    I'm so envious [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    That's a great looking Ping! I took some leaf cuttings before my sethos rotted away. Now only 3 survive, but at least they are growing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    They're the size of 2 of "D"s.

    I separated my Ping sethos into two and took some leaf cuttings. However, most of the leaf cuttings have died. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    P sethos is the same as P weser? the one from FEF
    Haven't seen them bring in any pings. It seems that the perlite media is ideal but didnt manage to get any new pings to try it out.

    Nice Pings anyway.

    vistary, p.sethos and p.weser are both hybrids of the same parentage. They can be differentiated by their flowers.

    FEF p.weser is actually p.sethos. I found out only when my plant flowered and I proudly showed its photo as p.weser. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Hello, I tried searching for the post with details on the medium used for the Ping but couldn't locate it. Cindy, would you pls tell me your "secret formula" which you've used to grow your Pings to great success? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I still have one little Ping left and thought I would try repotting it. It looks half dead though.

    is that 100% Perlite media with Sphagnum you are using? I guess your container, then, has no drainage right?

    Hi,

    It is pure perlite and live sphagnum. No drainage. I use distilled water but still have to change the perlite every 4-6 months. It breaks down over time and algae grows too.



    That's a pretty old photo. Since then, they have multiplied and I have smaller plants. The hot and humid weather we are getting recently is not doing them any good. I've got two that rotted away, even with such a system. Try to keep them cooler and drier, especially at night.
