Greetings plant enthusiasts! As we dive into this Christmas Eve weekend, I'm thrilled to share my top five ping wish list for December. But first, let me extend warm wishes to all of you – Merry Christmas and happy holidays! May this season be filled with joy, love, and delicious food. Now, let's embark on a journey through my top ping picks, paired with a sip of Shubui 10-year whiskey from Costco.

Reflecting on a Plant-Filled Year:

Before we unwrap my December ping wish list, let's take a quick look back at the year. 2023 has been a whirlwind of growth for me – not just in plants but also in turning my hobby into a small business. The community support, whether at plant shows or through comments on my videos, has been heartwarming. From New Zealand to the UK, Canada to Korea, the global reach of plant lovers sharing their passion is truly inspiring.

December's Top 5 Ping Wish List:

To celebrate the holiday spirit, I've decided to focus on my top five wish list pings for December. These are not just any pings but unique specimens that caught my eye on social media and plant groups.

1. Hemiepiphytica x Laueana – The Alluring Purple: A captivating dark purple beauty that I stumbled upon in a Facebook group. The intensity of the color, from the flowers to the stem, makes it a must-have for its striking appearance.

2. Chalice from Just One Little Plant – Tia's Enchanting Creation: Tia, the talented owner of Just One Little Plant, caught my attention with her Chalice ping. This ping boasts narrow leaves with an indentation in the middle, featuring a dark red exterior and a slightly green interior. A unique addition that I'd love to have in my collection.

3. Variegated Ping from Turlock Carnivores – A Splash of Uniqueness: Turlock Carnivores teased the plant community with a variegated ping that has piqued my interest. If rumors are true about its stability, this ping promises to add a touch of uniqueness to my growing collection.

4. Neon Ehlersiae Victoria from Carnivorous Carnival – Axel's Vibrant Creation: Axel from Carnivorous Carnival in Germany showcased an Ehlersiae Victoria with neon pink-fuchsia tips. The two-tone coloration under Spider Farm lights is mesmerizing. This ping is not just a plant; it's a work of art.

5. Pinguicula Jackii from Cuba – Dreaming of Blue: Taking the top spot on my wish list is the elusive Pinguicula Jackii from Cuba. What drew me in is the possibility of a blue flower, which aligns perfectly with my favorite color. A ping enthusiast's dream that I hope to turn into reality.
