    my first P.gypsicola blooming

    ive got a pretty good collection of pings now , well one of each in my collection which comes to maybe 12 or 14 . LOL
    gypsicola has a bloom starting , ill have to read a little here , but while i have you here, can it be self pollinated ?
    when i got this it was a very tight little rosette about the size of a dime , Were does the rosette come from , seeds or will this ping reproduce by division like the others do?
    .

    Great job! basically, forget about hand-pollinating. Your best bet is to take leaf pullings and place them on dry media. Joseph Clemens suggest making a paper towel sandwich with the leaves, under artificial lighting, until they sprout.

    What's your secret!!!! I have tiny esseriana which have been popping up and even bloomed for me!

    But as much I love pings .....the thing with the water is where I get hung up. Do you let them sit in water? How much?
    AND I've been using black plastic bowls as watering trays for most of my cps. They're small and round and don't take up that much room. Is that a no no? Please, give me some info!! Just the basics, please?

    thanks

    Marian: When the pings are in the "growing season" (spring, summer), you let them sit in a little water. When they display "non-carnivorous leaves" you keep them essentially dry.
