    I hadn't forgotten. There was that hiatus you had and I wasn't sure. I have miserable failiure with VFT's, C. follicularis, N. mirabilis, and Mexi-pings. On the other hand, D. binata has about 15-20 baby plants and D. filiformis also has many growth points by using them. I think that they would be great to put pigmy sundew gemmae in, to conserve horizintal space and yet provide for vertical space for root development.

    Alright, it seemed like my ping was doing fine. It was even shooting up a flower bud! In a course of 4 days however, the leaves all started to die from the tip in, and when I gave a leaf a poke, it fell right off of the center rosette. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Even the edges of the flower bud leafs are browning! I thought that maybe there wasn't enough roots to support the leaves, so I pulled two more weak leaves off to hopefully make leaf cuttings and save the ping! Anyone have this problem?

    I think I loved it to death, just like my first VFT back in kindergarten.

    Just checked on it and it's not doing any better. I fear that soon it'll be a really big leaf cutting!

    Ahhhh... I checked on it this morning, and the flower stalk just tipped over and ate dirt. I'm pretty sure it's dead. I took off all of the remaining leaves, and put them in the plastic bag to hopefully make cuttings. I think the harsh climate changes shocked it to death. I guess my collection will go pingless for a bit before I can send off for another one. I like the mexican ones better anyway.

    I left the dead stalk, the bare stub, and the roots in the pot. Is there a chance of any new growth appearing there?

    These plants can surprise you, down the road. Go ahead with attempting the cuttings, but don't toss the plant yet!

    The moral of this story is... P. primuliflora is sensitive to climate changes! When getting a new plant, be sure to gradually ease it into it's new environment!

    Yes, and they really frown upon being dropped on the floor, grease side down.
