    Dividing a P.gypsicola

    Hi All,
    When is the best time to divide my gyspicola? From looking at it this morning it went from two plants to three.Is it better to divide it now or when it starts developing its winter leaves?

    This one is tricky....the danger of dividing is some Pings tend to fall apart when pulling them apart. Is the gypsi clearly separating into separate plants? if not, i would leave it alone.

    I've never heard of it dividing. Maybe someone else knows. I would leave it alone and wait for the leaves to become winter form and attempt leaf pullings.

    I guess what I mean is it is now in the crestate form.Not too sure oif that is the correct way of putting it or not. Anyway, thanks for the tips and I wil just leave it and see how it develops.

    Yes, pings do crestate sometimes. I would leave it alone. Any attempt to separate could result in no plant, just separated leaves!!

    How have you been approaching leaf pullings?
