I bought three unidentified pings from Peter Pauls Nurseries last
summer, two of which are still alive. They have begun doing very
strange things, although my limited knowledge of botanical
terminology prevents me from describing it in detail.
Basically they seem to be forming very small, reddish orbs at the
center of their rosettes. Anyone have any idea what this could be?
Could they be forming their winter resting buds? I'm also curious to
know what species they are, if anyone with more knowledge of pings
out there knows what the Peter Pauls plants are.
