    Unhappy

    I am thinking of getting another ping since my last one died(little black bugs destroyed it). I was just wondering if anyone had suggestions for some easy to grow pings. i could either keep it in the terrarium that my vfts and sundews are in, or i can put it in its own small terrarium if that would be best. Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

    You know, just about any ping is a beginner ping in my opinion, I find them all very undemanding. I think the two examples given are good ones too. Another favorite is P. cyclosecta.

    What about P. Vularis as a beginner plant? There's one at a local garden shop (which I want to patronize more ofte due to the fact that they actually treat their CPs pretty well), and I'm debating a purchase (I want to, but I may be running out of room in my 10gal tank). So, any opinions?

    Hey,
    P. Vulgaris can be a good begginer plant if given the correct conditions. They are a temperate ping, growing in northern America and Europe. They need really cold temps during their dormancy, and they can't be kept to warm....where do you live. I grow mine outside all year long here in Washington state.
