"I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one."
oops-it was something like a 23w but was the equivalent of 100w. Sorry 'bout that.
I had terrible luck with P. moctezumae
Snap off the part that's black, spray with a fungicide if you want to use it as a preventative measure, and it should come back from one (or more!) nodes.
The equivalent doesn't matter. I don't know how many times I've said this I don't think people read what I say You can throw the concept of it being anything like 100 watts out the window. That's what it LOOKS like to a human. To a plant, 23 watts is just 23 watts, which is to say practically nothing. It's sort of like decaffeinated coffee. Why bother? I don't like compact fluorescents. They have too much restrike. If you grew it under a more powerful source of light, the difference in the plant's performance would be like night and day.
My capes grow fine and I don't even give them a second thought when I'm watering, potting, etc...
I regret little to nothing!
