    More LEDs

    Butch,

    So, how are things "growing"?
    I did see some LED spotlight "bulbs" with the chips in them recently, and almost bought one (around $20) just to play with! (Immediately thought of you and your experiment.)

    Also...Here's some of the "cutting edge" Reef Aquarium LED fixtures I recently saw, that people are using.

    I know there are others, but these seem to be the up and coming ones from what I read.

    Just thought you might want to buy a half dozen... to try them out.
    They are a bit out of my budget however.
    Guess I will have to wait until... well, I will just say I likely won't be getting one soon!

    Interesting to see what it out there and what people are doing.
    I don't know if all this relates, but it was interesting to see, and I immediately thought of you!

    Ah, the fun we could have if only I had won the lottery!
    Well, for now, it is the sun for me!

    Take care.
    Paul

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    D. cape red update...

    The plant took a long time to recover after shipment. I had placed it in my ICU tank (gentle lighting) and it did start to recover. The new growth was green but it appeared to be over the hump.
    But when I placed it under the LED, it died back again.

    Not sure of what conclusion to draw from this, with only the one plant and it having issues to begin with... maybe the stress of the increased light level was just too much too soon. But odd that the cape alba seemed to absolutely love the LED under the same conditions... I just dunno

    I'm going to put it back in the ICU tank and move on to the next plant.... if i can get it fully recovered I may try it again

    (Crissy is laughing in the background cuz she knows I have killed every cape given to me LOL, they just don't like me for some reason)

    :P

    Av,

    Any thoughts on how Heliamphora would fare under white LED? I've seen beautiful colouration on H. pulchella grown under intense light from a 35W metal halide tight-beam spot so was thinking that a tight-beam LED at a shorter distance might perform similar.

    That's why I was thinking of H. pulchella. I've got one on the way so might try it under a 7W LED spot

    I've just ordered a 4200K version of these: http://www.lighting.philips.com/gl_e...10_philips.pdf. I have a Heliamphora pulchella on its way from Germany and I intend to try to grow it under one of these lamps. Results to follow
