    Hahaha, well I'd love to try turning it off and turning it back on again but it doesn't seem like it wants to turn off > by now it should have gone into dormancy :/

    On a serious note I've never encountered those sorts of symptoms before. It looks like the plant has taken a serious hit too. Brace yourself for potentially losing the plant, but I very much hope that you do not!

    With the frass in mind, I'd have to agree with Kevin ... caterpillar most likely. You can check under the leaves to make sure it isn't still there but it may have moved on to another plant. Haven't had any such attacks on my pings but I did have a caterpillar do some serious damage to some of my Drosera capensis. It was going from pot to pot, taste testing I guess. Found the little bugger and fed it to one of my widows.

    If this is grown indoors, maybe repot, clean off all parts of the plant, repot in new media and isolate from other plants for a few days. Just a suggestion.
    Good Luck!

    Definitely looks like a caterpillar, similar thing happened to all of my South east U.S. Pings with a cutworm, my least favorite pest tied with mealy's! All the pings eventually recovered after I found the cutworm, but they were eaten down to roots, so don't give up hope yet!

    P.S.- a way to see if the caterpillar is still hiding in the pot is to submerse it for a few minute in water, and if it is in there they usually pop to the surface, just be careful since that's a mexi ping and I'm not entirely sure how well they take flooding.

    It's not a Mexican ping, it's a P. grandiflora that is outside but refusing to go to sleep :/
