    Wanna know what I do?.......grow the light lovers under the light...the shade lovers go around the perimeter of the chamber.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Wish it were that easy Mark. Gotta remember I have a lot more plants than you. So trying to use the limited space and one real light for all of them is more of a pain than you'd think.

    So rehanging this fixture was not as easy as I planned. It's got stupid cables rather than chains, so it was almost impossible to hang it at an angle. Once I got it where I wanted, the light was way too soft and far away. So.. I had to RE-rehang it. I think I've got it just right. Angled slighty to face the plants, far enough away to avoid burning, yet close enough to aid healthy growth. Only time will tell if this will help everyone or not.
    Also, the instant change in light conditions showed an instant affect on the plants. Many of my upcoming pitchers popped prematurely. Four neps with upcoming pitchers all popped them open early, at almost the exact same time.










    SG N. eymae x jacq may just be a coincidence. I think it was just time for this one to pop.



    N. spectabilis x truncata



    SG N. (fusca x veitchii) x coplandii 'Mt. Apo' opened WAY early!!



    N. 'Viscarla' also opened WAY early.. See what I see, just to the left of the pitcher? BASAL!!



    And "Vigorous Clumping" even opened a pitcher at the same time as the neps.

    Hey it looks good!
    Hopefully it's not too dark now so you don't have to mess with rearranging that light fixture again.

    Hopefully.. I'm thinking worst case scenario I'll just have to rearrange a few plants.
