Pullings / Roots
I'm doing some pullings now all of which are robustly producing leaves. Some with multiple growth points it would appear. However, none of them have produced any roots at all yet. They're about a month or so old. Some a week or two older. They're in a ziploc bag under lights. They are misted every 5-7 days and lightly fertilized with a 150 ppm urea-free orchid fertilizer solution. With the healthy leaves growing, I have started to slowly open the bag more and more in an attempt to harden them off for potting.
This is my first time doing Pinguicula pullings. Will they grow roots in time, or do I need to do something (i.e decrease humidity/moisture) to induce rooting?
Totally normal. The roots of Mexican Pinguicula are little more than anchors. They will root in time.
in dormancy period, the roots are not important for the pings, because normally it is the dry periode... the usually do new roots when the begin to grow once again..
More over I think they will making roots when you put them on a soil
but roots are always small...dont worry
just one question , it is a mexican, a mexican hybrid , a temperate, a US subtropical , others ?
The pullings are from Pinguicula moctezumae and Pinguicula 'Aphrodite'
