    Couple Hummers Giants.

    Many of my plants were slacking for some time, but they are doing much better this Spring.
    Pitchers are still forming and have not really colored up yet. The pitchers can and have been bigger, I'm just glad they are healthy again!
    The last two pictures show the tell tale wide center rib Hummers have when they are happy. Hope you like.
    I will try and get more pictures up soon.

    Thanks,
    There not quite beasts yet, but they are coming along.
    They grow in the basement under T-5's
    There not in a tank or anything so I don't think the humidity is very high. I have a fan blowing on them so they get great air circulation.
    They are all in a tray that I flood to about a half inch. After about a week it's all dry and I let them sit a few more days then fill again.
    There not always sitting in water though. I have had good success growing them outside, but better success growing inside.
    They were all trying to flower but I snipped all the spikes. Cuttings are doing good too. It's nice and cool in the basement.

    BioZest,
    Yes the larger one I brought to the meeting.
    I'm hoping they look even better for the fall show!

    This is a Hummers Giant I grew outside a few years ago.
    Springtime with the cool nights and bright sun really turned it blood red.
    I brought it back in when the summer heat really started to set in.
    You have to adjust them to the bright sun slowly. You can burn them like most anything else.
    Just wanted to show you all how red I got that Hummers giant.

    I said this in our PM, but I'll say it again here because I can actually see it in these pics..
    I've heard that with intense light, the pitchers don't grow as large but do show their max potential with coloration.
    I see in these pics, the same plant has (IMO) massive green pitchers. But when completely colored up they're nowhere near the same size.
    Could just be the pics, or my eyes playing dimensional tricks on me.. However, if that's true I think this plant has shown a prime example of both. Great color, and great size.
    If I've been misinformed, does anyone have a massive pitcher pic that is showing full potential in coloration?
