    Aww yes, the ultimate limiter, the money.

    I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the whole light vs. money thing. I'm not sure if it's against the rules to say that I just went to the local walmart and got those huge lights that are several feet long. they are pretty cheap even though you gotta replace the bulbs once a year. Of course, at the height of my collection I still had fewer plants than you do so...

    I'm in college also, and purposely let this hobby slip away from me, as I know how much time it can consume (as well as money).

    The main lights I use are the T8 shoplights of various lengths you can get from Walmart or Home Depot. I have a couple stronger lights set in already, and yeah they don't require being replaced as often, but the T8 bulbs last some time and are rather cheap...

    My thoughts exactly, the t8 grow-lights are pretty nice, and you can get them pretty close to the plants if you are willing to sacrifice surface area.

    This is exactly the setup Sundewman uses, tray method with t8s. He stacks the lights though and puts them as close to the plants as possible, 3 inches or fewer away sometimes.

    So the new plants aren't here yet (hopefully by Wednesday), but until then more shots of the plants I do have
    D. platystigma A. I'm hoping for flowers soon, the one plant that flowered in early summer was just a tease
    D. platystigma A by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Also like to see flowers from these : citrina var. citrina
    D. citrina citrina by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Also hoping to see gemmae from my D. roseana and paleacea trichocaulis. Neither have produced yet for me, though they experience the necessary seasonal changes. Any thoughts?
    D. roseana by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Also waiting on D. scorpioides "Pink Flower"
    D. scorpioides by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    aliciae x sp. Lantau, a new hybrid
    D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    and sp. Lantau x spatulata 'Tamlin'. The plants don't look to great, probably in need of a repot, but the flowers are nice
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Tiny D. felix plugging along
    D. felix by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    spatulata 'Tamlin' x "white flower"
    D. spatulata 'Tamlin' x "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    still my favorite hybrid yet, sp. Lantau x capensis typical
    D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis typical by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    southern sun coloring up the tokaiensis x spatulata "white flower"
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    I think some of the plants in the 'Tom Turpin' pot are the result of selfed seeds,as there is some variation now. Still great looking though
    D. 'Tom Turpin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. 'Tom Turpin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    This is the true 'Tom Turpin'
    D. 'Tom Turpin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    anglica Alakai Swamp HI. Very different from my Oregon plants, a thinner profile overall
    D. anglica Alakai Swamp Hawaii by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And the mystery hybrid that popped up with their seeds
    D. anglica Hawaii hybrid by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    one of my forms of tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin'
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And lastly, graomogolensis doing amazingly well

    More pics!
    D. schizandra are starting to take off. The cooler winter temps and lower light (plus addition of fresh sphagnum) are doing them well
    D. schizandra by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The mass of rotundifolia
    D. rotundifolia by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    filiformis typical. I believe this one is going dormant now, so pics may be a while from this one
    D. filiformis typical by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    sp. Lantau Island, always in flower
    D. sp. Lantau Island" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    madagascariensis
    D. madagascariensis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    anglica Oregon is falling asleep as well
    D. anglica Oregon by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    the burmannii "Humpty Doo" haven't been fed in a while, so they're in fully flower and fully red
    D. burmannii "Humpty Doo" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Not sure what it is, but I seem to have finally hit the magic mark with filiformis FL All Red. The big plant has flowered twice in a row, and all plants are in constant full growth now. Though I would love it if I could get rid of that moss and thread algae....
    D. filiformis FL All Red by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    flower from spatulata "Royal Natl. Pk. Sydney" x anglica Oregon

    burmannii green, still refusing to properly flower
    D. burmannii green by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. burmannii green by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    tomentosa is still doing well
    D. tomentosa by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The mystery, supposed anglica Alakai hybrid is flowering
    D. anglica Alakai hybrid by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    And the true anglica Alakai Swamp, HI plants doing very well. I've noticed these plants have a much larger, thinner overall growth form than the Oregon plants
    D. anglica Alakai by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    'Tom Turpin'
    D. 'Tom Turpin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Also have a handful of D. neocaledonica seedlings I'm trying to get to size. It's slow going...
    D. neocaledonica by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Still my favorite hybrid, Lantau x capensis typical
    D. sp. Lantau Island x capensis typical by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    D. felix

    I have an unknown plant that has been growing in my flava "Blackwater" pot, that looks similar to a Lantau or oblanceolata cross, with leaves far thinner than any spatulata form I have. Ideas?
    D. unknown by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    The white flowers of brevifolia are a stark contrast to the red rosettes
    D. brevifolia by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    tokaiensis x sp. Lantau Island
    D. tokaiensis x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    The mat of tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin'. This pot is a mix of both F1 hybrids, and F2 seedlings form the plants that turned out semi-fertile. I've noticed the F2 tend to be smaller though, and more varied as is expected
    D. tokaiensis x spatulata 'Tamlin' by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    madagascariensis x affinis. I've decided affinis must be dominant in this cross
    D. madagascariensis x affinis by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    aliciae x sp. Lantau are turning out beautifully
    D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    D. roseana. You can see the darker red plant near the middle. Under the same conditions as all the others, this one just seems to stay a deeper pinkish tone
    D. roseana by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    capensis Wide leaf have taken off
    D. capensis wide leaf by hawken.carlton, on Flickr

    And lastly, a pot I don't show often because the plants are always in flux regarding appearance, the mat of D. pygmaea "green"

    last shot of the filiformis typical for this year, as it and many of the other temperate dews (all threadleaves incuded) are being put into dormancy
    D. filiformis typical by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    New arrival, D. villosa. It's put out 2 new leaves already in the week I've had it, and is full of dew
    D. villosa by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    Somewhat picky growers oddly, D. spatulata "Ivan's 3-way"
    D. spatulata "Ivan's 3-Way" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    affinis x spatulata "white flower" may oust Lantau x capensis as my current fave hybrid
    D. affinis x spatulata "white flower" by hawken.carlton, on Flickr
    A new contender hopefully is on the way though. A beautiful capensis typical flower, and it was pollinated with affinis pollen. It appears to have taken too.

    I really like the affinis x spatulata "white flower", too. There's something about the look of it that seem unique to me.

    It is very unique. I don't know of any other similar attempted cross (though I think I may have hit on a cross of (ultramafica x spatulata) x affinis, the pod is swelling), and with the climbing nature and the wide leaves it doesn't look like any existing species I know of either. Hopefully I can get them propagated and start selling them so others can grow it...
