    i have a tek 2 on my highlanders. It's totally adequate, though color could be better. Still, it's really efficient, so that's a plus.

    Yeh I actually received 2 teks and I love them compared to the sun grow fixtures they are small compact and don't seem to heat up as bad. Plus they are alot lighter and they provide o hooks that you can screw right into the fixture which make hanging so much eaier.

    Why would you want to take 2 bulbs out?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I wasn't sure because the leaves on the robi are turning red and I figured that they were just getting sunburnd but I left the lights in and it seems the leaves are just turning red but no further steps toward sun damage are occuring so I plan on leaving them in. I currently have extremes of 83 to 85 daytime to 55 to 52 at night. Even the typical hls seem to be doing good.

    The N. robcantleyi x maxima? Hmm yeah some of those have reddish leaves and others are green, even out in my greenhouse sitting next to each other with exactly the same conditions. Perhaps some variability from the N. maxima. More likely it's from the cooler night temperatures than light intensity. It is very difficult to overlight using fluorescent tubes, even the HO type you are using. The reason I ask is the green color on the N. muluensis x lowii. Normally these plants would be very purple out in the greenhouse so odds are your light if anything is underpowered.

    I actually just received the lowii hybrid the day before I took this pic. Im sure in time it will color up. I know my newest fusca leaf is dark green with a reddish outline. Look pretty neat in contract with the tiny lime green pitcher its pushing out
