    Heli experiment

    I moved this one to a room with an extra nighttime air conditioner a few months ago. It has a light but it is not left on as much as the other.

    and I left this one in an aquarium with much more light but no drop in temp. at night.

    Both are setting on a window sill and have artificial light.
    So, the one with less light and a drop in temp. at night has more color and looks more natural.
    The other has grown more and the pitchers are larger but is spindly looking and has no color.
    So, my question is this - Does having a drop in temperature at night cause the red coloration?

    The green things are hydroponic hydrating beads. That was another experiment and it works!

    In winter, if you have a good night time drop, this will bring you a good red color on the pitchers. In my winter setup, i provide a 8-12C to my helis at night.
    You will end with a strong deep red coloration like this:

    More light=more heat=big and green.
    Less light=less heat=small and red.
    More light+less heat=big and red.

    I love math. Don't you?

    Thanks, all. I do love that math. But not algebra.

    And, I moved the other one to the air conditioner.

    Oh, and another question. Don't you think there are two plants in both pots? I would love to separate them and offer them on the forum but I don't want to disturb their growth in any way. I got both of them from generous people on here and I would love to pay it forward. Just not sure how to do it.

    I've been trying to find those balls. Do you have a link? Are they inert?
