    That's weird. I thought I already posted here.

    Fantastic! I don't think your lighting is bad at all.

    Thanks for the kudos!
    The plant is grown in a big terrarium with RH ranging from 45% to 80% during the day and 85% to 100% at night. Lighting is supplied by a single 400W high pressure sodium bulb, with added blue.
    Night temperatures are out of control at this time of the year, since I depend on the outside air to cool the terrarium down to a desired 48F (in winter, at least). Nothing seems to want to give up the ghost despite it all though! I like to grow my plants hard, so they don't flinch if I have to move them out of their already hostile home.

    Cheers

    imidacloprid is Marit and it is not a mitacide! It can make a mite infestation worse because it kills off the beneficial insects that keep them in check. It has been described as Mite Viagra. Frequent mite population explosions occure if you have a mite infestation and use this stuff. It is great and I love the stuff. Just not for mite protection so your plant definately did not have mites or it would have gotten worse.

    Your Hamata looks great! Thanks for sharing. I long for one of these plants.

    srduggins You can get this insectacide by the brand name of Merit in the states. It only sold as a concentrate under that brand name. Lowes is carrying it now too. It is sold there as the brand name of Bayer advanced. There are several different treatments to get so make sure you get the ones without fertilizer added. I persoanly use the rose and flower premixed psray bottles. They are 5 bucks a bottle. The Merit consentrate is more economical if you have a large collection. They also sell a bottle of Bayer for trees ans srubs, but you would have to figure out how to mix it since its not listed on the lable for flower use and it would be illegal for me to suggest you use it, but its the same active ingredient.
