    Hey, Jim, that flower is awesome! I just got a gracilis x moctezumae in the mail, which I'm hoping will grow well for me. Are you using crushed coral or other sources of calcium carbonate with any of the "calcareous" pings? I've been trying my hand at a bunch of different Mexican species and hybrids, and sorting out what grows well for me, etc.

    I use crushed corall for the P. gypsicola but am not aware that P. gracilis could use an alkaline soil media. Now ya got me wondering!

    Where does one acquire crushed coral?

    Pet stores?

    You can get it in huge bags from fish stores. However, it's just calcium carbonate, which you can get almost anywhere. Eggshells are made from mostly calcium carbonate, etc.


    Jim, keep up the good work. You're my ping hero right now! Here are some descriptions of P. gracilis' home turf:
