    And from the side, these rosettes kinda look like compressed pine cones.

    Since the last update, these two rosettes have nuzzled closer to one another.



    From the side, these ping's leaves are neatly stacked, layer upon layer.



    These two have really taken off, after being fed fairly regularly, over the last three months.

    Back on October 1, 2011, i took some leaf pullings and then on November 1, i placed the strikes from those pullings in this 4" pot.

    Here are the resultant plants along with an odd looking green mass of baby pinglets, in the centre, from one of the strikes.

    Are you growing these in straight gravel?

    The gravel is just a top dressing and is both cheaper and more uniform in particle size than the all mineral mix just beneath it.
