    My first pings

    Hi,

    I have had these little fellows for 5 months now. P. Emarginata X Ehlersiae




    Almost caught a moth. The brown stuff on leaves are moth scales

    Nice! Love the pink color of the leaves. P.emarginata seems to be dominating the leaf shape.

    Thanks!

    @porq
    I have got them growing under 2ft T8 lights 6500k and 3500K. My setup has got 6 T8 tubes next to each other, but my pings are directly under 2 of the 6 lights and are about 3 inches from the bulbs.
    I will be removing them from the lights and find a spot somewhere else when dormancy starts.

    It is interesting that I have been unable to find any other mention of the hybrid P. emarginata x ehlersiae anywhere. I wonder where this plant originated?

    @Bobz, I got the plant from a grower in the western cape south africa. Not exactly sure where he got it from

    @porq, i had mine growing outside but they were not doing so well for me, not really sure why as i brought them indoors and placed them under the lights and they took off really well. Would love to start growing some outside as a test.
