    Well I already have one experiment going with a type of foam padding. If the plants survive a month like that, I'll add the 24/7 method to them.... Poor guinea pings (Pun anyone?)

    Well striated can mean striped or lined and strata can be layers which when viewed in cross-section appears striped so I guess there's a bit of a connection

    I'm thinking he may have done a Norm Crosby or Archie Bunker with the words. It's like saying acclimitized instead of acclimated. With tropical fish, like a Botia striata, it refers to a layered appearance.

    Curious, how this thread with the first two posts concerning Pinguicula and the remainder concerning, ??What?? I can't really tell. Got to stay here in the Butterwort section so long.

    I don't think the 24/7 method is good for Pinguicula. My Sarracenia seedlings undergoing the Bugweed method got badly infested with fungus gnats so I enlisted my Drosera and Mexican Pinguicula as controls.

    My Pinguicula cyclosecta died. One day it was fine, the next day the leaves were misshapen. I moved it back to the windowsill where it had been growing happily for several months. The next day I looked at it closely and the "beak" was brown. The next day I decided to pull a few leaves in the hopes of saving something. As I pulled on a leaf the whole plant toppled over - no root. I managed to pull four leaves but it looks like they have all shriveled away to film.

    I removed my P. debbertiana from the 24/7 a few days prior to the cyclosecta going downhill because it just wasn't catching any gnats.

    They had been under the lights for maybe two or three weeks tops.

    Well, we seem to have a clear consensus on that one. I don't believe I'll risk it, at least not without insurance. Thanks NAN.
