    clockwise from top left: moranensis "D", gypsicola, yucca do 1713 and 'Titan'. this is the first year the moranensis and titan have actually grown well. the other two are newer for me.

    Very nice Alex. I really like the P. gypsicola. What mix are you growing them in?

    I think I might give that a try. Some of my pings would start to decline for seemingly no reason after doing really well. I finally figured out what was going on with them. I just repotted the ones that were in a 1:1 peat and sand mix. The roots were rotting off. Apparently the plant wouldn't show signs of decline until it was too far gone. I'm trying out a mix of aquatic plant soil, vermiculite, perlite, a bit of sand, and a small handful of peat. I'll give yours a try too.

    Thanks!

    If I remember correctly, Joseph Clemens suggested a layer of LFS underneath a layer of Perlite. The idea in mind is that the Perlite would allow for drainage and the LFS would provide a little moisture for the roots. I'm experimenting with the underlayer of LFS and a mixture of crushed coral, Perlite, and eggshells for the top half. It's been a week and nobody seems to have reacted to the change.
