    Lately it's been really warm at my house, 85-95 degrees F, with 85% humidity. My ping's leaves began to stand straight up the other day, today I shaded it so it would get only half light. Normally it get morning direct sun, indirect the rest of the day. Does this mean that my ping is doing better or worse? It has the same amount of dew and sits in a tray of water. Any advice? Thanks!

    my pings do that all the time when the temps are high, i see nothing wrong wiht it. The ones that do it the most in my collection is ehlersia and moranesis. What kind of ping is that? It looks nice!

    It's very warm in my house too...about the same temps. My pings dry out real fast...have to check them daily to make sure they dont get too dry.
