Cultivation of hardy pings

Recommended Posts

Dear CP growers,

I am delighted to report some success in the cultivation of P. grandiflora.

Please take some time to review the picture below. In 2012, I received seed and experienced a good rate of germination. Spurred on by the 'buttery', I purchased what must surely be a piece of fake tufa from the local aquarium specialist. It's a kind of chalk or Normandy stone that's been subject to water erosion. Pitted and knobbly, in short ideal material to stuff with a peat/clay mix and to semi-submerge in a bowl of rainwater. A few years later, and the seedlings have been transplanted into the moss. In 2015 or 2016 they flowered, and again this year too.

What I like about this, is that here you have a stable and showable method of cultivating your hardy pings!!!
