    Possibly Fryster, but this is the only ping it is happening to. Also, it does not seem to happen to every leaf. Everything else seems just fine. I have removed it from my lights and placed it on the windowsill where I will monitor it more closely. It's frustrating, because this is one of my favorite pings.

    It looks a lot like my P. gigantea x P. moctezumae hybrid, which happens to be my favorite ping. It looooves the fungus gnats.

    (hybrid is on the right in photo, rather old photo too)

    Wow, very nice pings. That P. gigantea x P. moctezumae is really nice. I may have to try and get one eventually.

    What compost are you using? Also, can you describe your growing conditions?

    Thanks a bunch!

    I've never seen that damage before. Is it possible that it has come into contact with some sprayed chemical? I would isolate it from your others immediately just in case.

    Now that I think about it it is possible. I know pest control has been here a couple of times. The thing is none of the other plants have it. It seems to be hanging in there on my window sill. Thanks for the input Jim.

    Hey Jim,

    I have one of these guys too. I got it and it slowly lost its long dormant leaves. It soon shrank and slowly started to put out carnivorous leaves but very slowly. It is a very slow plant compared to my P. 'Sethos' and P. 'Pirouette'. Ill post pictures for you to see mine. Is your plant under direct bright light? I would just give it tons of light to allow it to make up its mind. Hope it turns out well though this plant is beautiful and very pink. Ill try to take tons of cuttings to ensure you have a back up

    I have seen this kind of damage caused by mites, spider mites or cyclamen mite, possibly other pest mites too. Some mites are very difficult to see, even with magnification.

    Thanks Joseph -

    Unfortunately it continues to decline. I have it isolated from the other plants. Looks like I may need to get another one
