    Thanks everyone!
    Here are the specs for this plant:

    Lighting: Growing 3” away from a single 4-foot T-8 fixture with a mix of one cool and one warm Eco-Lux T-8 bulbs. 16-hour photoperiod

    Temperature: in late winter/spring when it produces the most nectar, the temps are ~70-75 in the day and ~58-65 at night in the basement.

    Humidity: 40-50%

    Pot height: Growing in about 6 inches of media (using a clear cover from a rack of 100 writeable CDs with a hole in it for drainage)

    Media: Growing in Charles Brewer mix with a topdressing of living sphagnum.

    Amph: lol well I actually can’t take too much credit for them since my parents have been the ones keeping my plants alive while I’ve been away at school for the past 3 years…They are incredibly amazing parents and somehow always remember to fill up the trays once a week! For example, I’m in San Diego this summer for an internship so once again, my parents are stuck watering my plants again :/

    Dex: Yeah, it’s just a typical ceph

    BigBella: Interesting. So it usually loses this with maturity? If so that’s too bad…

    Davy and mass, yeah there’s a huge clump of D. adelae which resulted when I pulled out the fewer larger plants that were dying off a few years ago and haven’t fed them. There are several D. prolifera that have spread throughout there as well. Below is a panned out shot from last year…

    Mass, really nice plant! I really love seeing the nectar on the lids like that.

    I didn’t get a full panned shot this year, but here’s one from last spring.
    (Unfortunately the coloration is a bit off cuz I lifted up the fixtures for the shot… and I've since pulled out that larger Adelae since it was starting to take over)


    Prolifera next to a ceph pitcher:

    ...and here’s the adelae and prolifera in the clump, If you’re interested
