Ping gypsicola, starting to grow

Recommended Posts

Well this is a new experience for me, i actually have a gypsicola which is growing instead of just staying forever in dormany.  Problem is its growing at the wrong time of year, so how do i get it through the winter?  Will it go dormant again?

Ha, that's a very contrary Ping you've got there but at least it's showing it can grow now even if it is in the wrong season.  I had a look at mine and it looks like the first signs of Winter leaves are starting to appear.  When mine was stuck in dormant mode it got through 2 summers with its Winter rosette so hopefully yours will be OK in the reverse situation.  You might have to keep an eye on the watering in case it needs more than normal during Winter.  Or maybe it will just drop back into dormancy at some point.

With Mexican Pings, I just water treat them how they want, rather than what I want. So, if something is awake in winter, I keep it watered.
