could use some help identifying this ping. Likely a hybrid, definitely got it from someone here a number of years ago. Seems moranensis like, but doesn’t go full succulent leaves for the winter. It keeps its carnivorous leaves most of the winter even in temps approaching freezing. Then about a month before it resumes active growth it sheds its carnivorous leaves, grows some succulent leaves in an almost column type fashion (wish I had taken a pic of those at some point) then promptly puts out new carnivorous leaves and starts blooming. And as you can see it grows in a clumping fashion.

Who cares what it's called? That's a great plant.
I had some Sumidero 2. They looked just like your photo but they never split into clumps like that.

Thanks, I’m not overly concerned about it for myself but when it comes time to repot i like to have a proper name if I can for people who receive some.

I'd also say Sumidero just from looking at other pictures online. I didn't see any pics of a specific type 2, but if Hal says it's the dark purple type then I believe there's a good chance that's what it is.

And thanks for the options guys, at least now I could tell someone that it might be moranensis “G” or Sumidero 2. I hate complete mysteries in my plants. I have a couple never do well Sarrs in my pots that have never had names as well. Makes it hard to curse them for not growing lol.

Repotted these pings. 22 plants came out of that little space. For size reference the pot is 21 inches across - same pot they were in before but now it’s just them in there. Placed 2 gigantea in the center. Completely changed the substrate as well; they were in lfs and now are in ground limestone.

An interesting effect of transplanting these pings into pure ground limestone. The new flowers are more saturated with color than the old ones. I tried taking a picture but my phone doesn’t seem to pick up the difference. There’s a definite if small difference to the naked eye though.
