    Mexican Pings feeding

    I ignored my Mexican pings until the end of last year when they were shrinking considerably. Then I placed bloodworms on them.

    Top: How they looked when fed on the last day of 2012.
    Bottom: Today after the second feeding the day before

    I love the pure perlite you are using! An earlier thread you posted in inspired me to do the same thing with pings and drosera. It seems to be working well.

    a few modest starts

    These are Mexican Ping hybrids. Not too what they are exactly though. I can't grow any other Mexican Pings in my weather as they will just melt away in the heat. Somehow the perlite has been keeping these relatively cool. They used to be larger...maybe 2-3 plants per container but over the past year, the leaves put out got smaller and smaller. Very glad I have gotten back to feeding them!

    Well they sure look great! Good growing and way to think outside the pot to get results. Thanks for sharing
