I recently got my first ping, a P. primuliflora from the Carnivorous Plant Starter Set on this site, and it seemed to be doing alright. I watered with distilled, and it occupied a good spot on an east-facing windowsill. After a few weeks however, the leaves started wilting heavily. Today I gave a leaf a poke, and it came right off of the stalk! About two thirds of the leaves are this loose, and the flower bud it was shooting up has started to give up also.
Pretty much all of the leaves are half-dead from the tip in. I pulled off three more leaves in addition to the one already off, and made emergency leaf cuttings, which are on top of sphagnum peat in an airtight plastic bag. I think the whole plant's going to turn into one big leaf cutting soon...
If the cuttings don't work, and I lose the plant, I was wondering if anyone has any spare Ping seed they'd be willing to mail me. I really don't care what type, but I'd prefer something easy, given my experience with my current plant.
I'm afraid the only thing that I can give in return is the extremely rare, coveted, long-sought Drosera capensis typical form. All the other plants I bought in the starter set are still too young to make seed or cuttings, but they're all pretty common anyway. I'd also like some directions or tips on how to get Pinguicula seed started.
