    Jeff, I would have preferred for them to all go dormant this winter but my setup is new this year and this is also my first winter with Mexican Pings. Under my T5s won't get cool enough for them to go fully dormant (some seem to be partially dormant) but I have discovered that other areas of my grow space will allow them to go dormant because it is about 5F cooler. So next year I will probably move my main pings into the cooler part of my grow space and leave the T5s for pullings.

    I've had terrible luck with subtropical type pings. Only primuliflora has done ok and even that I've had some problems with. I gave Benurmanii half my temperate ping seeds so hoping he will have luck.

    I know some species cycle the flowers daily (debbertiana I think is one of the ones that comes to mind; it also hangs the flowers vertically at night), but reticulata was not one of the ones I was aware of.
    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.

    Oo that's interesting to find out...I have some debbertiana but they haven't flowered yet. Biggest one is somewhere between quarter and half dollar size at the moment.

    Very nice plants. I like the hairs on the reticulata.

    that ibarrae looks better than mine, and I gave that pulling to you!

    might have to reevaluate my setup here soon, my pings are looking kinda shabby. but with turface they might be saved
    Here's my growlist, probably not updated and certainly isn't complete:
