    'hummer's red giant'

    lol

    The ping loved the light on every level. The ceph not so much imho.
    It definitely has color. However, growth rate has been at a snails pace.

    I've also noticed that carpet moss especially loves it, and yet sphagnum not so much.
    Not sure if its the far red itself or the overall spectral balance.
    Suspect balance..

    Excellent example of the varied effects spectra can have on one genus/species compared to another.


    May 4, 2015 update
    Ceph growth rate now at a very acceptable level.

    I'll have to pull out the plant physiology book to be sure, but I vaguely recall there being some type of interaction involving far-red spectra essentially nullifying the photosynthetic effects that other wavelengths initiate, assuming the plant is exposed to this light at the wrong time. Granted, what I just said is vague to the point of being useless, so I'll see if I can find a quote for you..

    Missed this thread, mainly because I'm not in this forum often, but I have owned the same Philips lamp for some time and the Heliamphora below has been grown under it. Growth rate has been good, but it lacks a little colouration.
