Just wanted to show you all how much my plants have grown over the summer.
The picture with the flowers was early last Spring, and the other picture was taken today.
It's about that time it should start getting smaller again with the cooler nights in the basement.
It's turned itself into three maybe four plants now. I hope next Spring it puts on a good show!

Very nice plants. Wish I could do that. What's the secret?

Mine stay between the size of a nickle and a quarter. :-(
I had a pot for well over a year and they did nothing. I tried a different soil mixture, waited well over a year, still nothing.
I then split the plants up into 2 different pots with different soil mixtures from the first 2 times and I get the same result.... small plants.

IF mine refuses to grow IM hjust gonna call it the dwarf one.. Becuase it was a division from a normal one that was also normal sized but then it shrunk and never grew again.. IN THE SAME MIX AS MY OTHER PINGS -.- my ping pullings i took a month ago are bigger than this little thing,..

I don't know what it is with pings, but sometimes you get a plant that just won't do anything for you. I have ehlersiae and esseriana that have just struggled along at about 5mm diameter for 2 or 3 years. I had some cyclosecta that did the same for 2 years then suddenly this summer they shot up to about 4cm in diameter.

And then I have plants that go from pullings to mature flowering plants that start dividing in about a year.

WOW that is a nice looking plant and a very cool flower. I might have to start adding some pings to my CP terrarium.
