    potting mix is 1:1:1:1 vermiculite, pearlite, quartz sand, and peat.
    my new mix which I don't like is APS, peat, pearlite, and vermiculite, too much breakdown of the soil.
    I'm going to switch back to the 1111 mix after the holidays.

    I second that remark... I've never seen them anywhere are they a more rare type of ping?

    I don't think jaumavensis is rare, but they are a small ping and according to Jimscott are hard
    to ship. I think I have had them up for trade a few times? I have about 50 of them right now.
    they get a nice pink color under floros. LOL, last winter I tried to split a clump of them and ended up with LOTS of leaf pullings, instead of split plants.

    they look like little flowers, thats what a lot of people tell me. they are surprised when I say those are the leaves and they kill bugs for fertilizer.
    peace,

    Yours is the only that made it to me alive and well. Once established, they are one of the easier ones to propogate from leaf pullings.

    Again, zero, BEAUTIFUL plants!
    I am glad you mentioned your potting mix. Last spring I started messing with APS with mixed results. I will soon repot some pings and check out the breakdown.
    I seem to have had consistent success with 1:1:1:1 sand, peat, APS, and perlite.

    I think I will try your method if it means my pings will lokk like yours!
