    Heliamphora...what a difference light can make...

    I have a hardened H. minor, that grows happily outside of a terrarium and without any special humidity or temperature control. I have been growing it on a windowsill and last time I repotted I took a division off it and put it under one of my lamps, on my open grow shelf.

    Here's a comparison:

    Grown under lamp

    It's like getting a tan. More light is better.

    Hi Butch,

    I used what a member in another forum refers to as 'disco lights' It's a combined red, blue and white LED lamp.

    Oh, I didn't think think LEDs were sufficient as primary lighting. :O

    If you supply enough wattage they are. 15W or LED is quite pokey, as it can be focused onto the plant. As most of the light is also in the photosynthetic band, it is actually much brighter to the plant than a 15W fluorescent light.
