So, here in Florida, we're suddenly getting real seasons
Which means it's terribly cool right now. Too cool for happy Lowlanders.
So I rigged up a mini greenhouse thing for them, with a fluorescent light, and 24-heat via incandescent bulbs (one day, one night).
Most of them have stopped pitchering.
The Khasiana are booming and the Raff is still working on its pitchers like nothing ever happened...everything else though...I miss my pitchers
I had it when my Mirabilis's newest leaf is about half the size of it's previous one.
The temps and the humidity are perfect.
Which leads me to think that lighting must be the downfall.
1- They're freaking cause they've never had so much direct light in their lives before or
2- Irregular schedule is killing them (hopefully not literally).
The schedule is a problem because I don't have a timer. And frankly, would need more than one. So, pretty much, lights go on when I wake up (which can be anywhere from 8:30 am to 3pm), lights go off either an hour after sunset if I woke up early, or about midnight if I woke up late. I never thought the inconsistency would be such a huge problem as long as they're getting like, about twelve hours of light a sitting, but I'm starting to think maybe it is?
