    I think I've seen some pictures of jeff2's pings in mostly perlite. Joseph Clemens also recommended a media consisting mostly of perlite. The latter is contained in a sticky at the top of this sub-forum.

    Hi gill!

    Sorry for the late reply. I didn't see your message. It's still alive (thank gosh!) and getting better. Though its still very small. The initial lighting change and increase humidity seemed to help acclimatize the ping to it's new environment. It's growing slowly but at least I'm not losing any leaves. My leaf pulling-s however didn't do so well. One of it just shrank and withered away but the other one seems to still looks the same as the day I pulled it but no strike yet. I don't know how long I'm suppose to wait to see if it would grow into a new rosette.

    I also bought 2 new pinguiculas that had drying up leaves on the bottom part as a problem as well so they're both currently in a Ziploc treatment right now. Makes me wonder if maybe I have to acclimatize all CP plants that I buy online from now on.

    Kaila the leaf pullings I've taken seem like they usually start to offset at their base somewhere between 2-4 weeks after I start them. It does seem like some almost immediately go clear and wither away on me. If it still looks the same that's good - they eventually start to die off from the outermost part of the leaf down to the base but don't give up even if it starts to die off as long as the base of the leaf is still succulent.

    Does that mean that the pullings is basically based on luck? sometimes you get a strike and sometimes you don't?
