    FWIW:

    Lighting = 6 bulb T5 w/Giesemann Powerchrome "Midday" Full spectrum bulbs
    (very nice spectra, good red performance)
    18/6 summer photoperiod
    12/12 winter photoperiod
    Distance to plant: <6"
    Humidity >80% w/constant gentle airflow when lights are on
    Temps = winter 50ish F/ summer 68ish F with minimal (if any) day/night differential

    Substrate:
    Approx, I don't measure too closely... a hand full of this a hand full of that, must drain extremely well but hold moisture and provide structure for the root mass.
    1p APS/Turface
    1p Cypress bark
    1p LFS
    1p Perlite
    Just a touch of sand

    Monthly Ampacbiotech.com Trichoderma atroviride application
    Monthly Root feeding: 1/4 strength Maxsea or Non Urea orchid food
    Pitcher feeding: Cichlid Fish pellets and dehydrated flies (reptile food)

    that's the whole routine,

    wow m8! That looks awsome. You still haven't built up that new plant rack...haven't you?? Tsk tsk!! Now if you would have already made it, you would have gotten room to let that beast grow un-controlled.

    Ah!
    Glad yer' a patient man! And not one to "rush"!
    Such that lends itself to the decision to sharing some wealth
    instead of just making room for more!

    Some day perhaps one of these plants will be large enough to divide and share...

    [Am thankful you do both!]


    it is what makes this hobby most enjoyable...
    Well, one of the things!

    Take care!

    (Nice red roots you have there! Like a beet! Wow! On my pitcher, I have no idea what's under that sphagnum!)
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
