that ibarrae looks better than mine, and I gave that pulling to you!

might have to reevaluate my setup here soon, my pings are looking kinda shabby. but with turface they might be saved

Haven't been around these parts in a while and thought I should post some pictures in this thread. You all shared your experiences with me and helped me get started so I pretty much owe you all some pictures :pics:

Welcome back! Your pings are looking ah-mazing! Is your esseriana in a 2" pot? Even still, it looks like it is on steroids compared to mine!

And your propagated starts also look really happy. I recall that you were trying a method of striking them on a paper towel. Do you then move them back to a pot with media? And if you do transfer them - do you wait until they are a certain maturity?

I have a P. agnata leaf that has provided about a half dozen strike buds. Eventually I was thinking I could ease them apart, but am wondering at what point they'll be robust to a little mis-handling.

Really nice collection - thank you for sharing!

Thank you for the kind words! Yes the esseriana is in a 2" pot and has been the happiest pot of them I've had. Lately I mostly just lay extra leaves next to the plants in their pot for pullings instead of going through extra steps but part of that is also because I have the luxury of having multiples of many pings now. I've also become more accustomed to turface as a medium and definitely notice the shorter pots that wick moisture better grow nicer plants and make it easier to have success with pullings. I am pretty much never worried about uprooting most of the Mexican pings as they don't seem to even notice. As far as separating plants it comes down to a judgement call. Some are easy to split apart and some are more difficult in which case I just wait until they grow larger, maybe 1/3rd or 1/2 the size I expect them to be at maturity, and they often will pull apart easier then. If I decide to force apart some stubborn plants sometimes one gets sacrificed into many leaf pullings. It's great to have a lot of them on hand to be able to try what works best so I don't mind having extras.
