    I have not been able to find enough information to id this ping. It was purchased on 2/24/2001. It was about 2 inches in diameter. Today it is just over 4 inches in diameter. I has produced two new offshoots since purchase. It does not produce plantlets on the leaves. The photo of the plant below is of one of the offshoots. Of the 2 plants originally purchased, there are now 5. Each is in bloom with several flower stalks with a single white flower.

    I have not had any rotting problems except when I put ants on the leaves. The plant does well on a diet of gnats.





    The flower is white. But the next photo makes it appear somewhat purple. This was due to poor lighting at the time the photo was taken.



    I do have several guesses of my own, but each time I try to ID the plant, something doesn't fit.

    Thanks.

    Its looks to me like an album form of P. primuliflora.
    But you say it doesnt produce plantlets so that wouldnt fit, perhaps yours just has a diminished ability to do so.

    It seems like it could be ionantha.

    Looks like P.ionantha, another warm-temperate ping that is found in its natural habitat growing with P.primuliflora.

    I have been thinking it is ionantha. I first thought it was primuliflora, but the flower color does not support that.

    Nick,

    Is the pic of the rosette acurate as to colour? The slight purple tinging toward the middle, is that really there, lighting or is my monitor off on colour again?
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    My guess is that the colors showing in the photo of the plant is just a trick of the lighting and that the plant is 100% all green.
