Hey everybody, I recently got back into CPs after about 5 years away and the bug has bitten. What started off as having a D. capensis "broad leaf" in a windowsill has quickly grown to a 4 tube, 20 gallon highland terrarium complete with ice bottles and computer fans. Right now all I have in the terrarium is an N. densiflora x ventricosa, P. laueana, and a D. capensis, which, for some reason is acting crazy. When I first put it under lights in a mason jar in a makeshift grow rack ( before I purchased the tank) it was quickly putting out large, green, dew-covered leaves - probably 1 leaf opening every other day. It also sprouted 2 plantlets. Since I moved it to the terrarium the new leaves are getting increasingly small and yellow and don't unfurl, and the plant even aborted a flower stalk. The old normal leaves are still there and look fine. What is going on? I've never had a capensis do anything other than thrive, especially alongside a happy Nepenthes and a newly-awakened Ping.
The daytime temps have, so far, never gone above 75 degrees with the humidity between 60% and 90%. I have 4 T12s on 16 hr timers about 6-8 inches above the plants, and I water with distilled water. Recently I've been experimenting with ways to drop the temps below 60 degrees at night in anticipation of my new arrivals and have been successful. Why won't this plant work with me? Am I overlighting it? Is the photoperiod too long?
