Hi!
I’m 99.9% sure that my ping is P. x “Sethos”. Can anyone verify this?

10/10 Sethos. Checks out because of the flower. If it was a emarginata hybrid, or a cyclosecta hybrid, the flower would appear different.

I have another plant (actually from a leaf pulling of the one in the picture), so I have plenty! Let me know any time if you want to trade!

What is leaf pulling?

It's when you pull a leaf off a plant, a butterwort in this case, put it in some moss, and in some time, new plants grow out of the leaf. Cool, right?

Fascinating. I knew I could do that with my Snake Plant (it's not a flytrap plant). I didn't think CPs did the same (I assume not all of them).

I did, however, accidentally yank a D. Regia off its roots. I didn't really examine it, but in a freak-out moment, I just sat it back in place and prayed it'll grow new roots.... seems it did. I wonder if I can leaf pull with a Regia.... these things refuse to put up flowers.

Leaf pullings/cuttings work with Venus flytraps, butterworts, sundews, bladderworts, Cephalotus, Venus flytraps, Genlisea, and even Heliamphora!

I've been buying seeds for plants I already have for no reason! I'm gonna begin ripping off the limbs of all my plants like the weirdo kids do on TV with the barbie heads. :twisted:

Seriously though... do I have to peel off a leaf or can I cut it with scissors near the base?

Sooe pings, but not too many, can develop new plants along the edges of the leaf, as long as not too far from where the stem connection was. However, it is much more reliable to get the whole leaf. There are also a few pings that can develop new plants at the tip of the leaf.

Regarding the questionable Sethos, please consider that there are many pings and ping hybrids out there that look very similar, both in leaf, growth habit and flower. I believe we do a disservice to the developer, the hobby and the potential recipient of a plant so labeled. There are people out there that don't really care much that the plant they have is correctly named, without questionable circumstance. But others, such as myself, do care. I would label that plant as "maybe Sethos". Also consider that there is another registered cultivar, X 'Weser" that has the same species as hybrid parents that looks similar.
