First off, great job Favi! You responded to your plants' needs and are being rewarded with handsome pitchers.
The "light intensity" debate has been very interesting. In my case, I do the best I can with what is available. I have some
heliamphora in a highland/intermediate greenhouse, where the temperature suits them well, but the light levels are a bit low.
The leaves are mostly green with red highlights. Occasionally, the pitchers show slight etiolation.
The rest of my heliamphora are in the laundry room under artificial light = t5 or a cfl floodlamp. They have a lot more red colors in
the leaves, but the warmer temps seem to result in stunted growth and no flowers. (The mature plants in the greenhouse flower regularly.)
The end of this month, I will be attempting an artificial light setup in a cool basement. Hopefully, this will produce the best results for me.
Thank you to Butch and Mike for their thoughts and photos. I've been enlightened and will continue my efforts to improve my cultivation
Favi, keep up your efforts and and look forward to your future posts, and I should also apologize for contributing to the "hijack" -- I saw the response
by shortbus after I saved this.
