    Growing Pings indoor

    Can anyone suggest a good light for growing pings indoors? I want to set up a terrarium in a 10 gallon tank. Thanks!

    They don't need fancy lighting to thrive. Mine are under T8's that haven't been changed in about 8 years and they do pretty well.

    P.agnata 'True Blue'


    P.sp. Tehuacan


    P.laueana


    P.moranensis


    P.sp. Tonala 'ANPA-C'


    P.sp. Tonala 'ANPA-A'


    P.sp. Sumidero II


    P.sp. Pachuca


    P.rotundiflora


    P.moctezumae


    P.macrophylla

    I grow mine under 4 t5ho tubes. I had them under 2 tubes for a bit, it definitely wasn't enough they grew alright but there is a huge difference now. If you want something specific to fit the tank I'm sure there are some aquarium fixtures available. Otherwise any 2ft fixture should work. I still have some from HTG in use on one shelf of my grow rack.

    EDIT: I don't have a bunch of flowers to show but the plants themselves looked better after the light upgrade. They colored up much better and growth got a lot more compact on some species. But like I said they grew alright still.

    I have a P. 'Gina' and a P. 'Aphrodite' close under T5's next to my sundews and they seem to do alright. They both color up decently and have plenty of dew though the Aphrodite is reaching up a lot which seems to indicate that it would like even more light. It's still growing fast though.

    Very well grown plants Cthulu. Im on my 1st ever pings &, to my surprise, they are extremely fast growers. I can't wait to see some flowers after viewing your pics. Which types of pings do you have telamont?
