    O.o; No Mc! Just M.

    Very nice. I wanna try Gigantea x Yucca Do 1713, see if I can get something that's basically a giant 1713. That'd be neat.

    I knew you were looking for P. gigantea, but this is a hybrid. It seems to have taken the gigantea traits rather nicely. It is the biggest ping I have. I think the cross with 1713 will be interesting because the 1713 is so small.

    Oh, I got a Gigantea from a guy on GW. It seems to be doing ok in 1:2 Peat/Perlite, for now anyway.

    At least I hope it is. Typically my Pings that don't make it just grow smaller, and smaller, and smaller until there's nothing left.

    Somehow I need to get both of them to flower which so far has been... difficult.

    They should have just a little more of growth season left, before going succulent. In the spring they should / might flower.

    Oddly enough, my moranensis just came OUT of succulent. After it hadn't done anything for a few months I repotted it, discovering quite a large wad of near-fossilized dead mass under the succulent leaves. Peeled that stuff off leaving only green stuff and roots (a second batch of roots was trying to grow around the dead mass) and it woke back up.

    Poor thing's confused, lol.
