    LOL! Yeah it is! One other thing... when you see new growth, you know the plant is reasonably acclimated. Then take a few leaf cuttings and keep them going. Nothing fancy... just place the leaves on top of the media, as is, and in about 3 weeks, you can see a new plant forming at the base.

    Jim, I have the same hybrid and mine aren't doing as well. The tips of the leaves just turn brown for what seems like no reason. Any plant that has gigantea in it has never done well for me.

    Really nice plants.

    I haven't had any luck with ping pulls. My 1713 made some baby plants from what I assume was roots breaking off under it. All the pulls I've tried have failed in some way or another.

    For ping pullings, do you put them in a humidity chamber? Or just place them on the same media as the parent plant?

    I've taken pullings of my P. x'Sethos', P. moranensis x gypsicola and P. weser...and they all struck. I kept them in over 95% humidity and planted on 50/50 peat/perlite...

    I used to put them in baggies. As per Capslock, I now place them directly on the soil surface, uncovered. And in ~3 weeks I can see new plants emerging from the base.

    Weird, mine almost, as a rule, do the same thing -- they turn brown then shrivel up to nothingness. I wonder if I need to wait for succulent leaves?
