    Not blooming yet! I spied what looks like 2, green, vertical scapes, with a teardrop shaped thingy on top. It looks different than anything else going on aboveground. So I'm hopeful. One is about a half inch tall, and the other just barely visible.

    I've got the same thing with my 'blue'

    Of course the 'whatever it is' has been sitting there for about two months not doing anything. o_O

    It's a moss sporophyte. Rip it out before it's too late.

    So...taking this from a post by Vic Brown at CPUK (thanks Jim!) regarding the P. kondoi/reticulata issue...its permissable to label your plant either way?

According to Jan, this material is of P. reticulata, not of P. kondoi and P. kondoi is only known from one badly described location and has not been found since its original collection.

    P. kondoi and P. reticulata are obviously very closely related species and may well prove to be synonymous in the future, but whatever you choose to call the plants we cultivate (according to Jan, both names can be legitimately used, depending on your point of view), it is still a stunning little Mexican Ping!

    Figured i'd jump in since I love a good discussion on mexi-ping substrates.

    I'm another that has used coral in my mixes, and am one who uses the addition of cat litter to help out with the mix as well. Though it varied quite a bit, i honestly tried to get as far away from an organic media as possible. At one point I learned that fungus gnat larvae really do enjoy snacking on mexi-pings quite a bit. No organics=no larvae.

    At any rate, i digress, here's the mix I was using [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] :
    1:1:1:1
    perlite:vermiculite:crushed coral:hartz ph5 cat litter

    Everything was mixed together with an additional layer of vermiculite on top just to give the roots something to stick to.

    I had used the same for cuttings as well, only topping it off with a thin layer of milled sphagnum to keep the surface wet.
