    Ohhh, pretty!


    yep, that certantly looks like it. but if PolishJeffs plant ends up having a flower that looks completely different, id say is a HYBRID.

    Thank you all for the replies. I wouldn't say a death 'cube' but a small dome as a lid with no ventilation. I'll see what I can do about flowing. The leaves look a lot like what JimScott posted.

    I'm sure I'll lose a few of the older leaves as they're already browning on the ends. I'll follow up to this thread if it decides to thank me with a flower.

    Looks like P. moctezumae to me. If that's what it ends up being I'd say repot it out of that cheap Lowes LFS when you get a sec. In my experience, P. moctezumae is quick to croak if it stays too wet, and with the water retentiveness of LFS, that happens easily. Do some searches on the forum for recommended Mexican Ping media and have at it!
    I've done a quick search for tropical pings, looks like a mix of sand/peat/perlite should do the trick?

    Thanks again to all for the insight!

    It's a shame that Lowes around me went to a different supplier for CP's. We used to get interesting plants, but not anymore. Seems that the west coast stores still get cool plants.

    You've had much better luck with plants from big chain stores than I have. Every time I visit Lowes or Home Depot, their CP stock is usually blackened and near death.

    I know I'm a little late to the party, but figured I'd give my $0.02. I've bought plenty of these from Lowes, and they have indeed been P. moctezumae.

    Here's what some of mine looked like:

    That's moctezumae for sure. Still have to get this guy back in my collection.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
