    Plants with serious sun damage

    Several plants in my collection were burnt badly. A few mesembs and pinguicula. I expect the pinguicula to die, but I would still like to try to revive them. The pinguicula are 'aphrodite', esseriana, and cyclosecta. the mesembs are ihlenfeldtia vanzylli, pleiospilos nelii, and lithops...

    Selfing Pinguicula

    I'm sure there are people on here who have experience self-pollinating Pinguicula. I have a P. cyclosecta that is putting up a flower, and I am wondering how different the F1 plants in a self-cross look from the parents, typically. Thanks for the info, the threads on Pinguicula pollination have...

    New Pings!

    For my birthday, someone was kind enough to send two pings: Pinguicula moranensis and Pinguicula esseriana Now I have a collection of four, inculding P. cyclosecta and P. koehres. I planted them in the same all mineral substrate as my first two pings (70% turface 30% sand 0.05% Fe203) and...

    Newbie from Tucson

    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...

    Ping Troubleshooting

    Hi Everyone, I need advice from the experts. I just started growing Pinguicula. About a month ago, I ordered a P. cyclosecta and a P. kohres from cascade carnivores, pictured below: Left, P. cyclosecta Right, P. kohres. They came bare root. I planted them immediately in a 1:1:1 mixture of fine...

    Mexican Pinguicula outside

    This is probably a fairly stupid question but I wanted to know if it were possible to grow Mexican pings, P. cyclosecta in particular, outside over the summer (protected from direct sunlight), then overwinter it under lights. I'm asking this because my growlight setup is very very poor and I...

    Pinguicula cyclosecta

    Here is a pic of one of my Pinguicula cyclosecta in a 3.5 inch pot. The plant is transitioning to winter leaf form. The media is pumice with a little silica sand mixed in. The dark surface on the media is a film that forms, over time - it is likely a mixture of bacteria/algae and other...

    I have a few pullings of P. cyclosecta that have started to grow new shoots. I am interested in some leaf pullings of P. jaumavensis or P. esseriana if anybody is interested. Just shoot me a PM Eric

    Pinguicula pullings

    I am thinking of taking some pullings from two of my Pinguicula, moranensis and cyclosecta. If I were to take pullings from a plant that is about to enter its succulent stage, would that mean that the shoots from the pullings would need the succulent stage/drier conditions on the same timeframe...

    Help with P. cyclosecta

    So I have had a P. cyclosecta for about a year now. Below is a picture of what it looks like now, and as you can see it is lacking the more rounded leaves and has very little blue color to it. I grow it in a mix of peat, sand, and perlite with the top half inch being just sand. I use the tray...

    P. emarginata x cyclosecta?

    I got this ping from the seller as P. emarginata x cyclosecta 2 years ago. It bloom nice this year. However, I think the petal shape doesn't tell it is a cross of emarginata and cyclosecta. What do you think? Any comment is appreciated.
