    Hi. After reading through the ping section in The Savage Garden, i was wondering, is it possible to propgate Mexican Pings from leaf cuttings of the carnivorous leaves, not their dormant leaves? In the book, it said the winter succulent leaves work well. No reference to carnivorous leaves. also, does anyone have any tips on leaf cutting propagation with:

    P.ehlersai

    Just peel the outer leaves and stick them face up in a damp mix of perlite:vermiculite or peat:sanderlite etc. The base does not need to be covered with soil. Mexican pings can be grown from carnivorous leaves. Most people take cuttings of the winter leaves because they are more numerous and the ping will likely receive less damage during this period. Note: P.emerginata only produces summer leaves.

    Thanks CP2k for the help. Wow, emarganta only makes summer leaves, so its a warm-temperate? Can damp long-fibered shpganum work as a cutting base? thnak-Zach

    P.emarginata is a mexican ping. It grows in the wet valleys of Mexico(forgot exact location) that remain damp during the winter. LFsphagnum can work for a cutting base. Just make sure the leaf base has contact with the LFS.

    The correct spelling is Pinguicula ehlersiae:

    CP Database search for Pinguicula ehlersiae

    I have much trouble keeping the names straight, I recommend the CP Datebase to check yourself, they also give information on make up of registered hybrids. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Being an impatient person by nature I never did wait until the plants formed winter leaves before I tried to propagate them by leaf cuttings. Guess what, to my never ending pleasure they not only grew plantlets from any leaf I chose to use but they produced even more plantlets from larger leaves (the larger the leaf the more plantlets) Hurrah [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    An example of my impatients:

    Plantlets formed on 5 leaves removed from the Pinguicula 'George Sargent' plant I received about two weeks ago. This left the mother plant with only two leaves with which to continue. Seems that this was sufficient.



    This is the mother plant:
