    quick ping info

    up until recently I thought pings were like heli's and there was only 1 kind/climate. To my surprise I discovered there are temperate pings. Are there any that would be able to grow outdoors in central va(zone7 i think)? I have done a couple internet searches but I am looking in the wrong places and without knowing what species to look for makes it more difficult for me. Also I would be willing to hear about ones that could tolerate 3 out of 4 seasons too; for example I have african sundews that can tolerate everything but winter here.

    If I could get some species recommendations to get started I will begin looking into their specific cultivation needs.

    Hi, I live in zone 8A in North Carolina. Here is a ping I photographed in the wild yesterday. I think it is a Pinguicula lutea. I think you could probably get one to live in your zone if you covered it with pine straw and brought it into a garage or something in the winter.

    Some of the southern US pings might live there, and you could possibly get species like P. macroceras, P. grandiflora, etc. to live outside.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
