    Great! Thanks! I heard they do bloom year round. Another bonus for thet plant!

    Carnivorous leaves have worked just fine for me. It is not even necessary to have the entire leaf intact. As you can see in some of my recent leaf pulls, there is callus forming at the wound site. I had presumed that these partials would not make it, imagine my surprise. I give them a weekly mist so that partial leaves and old leaves will not desiccate.

    Pings are quiet resilient. I have defoliated pings to just a few leaves, only to have them come back with a vengeance.

    Very nice! IIRC Joseph had a nice write up with photos on ping leave pullings. Need to find that again.

    'Dormant' leaves are easier to work with, particularly when it comes to long leaves, but anytime works.

    Thanks Jim! I'm going to let this plant acclimate a week or so before taking one leaf off. Photo of the plant soon.
