The plant is about 14" tall, the nodes started spacing out about 2" or so opposed to the 1/2" or less spacing when still a rosette. Some of the leaves immediately after the rosette stage are spaced maybe 3" or more, but they started clumping together again the last few leaves. I'll try to get a picture of the entire plant. If these aren't uppers and I'm pleased with these, I wonder what the true uppers will be like!
    Ahh, perhaps yours HAS started its vining stage. I was under the impression your plant was a much younger seedling. In general, uppers become a lot more bland than lowers, N. lowii hybrids and the sort excluded. Time will tell!

    Just applied the shade cloth, and boy, is it shady! Hopefully that helps with the temperature, both cooling during the day and heater during the night. I'm in the process of testing both. Currently, I have the swamp cooler running. It did maybe lower the temperature by 5 degrees, but the humidity shot up. When I walked in, I got really light headed. I'm going to go get some ice to test it out with that now. As far as the heater goes, it only kicks on for a short amount of time, but while its on the temperature is raised a lot.

    Thanks! I really wasn't planning to do edibles, but I got pushed into it lol. Today I bought a pineapple tomato and a gold medal tomato...

    The upper, if it is in fact an upper, on this plant looks a lot better than the lower in my opinion. The shape is nicer and so is the peristome. The peristome is so dark red it almost looks black near the top where the lid is. I'll get another picture of it all colored up.

    Here's a pic of it with the shade cloth on... I left the door open about 6" today which usually cools it off a few degrees from what it usually gets (100F at some points on a warm day, today was a warm day) and I checked it during the part of the day it gets the most sun. It was only a few degrees warmer than the outside air, so the shade cloth is really helping!



    And some veggietables and some flowers germinated! I forget which are which and since I'm not very familiar with most vegetables or flowers, I guess I'll have to wait until they bloom to find out what is what. I do know that both on the far right of each row are eggplants... And the first to the farthest one on the left on the top row is some sort of flower.



    My nep seeds haven't germinated after two months. I think they're duds.

    Looks great Pineapple. Dont give up on the nep seed. I had some just start to germinate after a couple of months on the media.

    In a pot of N. tentacultata seed, I see I have a few late starters germinating this week. The seeds were sown October 21, 2011.

    Argghhh great thread! Although it makes me a bit sad, wish I had this kind of space and equipment! Thanks for sharing, it looks great.

    I've also sown tomatoes, gourd, thyme and a couple of different stuff this year. Some like the tomatoes have grown huge, can't wait to collect some fruits. Good luck with yours!

    Meh... I'm still afraid the sphagnum they're on is going to catch on fire with that light lol. I don't think I'll keep it up much longer than the beginning of summer, or I may just move it to the greenhouse and if they grow, they grow!

    Wow! I'll give mine a bit more time then. May move them out to the greenhouse once the heater and cooler are set.

    Haha, thanks! I just bought ten strawberry bulbs and some more eggplant seeds. Hopefully those will do well too. Hopefully my passiflora will flower soon, but it looks like crap just like the coffee...
