    I know pings from cutting swill root if you stick them on top of the soil. But since I have a fully mature plant I just got today would it work ot put it in a terrarium that has barely damp milled sphagnum? Or should I take it out and stick it in some soil so it will root? Anyone?

    Mexican pings don't have much of a root system and I have found them to be user friendly in just moving them around and ploppingthem on top of media, with little attempt to to fill in around them. In contrast, a mature P. primuliflora, which has a more developed root system, will go into shock if uprooted. In general, if it has a developed root system, treat with more care. Cover with media and keep wet at first.

    You can do pretty much anything you want with it. Just place it on moist media. They're real easy.

    I have rooted Mexican pings with both leaves. I will pluck off a leaf from time to time and tuck the tip under some LFS. After a few weeks new plants are emerging.
