Hey, my argyroderma is renewing its leaves right now. I know that that typical culture is to leave them bone dry until the old leaves are completely absorbed. However, right now the new bodies are showing some wrinkling. I have heard that light misting can be good. Any tips here? In the past I...
I have a ton of pinguicula esseriana that are available for trade. I will add pics.
I'm interested in things like
Mexican pings, stapeliads, orchids/orchid divisions esp phalenopsis/Bulbophyllum/Catasetinae,and Hoya/Hoya cuttings.
After several years of growing I'm finally into orchids! Super fun. Here are some photos!

Showed big improvement when I put in it in bark in a south facing window. It definitely grew in low light, but seems to strongly prefer good...
It did pretty well through my move. It was attacked by mold, but it went away with a sulphur solution. I moved it to bark and to a much brighter location. It has responded by growing vigorously. The other lead even woke up.
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...
Hey TF. I've been away for a while. I have a few near flowering size plants of P. rotundiflora. I am looking for other Mexican pinguicula. I'm into pullings or small plants.
Specifically, I am looking for the following:
Pinguicula moranensis (any form)
As many T5 bulbs as you can fit in your space. I grow some mesembs and stapeliads 4-6 inches under 4 2' T5, and my highest light plants aren't at their best coloration. My Argyroderma and all stapeliads have flowered in these conditions, however. 12- 16 hours is good depending on what you are...
The rest are to be taken with several grains of salt
2,3 look like moranensis x ehlersiae hybrids. Maybe something with esseriana?
4,5 look like more moranensis/ ehlersiae hybrids.
6 is esseriana or ehlersiae.
Idk about the rest.
It's weird they don't flower. Do you fertilize? How's...
Congratulations on your success. Lithops were some of the first plants I was interested in. Your plant looks like Lithops aucampiae. If you got it from a big box store, it is very likely to be this species. I have a hard time getting this one to absorb its leaves.
Edit: Any scent?
