    Ping flowers



    When I reduce the photoperiod for my pings in the autumn I always get a flurry of flowers. Perhaps the plants are trying to sow seed before the long, dry winter? I have P. laueana, 'Weser', 'Aphrodite', agnata, moranensis 'A', moranensis 'Caudata', 'Pirouette, Sumidero 1 and 'Sethos' in flower now.





    A large moranensis I call 'Caudata' I have 2 or 3 varieties of moranensis with very similar flowers but different leaf shapes, colours and sizes.



    P. agnata. A white flower with purple edges. Can anyone tell me a possible location for this type?



    P. 'Weser' dividing and flowering.

    They'll flower throughout the whole winter even while in the succulent leaf form so I doubt it's any need to seed before dry conditions.

    Here's a few photos of the P. laueana flower. It's a little past its best and is fading on the bottom. I honestly did not realize that flowers from laueana were difficult This plant has flowered every few months ever since I got it from Hawaiian Botanicals in BC. They sell nice, healthy plants.

    I've had this one plant for 2 years, now. It changes leaves by the season, but no flowers:
