    Honestly, they are all pretty easy to take care of. Probably an agnata or agnata hybrid. Hit up Crystal, she might have a better answer for you. I know she keeps far more than I do.

    Welcome to the world of Pings! Most are very easy. There are a handful that are a bit more difficult. I would recommend staying away from P. gypsicola and P. medusina in particular.

    Some that are easy to come by are P. 'Weser', P. 'Sethos', P. moranensis, P. moctezumae, P. gigantea, P. agnata. There are many other species and hybrids that are just as easy to grow.

    Good luck,
    Crystal

    My first Ping was cyclosecta. Incredibly easy to put through winter rest and bring back to summer growth without rotting it.

    what are your Summers like in Virginia? I don't think it gets as warm there as it does here.

    It gets warmer. We get at least one week where temps laugh at us close to 120F. We don't have the Humboldt Current like you do, so heat and humidity builds to an oppressive level where not even tropical parrots want to deal with it. The Pings stay inside under lights for the Summer. They go outside around the end of August to trigger winter growth.

    ok so you get the same heat I do, 115-120 for most of August, just far more humid. That is my biggest hurdle is the dry weather. I grow mine outdoors year round and they do quite well. Just need some shade cloth for part of the summer.
