    Wouldn't leaving LFS out wet increase the possibility of mold sor fungus?

    Dew will be more present when in proper lighting, lower light levels and the plants won't produce as much dew. Humidity will affect the plant initially, but once acclimated, dew should be present in lower RH.

    The sarr should be classified as S. Wrigleyana, Scarlet belle is a specific type of Wrigleyana. People often mistake the two.

    The ping could be primuliflora. Or that other southern american native ping that looks a lot like it.
    Thanks, I'm still hoping to the new growth will have dew on it. In either case when I get home from work today I am going to lower the lights...like I said previously I may switch the container they are in as well so I can still have them sitting in water and be about 4-6 inches from the light.

    Its from the membership you get for buying something from Andy. You get 175MB of storage on site and you can post thumbnails like that.

    blokeman - actually, ventricosa when it is young, has wings

    but i agree that it is probably sanguinea judging by the leaf tip...sanguinea are great plants and very vigorous, i have a couple of em as well as a ventricosa, so josh, either way you shouldnt be disappointed. Here is what mature Sanguinea 'Orange' lower pitchers look like



    and if you get a ventricosa, they are quite pretty too and very vigorous as well



    Josh, if you want to know more about growing Sarracenia there in Phoenix, contact Adnedarn the owner of this forum, he can give you a ton of info on growing them there, since he also lives in AZ but in Tuscon i believe....

    Thanks, Ill probably shoot him an email to ask about specifics. My biggest issue outdoors besides the heat is the space and two large dogs that get into everything possible.

    haha i know exactly where your coming from with the dogs XD
    when i lived in Florida we had too large dogs that liked to get into, an destroy, anything they could get their paws, tails, or mouth at...heat was intense there too lol.
    i dont think heat will be a problem to sarracenia though....remember their native range

    After thinking about it for a second I think its more about keeping the soil moist and the roots cool so they don't overheat.

    Some fixes

    So this is what I have done to try and get the plants closer to the light. Iv basically flipped over some Tupperware containers and then used some clean to-go containers as dishes for the pots.

    Hopefully this will work a bit better for them.

    Hmm, i will have to go through some old pics of my vent now, you got me questioning myself now.

    My reasoning behind the sang as choice was based on the pitcher shape actually, how the pitcher seems 'full' in the bottom half, and then there the distinct change halfway up the pitcher where it narrows. That and the wings' 'cillia' remind me of my sang...

    Good growing Josh

    Update with some changes

    Hey everyone,

    Ive made a few changes to the racks.

    First, I got a second set of lights and now have two racks to grow on. Second, I have replaced the tubes in the lights with 6500k 3200 lumen 4 footers...this increases the lumens on each rack by 2050. Last, I put the second set of lights on the rack above the old one which is about 6 inches shorter and I have moved the plants to that rack...they are much closer to the lights now.

    Some new pictures:
