    By threshold, David means that the intensity of the light must reach a certain level to induce the production of
    anthocyanins (or some other pigment that Helis possess). The threshold is basically the level that must be reached to cause some sort of reaction.

    I do imagine that Nepenthes can reach maturity through artificial lighting, though it may take a very long time.

    Ah, alright. In that case, I had always understood that Helis needed quite a bit of light to color them up, I guess that means I can lower my Heli a bit further away from my lights.

    Thank you! This whole thing is an experiment, that's half the fun of this hobby for me. My plan is to build a greenhouse as soon as I'm able. I'll just keep tinkering with my setup until that day. As of now everything in the wine cooler is growing well.

    Here you go... not much to see unfortunately


    I received the U. campbelliana just as it was about to flower and unfortunately I never got around to taking a picture of it when it was in bloom. You can see the dead flower in the top center.
