Got this ping back in summer. No idea on the species but my guess is P. gigantea.

Here is a pic a little while after I got it.

Here it was after a frost. I didn't know if it was frost hardy and was busy at the time so just left it out.

Unfortunately, about a week before I brought everything in, something destroyed it in the night. Ate the central growth point and ripped it from the pot. I found it on the ground the next morning. All but maybe 5 or 6 leaves were shredded and/or not salvageable. I was pretty bummed. I don't grow any other carnivorous plants but had heard pings prop from leaf cuttings so I put the leaves that remained in a plastic baggie and left them off to the side of some growlights. Below is the pic after maybe a month.

I transferred them a little while ago to this small cup that I'd gotten another ping (yet unidentified) in from someone in a trade. The below pic is from today.

I'm not sure what to do with them but I'm happy the plant lives on.

Can we see more of the Haworthia? I’m so enamored with those right now…
My guess is that your ping is not gigantea. Maybe a gigantea hybrid? Maybe agnata? The flower looks similar to agnata and pilosa (below).

@Bug_cemetery oh you've made my day asking to see the haworthias, they're my favorites. I'll make a thread in the Other Plants folder and try to tag you. If it doesn't work just check there later and I should have it up.

Little teaser for now. The lights are those gaudy pink-whites from Barrina and plants look awful under them. I'll have to get a proper light and take some pictures.

I genuinely have no idea what the ping is and don't know what characteristics to look for. If you think it's a hybrid then I'll agree.
