    Pings of a Different Color

    I am thinking about maybe getting into pings. I find the colorful, non green ones most appealing, but I am unsure what ones would be the best starter plants. Any ideas?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Moranensis is really easy, flowers prolifically and goes a maroon colouration when in enough sun, I use African violet mix and spag, 10cm tall pot and a 2-3cm year round water tray, in shade they grow bigger, faster and flower more for me, but in higher light levels they are maroon and small.

    No dormancy?

    P. moranensis is one of the species that does not have an obligate dormancy period. It can go dormant, but it doesn't need to oftentimes.
    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.

    Offhand, P. agnata and P. laueana are two that readily turn red / purple.

    Otherwise Planifolia, I have never tried growing them but I have been told they are easy enough
