    Yes, and under the greenhouse bench is what I usually hear for lighting. Diffusion from scrim would probably do the trick.

    i got these from Jefforever. They are being grown under a bench with a curtain of 50% shade cloth.


    Based on my previous attempts to grow prolifera and adelae outside i think it is working. I am guessing that this species wants it a bit cooler than does adelea (i have one tucked under here and it inst growing very well)

    I would not be. Give you a quick and dirty comparison. With adelea i got it going under six t-12, four foot bulbs over a 10 gallon fish tank. Also had them under two 55 watt AH supply compact fluorescent. Both no problems. Take them outside in partial shade they fried in days. Saw similar things with my first few attempts with D. regia. Figured shade from noon day sun and would be Ok.... nothing doing. My case is sort of special. I have come to the conclusion living at a high elevation area in the sub tropics I am getting some very intense light and probably tons of UV. I really doubt that indoor lighting can compare to the sunshine I get in the noon-later afternoon period (well not unless you got unlimited monetary resources) .

    This video by Seigfried Hartmeyer should give you an idea of the natural habitat. As I recall some of this is in the "Snap Tentacles and Runway Lights" video if you downloaded that previously.

    Nice. The narrator has an interesting accent. Welsh maybe?
    Great info - thanks NaN! This is definitely a plant on my want list. Anything to dispel its intimidating reputation is a big help.
