    Not too much to update on, but the gemmae has sprouted. Yay! Still no signs of the drosera seeds that I put in there though.

    I noticed my plants were showing signs of light deficiency. I tried to find another ballast so that I can add some more light to the tank. Apparently 24" ballasts for T12s are impossible to find here. So this is my solution until I can find one at a garage sale.



    Tada! Car shade thingy. Hopefully this'll make a difference. It does already look brighter inside....

    T12 lights are being phased out.

    I know I'm just in denial lol
    I can't find the right T8s though either, otherwise I'd get the T8 ballast and just go that route. Its a little bit annoying, they sell the right bulb but no ballast for it, but when I choose a ballast they do have, they dont have the right bulb. Thus the garage sale route.
    I noticed a ton of LEDs now too, but I don't know enough about them for growing plants.

    A little update: Things weren't going so well due to not having enough light. I finally broke down and bought two T8s a week or so ago. I can already see the difference they're making.





    Some U. gibba in the pond area. This plant dwendled down to strings with no traps due to the lack of light. But as you can see its starting to get back to its former glory!


    There was some major elongation in the pygmy sundews and no traps what so ever, however now you can see that they're finally starting to have trapping tentacles...



    For camparison, here is the same sundew planted at the same time, but grown outside instead... Amazing what a little light can do
