:o :shock: WOW! Both your plants, and you photographic technique are simply stunning. Glamour shots is right! Thank you for posting these. I can't wait for my Moranensis to push some stalks. I'm afraid it won't be til next growing season tho, as it had a rather catastrophic shipping "incident" and arrived in about 12 pieces! :| It seems to be recovering tho.

Thanks again for all the lovely photographs!

Here's one of my ping slowly doing its thing, taken 8/19/15...it was only one leaf (the larger one on the outside) and the heart 7/29/15

Cheers,

how do you keep your pings from "burning up" in full sun? I know Primuliflora hates full sun (or so I've read and experienced) but how do the mexican pings do for hours at a time?

Thank you :D pings are such a weird plant to ship, so if they're not packed well they really get it. Looks like yours is going to bounce back though :)
My moranensis flowered towards the end of their succulent phase :) might be when yours flowers too!

Hmm really? I have a friends primuliflora and asked them what they had it in and they said full sun, so now it's in my full sun and still doing well haha.
I'm not really sure though, I usually don't even acclimate the pings to full sun I just throw them out there and they do fine.
It's weird I hear a lot of people having a hard time with pings and they just don't give me a hard time for some reason.
I think it's about time someone does a test and grows doubles of different ping species in part sun and full sun and see which grows better ;) (will try this next grow season)

Oh and here is a b52 I'm babysitting for trevor and halia (wildwonderlass and dontsteponmyflora) ((I think that's their names on here))
I did some comparison pics to my Megatraps, it's a beast!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
Okay no more spam of the awesome b52

yea, if my Primuliflora gets any full sun or is outside for an extended amount of time the leaves start going soft.once I bring it inside they stiffen back up...not sure what I'm doing wrong :-/

That's weird! Do you acclimate it or just put it straight to full sun?

ah...good point :-/ that's probably my problem...how should I acclimate them? is it the same way as flytraps? and what about the soft leaves? is that also from not acclimating them you think? sorry for all the questions lol...

and have you ever knocked a ping? I did that on accident today to my Esseriana while moving it; I think some of the new leaves emerging got mildly bruised (just the top part of the leaves turned dark green. the bases are fine). it landed grease-down then rolled upright *cringe*. my poor baby :( good thing these are resilient....except dang those tiny root systems :-/

Yeah acclimating would be the same as anything else, give it a few hours of full sun a day then slowly give it more over the period of a few weeks.
Here's a picture of the one I'm babysitting (took this right now) Image
The leafs aren't like stiff hard but they're not soggy soft. It seems to be doing fine. Gonna keep a close eye on it for any changes in the next couple weeks

Oops forgot to add, the ping you dropped should be fine haha. It'll probably be mad for like a week and snap out of it
