    The one in the 2 inch pot is planted in 50/50 mixture of pumice and coral, very small pieces.

    This is the reply I gave on CPUK, where I've also posted thes photos (trying to share with the max. number of growers). I don't want to give people the impression that I'm ignoring your request for my growing conditions. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I think flowering with 1713 and many other Pings is seasonal and it is important to have seasonal variation in daylength and temperatures to ensure flowering. Both Pyro's and CP2k's plants are also pushing up flower buds from winter rosettes at the moment. I grow YuccaDo 1713 and 1717, along with many other smaller mexicans on a cool (min. temp. 10C / 50F) W-facing windowsill in my study and they thrive, flowering from winter rosettes at the moment; P. ehlersiae (4 forms), P. jaumavensis, P. rotundiflora and P. esseriana (this one flowers all year for me though). In my conservatory, which receives more sunlight and cooler temperatures are even more species flowering from winter growth, as they do in nature.
    So they are not getting much light at the moment, 2-3 hours weak afternoon sun if they are lucky, much more in summer.

    Cheers

    Thumbs up

    Joe,

    I recommend checking with any persons associated with a local cacti/succulent growers association in your area. That is where I found my source. Even here in Tucson, Arizona.

    One of the things I like most about it is that once it is thoroughly wet, it sinks (does not float) in water. For me, perlite always seems to be waiting for me to water wrong and up, up, and away it would go.

    I can find pumice at OSH here in CA, but it is much more expensive than the perlite, which I get in a large 3cuft bag for around $11.

    Something else about this plant I would like to note that may assist in an ID. The leaves on the winter rosettes behave almost like gemmae (at least on my plants.) The slightest bump or even a drop of water will dislodge leaves which then tumble to the media. So far every leaf that has dropped has "sprouted" Not sure if any of the other minis do this but it is the first example I have seen of it.

    Most of my 'minis' do this, especially P. esseriana. I have two small bowls, crammed with this species on my dining room windowsill and leaves are frequently knocked off, they happily form plantlets on the windowsill, with no substrate or extra humidity etc. Others which are very readily lose leaves from their fragile winter rosettes and readily form plantlets include P. jaumavensis, so I don't think this characteristic will help much with the ID.
