings be "bad genetics" plants, while other's are of a healthier stock??

    That could be it, I'd assume that all of Lowes' CPs are from TC? Maybe P. primuliflora is "allergic" to TC? But then you'd think they'd die in the store, but they don't? Maybe it IS humidity? They're in those mini terrarium things at Lowes...hmm..

    Well, here is what mine looks like now.....



    I remember loosening the cube top on my prim when I got it home and the next day the leaves had dried and shriveled up. I guess they need high humidity 'eh?

    They probably needed more time to adjust to lower humidity. Gotta keep in mind they are suffering from lack of proper conditions & care as well as shipping stress from the greenhouse to the store and the store to your house. That's a lot of changes for something that is ment in nature to stay in one place its whole life.

    Jim look a here, I got it to work. This came from the only piece of leaf that was left after the plant had died. Took what seems like forever but at least the little plant is trying to make a come back. I re potted it this morning and now I'll see what happens.
