    binata Coromandel NZ is coming back around. Come next year, however, I'm moving starts of every binata variety I have outside with the Sarracenia, as the test plants out there are doing better than the indoor ones have in years. Go figure....

    Ironic too, that the spatulata "Fraser Island" always do better in every pot except the ones I want them in....

    Put in a slightly stronger light with my Mediterranean-climate greenhouse, and the D. capensis forms are appreciating it. Here's typical and 'Albino'

    Is there any way you can get more light to them, I'm sure you'd see a ton more thick tentacles and darker/more developed colors.

    I love all the pictures and your variety is great.

    I hesitate to give advice here because I respect the ability you are clearly demonstrating to grow this wide of a variety, but I know the look of those thin tentacles and leaves. No doubt they will continue to plug along and flower for you, but just some food for thought I suppose.

    Plenty of people have tried to tell me I need more light, and what I can say is this: if someone wants to donate enough money to set up some really good lights, by all means! Otherwise, I am a college student who has no extra money for that right now, and I rely on what I can afford when I can afford it. I've upgraded lights here and there over time, a lot of these plants wouldn't be alive otherwise, but there is a cost limit.
    And for some of the plants pictured, my camera is terrible at catching the true colors and so a lot of them are much more red than the pictures suggest....

    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.
