    So, someone just asked me in PM whether it is possible to have a pulling mature enough for a giveaway within a year. Yes, it is. I got the youngest of these pings in August last year:
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=127959 (i was bold enough to bluntly ask for some )

    Here is how my Aphrodite looked in September growing in crappy perlite soil:


    and then later I got more plants from Mass.

    The plants in the giveaway were grown from pullings that I started in November last year.
    The leaf was pulled and placed on milled lfs:sand media and by December they were this:



    The long purpleish leave in the middle-left is P. 'Aphrodite'.

    And 8 days later:


    To propagate the P. primuliflora you don't even have to take a pulling. Keep the soil wet and they will start propagating themselves. The small plants will start growing in the middle of the leaves. And both primuliflora that I'm sending are both flowering/mature size.
    So yes. It is not only possible but quite easy. I assume that upon receipt the winner will let the plant acclimatize and grow for half a year or so and then will start a new colony.
    Reasonable right?

    I'm interested, but I have a question. I am part of the WNY cp club, we meet regularly to discuss cps and learn about them. Its a small club that contains a few TF members, would it be acceptable to share leaf pullings there?

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

    Gill, what is your soil recipe? I need to get my P. moranensis in a better mix.

    @Paul,

    Average size leaf produces on average 4+ strikes. This should be enough to share here and with friends. If you are the winner I'd like you to prioritize TF. What you do with the rest of the plantlets is of-course up to you.

    I think overall point 2 of the rules should answer your question.

    @dsrtfox1942
    The soil in which these plants were grown was listed before each picture on the first page. Currently I am trying to substitute perlite with lava rock. Also relevant discussion here: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...5&postcount=24
