Hi everyone, I'm an artist from Tucson. I just obtained two Mexican Pings and decided to join this forum in order to learn how to grow them better.
I've got lots of experience growing epiphytic orchids, some of the more interesting of which are Angraecum didieri, Jumellea comorensis, and a Grammangis elisi/spectabilis hybrid. I am also trying to grow/breed a number of Eulophia orchids. I seem to have a knack for Cattyleas and Cat-like Dendrobiums, they root and grow like crazy in my studio.
And of course, being a desert dweller I grow a number of cacti and stapeliads. Don't need help growing those.
I got excited about mexican Pings when I saw a large number of them at the SF orchid expo. I particularly like heterophyllous varieties. I currently have a P. cyclosecta and P. kohres. If things go well, I could also try a P. moranensis, or some of the varieties that form those flat saucer shaped rosettes.
