    Lowes Ping ID

    Helllo All,

    Could you please help me ID this ping? Very new to pings as in, saw this awesome plant at Lowes and decided to make it a rescue.

    From reading other posts, Lowes often sells Ping Primuliflora?

    I have no idea if this is termperate or tropical? Any comments are appreciated!

    Thank you!

    I would agree, if it were P. primuliflora, it would have wide, ground-hugging leaves, and nowhere near as suculent-looking.
    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.

    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!

    Try and get it to flower! i think it is a moctezume, but seeing what its flower looks like usually helps with an ID.



    You say it came from Lowes? It was a death-cuber, right?
