    Looking good Jim!!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Great.I like P. moctezumae soooooooooo much.
    BTW, I live in Hanoi. Climate can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanoi#Climate
    So, can I grow P. moctezumae? And how about growing them from seeds?

    Um.... I would grow them indoors. Mine grows nicely at a south-facing window sill (Northern Hemisphere), with temps ranging from ~15-25 C. Can you obtain seeds?. If not, they start well enough as leaf cuttings.

    "Climate

    Most pings appreciate some sunlight, though full sun may burn the leaves. Depending on where the ping originates from, it may need a cool dormancy, no dormancy, or a dry one.

    In general, temperate pings need a cool dormancy. During the fall they form a structure of tightly closed leaves, called a hibernaculum which sustains the plant through cold temperature.

    Mexican pings respond to the dry winter weather by producing succulent growth and losing all of their carnivorous leaves. During this time the soil should be kept bone dry to barely damp for most species. Spring growth begins after flowering."

    I just worry about temperature. It reaches 37-38C (day) and 30C (night) here in summer. It's good for nepenthes (so nepenthes is common here). But I love small things like ping and bladderworts. I think I will buy some seeds from czplant. P. moctezumae and U. sandersonii and etc... So I want to be sure I'm not going to waste money just to kill them in summer.

    I have been worrying about spring since January starter... Can get up to 40C with a LOT of humidity which makes things worse... It hurts to breathe...
