New veitchii x lowii from Damon. Thanks again buddy.
Older veitchii x lowii from Zero. By far my favorite plant in my entire collection.
That is until this bad boy starts growing out. I am truly ecstatic I was able to save this cutting. N. truncata x x TM.
And some utric flowers starting to check out.
Stunning as always.
Is that a monster regia in the first pic I see??
Very, very nice setup, jealous. I cannot get enough of your pics. I would love to be able to grow neps, but I do not have a greenhouse...yet, he, he.

Grow List/Wish List/trade list at bottom
I put it in 100% live LFS in a 100% humidity tank for about 60 days until it started showing new growth. At which time I moved it with the rest of the truncata hybrids. Bright light from 8 T5HO's, humidity at about 80%-85%, and appropriate HL temps.
I have 4 54w T5HOs above my highland tank; all 6400k. They're about 6 inches above the top of the plants with a slab of glass in between. How high are your lights? I moved mine up recently cause many of my plants seemed stressed by the light i think; they all showed a lot of red in the leaves. So I'm slowly moving them higher up each week. If you have any suggestions I'm all ears .
I keep mine a ways up and off to a slant. Used to get red leaves when the lights were closer and pointed straight down.
Everything looks great mass!!
