    I feed all my pings bloodworms and diluted Maxsea fertilizer every couple of weeks. Of course, most aren't big enough to flower yet, but they're getting there.

    Decided to add a couple more pics, since the plant sent up the next flower: and it's a mutant!
    First, new pic of the normal one:

    And now the mutant:

    Not the same plant, but didn't want to make a new thread for one pic: my P. rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica is growing up nicely

    Couple more shots:
    This pic gives a good idea of just how small the P. lusitanica flowers are

    And my P. gigantea has begun flowering. I have attempted a cross with the P. moranensis x ehlersiae, but if that fall through, the rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica will flower soon

    The P. rotundiflora x hemiepiphytica finally opened its flower! Color as shown here is actually about 3 shades darker in real life, with a notable metallic quality. For a good example of the real color, a different clone of the same cross is pictured in the new 'Savage Garden'.


    I plan on trying to cross this guy with the new P. gigantea flower coming up. I think the cross P. gigantea x (moranensis x ehlersiae) and the reverse has already worked, as the pods are swelling a lot, so could have a new hybrid out soon.

    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?
