    Starman has asked me to post these pics of his plant. i've never heard of it.
    I looked on the cp database to see if it existed-no matches, i searched for it online-no pages or pics found.

    He tells me it was created by a man named Stan Lampard, he got it from Suzy from CPUK,it's parents are P. gigantea 'alba' x P. moctezumae, and apparently it's a cultivar.

    I'm crap when it comes to pings, but it looks alot like my P. 'Aphrodite'

    auctually, i take that back, i really didn't look at the pics properly, it's leaves are more upright than my P. 'Aphrodite' it looks as if the leaves havn't matured enough to bend over, however.

    by the way, if you read this starman, your soil looks very inappropriate for mexican pings.

    Oh yeah, the ping you see by the Apassionada(the plant with redish leaves)
    is Pinguicula laueana(CP2) x emarginata, another rare hybrid.
    Pinguicula x 'Apassionada' is the bromilad looking plant with bright green leaves. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    How many pings do you get in Mexico growing in perlite and vermiculite? You dont find either of those in mexico.
    Most of the potting materials that ppl use, like perlite, are not found in the wild.



    Anyhow, we are going of the topic! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    What do you think, everybody?

    Mexi-Pings will grow in any number of media so if peat works fr Dino than that is what he should use. PingMan does the same thing. I use a crushed colar based media as does ABG. ANd I know of a couple growers who use regular old potting soil. The point is there is no "right" or "wrong" there is just what works for you.

    Dino,

    You plants are looing pretty good. Watch that 'Apasionada' though as it will get really big. I speak from experience.

    Also, I believe that plant is not a cultivar, to the best of my knowledge Stan (the guy who bred it) never registered it, he just gave it that name.

    Thanks Pyro! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] How big will it get exactly?
    I only got them all this morning, they were bare root as well!
    I got 2 other pings as well, Pinguicula emarginata and Pinguicula jaumavensis.


    The other ping that you see(the reddish plant) is Pinguicula laueana(CP2) x emarginata, another rare hybrid. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]


    P.x 'Apassionada' is the bromilia looking plant with bright green leaves. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
