Just recently upsized my grow area so decided to take a bunch of pullings. I should mention in reality it is much brighter than the photos show.

Left to right: moranensis 'Caudata', moranensis 'A', "John Rizzi", potosiensis, moranensis 'alba', Sumidero 2, gigantea, jaumavensis and gracilis.

I love this!

Keep the pictures coming with their progress please. I love pings but I can never get them to live too long. I suppose I should get a grow light if I get another ping.

it looks so neat and organized. kudos! Do you actually need the plastic bags, though? I've seen Joseph Clemens plop em on some paper towel right out in the open and just wait.

Thanks! Ill post photos in a few weeks when there is noticeable growth! Chances are you were keeping them too wet.


Niiiiice... we should do a trade someday...

I agree Jim! When spring comes around we will have to talk.

EDIT: Just looked at your growlist and there is definitely some pings I am interested in!!

Thanks, I try to keep it organized, but doesnt stay like that for long. Ive tried just placing pullings in plastic cups and/or paper towel with little success. When bagged I get very good results generally.

Thought I would update the progress so far with pullings being 3 weeks in. All species have had at least some strikes so far except gracilis, but I think I can see some coming. Some species were 100% success and some were lower with about 20%. Tweezers are in the photo for a size reference.

jaumavensis (5 with strikes)

Sumidero 2 (10 with strikes, quite small but they're there)

gigantea (3 with strikes, again small but there)

moranensis 'alba'(10+ with strikes)

moranensis 'A'(2 with strikes)

moranensis 'Caudata' (2 with strikes)

John Rizzi (2 with strikes, taken from a plant that hadnt grown an inch in 4 months, not sure why it wasnt growing because another John Rizzi directly beside it is thriving, in this case i pulled every leaf off which was about 6 leaves)

potosiensis (1 with strikes)

Then for fun here are some Sumidero 1 seeds sprouting that I got from a plant of mine. So far 7 out of about 50 have sprouted with what looks like a few more coming. These were sown about 4 weeks ago.

This was sown directly in RO water and sprouted about 3 weeks in. 10 were put in water with only one so far, I transfered it to paper towel the day I saw it sprout.

I hope you won't mind me adding to your thread. Below are the pics of recently made pullings. The soil is: milled LFS/Sand/APS

Dont mind at all gill_za, they look great.

I had a little time tonight after the hockey game, so got the pullings potted up. My main camera was a dead battery so I just took photos with my phone, which means they are low quality but oh well.

P. potosiensis

P. moranensis "Caudata"

Also took a few other photos today of pings that were looking good.

I believe this is P. moranensis "Caudata" but would have to check the tag.

Also thought Id add some photos of my growtent as it sits now. Hoping soon I can add a second table in and another five 4' T5's so I can separate mine pings from the other plants and level out the lights.

And the fan/duct system that runs outside. It is hooked up to a thermostat with night drop feature. Set 75F day, 52F night. Humidity is also set to 80% but stays between 70 and 80%. Tent is 6.5' long, wide and tall.

Thanks Brie and Jim!

Newspaperfort, they are leaves which have been pulled off from the main plant. After a few weeks they will create plantlets from the very tip where the leaf connected to the main plant. In the most recent photos they are at 6 and a half weeks. The ones that are browning were carnivorous leaves, the ones that are still green were succulent leaves. Both generally work good but the carnivorous leaves have a high success rate in my experience.
