    Gettin' some color...

    By far, the best investment in equipment I have ever made was getting a T5 HO bulb and strip fixture. I have had it for several months now, and my Heliamphora pulchella is starting to show proper pitcher morphology, and is obviously loving it!


    In the back, you sorta can see than older pitchers have that deep red/maroon color to them, hopefully the newer, more properly shaped, pitchers will also get that coloring as they age.







    In the last two there, you can really see the difference in pitcher shape between the older (in the front and way back) and new (in the middle) pitchers.

    Amazing what a bit of good light can do! I immediately started noticing better coloration in my CPs after adding more high intensity light.
