    Ping won't produce carnivorous leaves

    My laueana has been producing succulent leaves for about a year now. It suffered extreme damage due to a root mealie infestation, which may be the root of the problem. Anyway, mealies are gone, and it has good roots, but it still won't enter summer growth. I'm giving my plants an early spring under lights, 12 on 12 off at the moment. Has anyone had a ping that got stuck in winter growth? Anyone ever bring a stuck ping out of it?

    Yeah we're in winter here. Makes it a bad time to try to troubleshoot a weird dormancy. I am only questioning because this plant has been dormant for nearly a year.

    I've noticed that I could for P. calderoniae that were starting to go into winter mode back into summer mode by using a foliar fertilizer. It's always worth a shot.
