    Here is a picture of a Ping. I picked up yesterday at a local Nursery. The rosette is about 6 inches across, and the flower is about 1 inch across. The prices at this place are kind of all over the place. A couple of weeks ago they had 3 year old flytraps and flowering age Droseras for $2.50, this shipment has 3 to 4 year old flytraps, Mature Capensis, this ping and 3 to 5 year old S. Purps for 7 bucks apiece.

    Wish my nurseries had that. I do not know why but I want to say it is a P. 'titan' even though I am almost possitive I am wrong.

    Good call Treaqum, I did a search on P. 'Titan' and came up with the following. Click on the link below. I know this is it, because the little card on the package this came in says "Starfish Plant"



    P. 'Titan'
