Just a few pics to share. I recently built a new enclosure for my plants and words can't describe how happy I am with the result/s...
First off is a pic I took quite a while back just to give an idea of the size of the previous enclosure (100x60x40cm) under a single 400W HPS:
Now it takes up more room, lit by one each of 125W CFLs (2700K and 6400K) and a single 400W HPS, set on separate timers (CFLs morning/evening, HPS day). The sun shines through in the mornings when the weather allows. It measures 120x60x90cm:
And now for a few plant pics.
I have to say I'm very far from unhappy with the BE plants I got via a supplier in Poland. This is N. inermis x bongso with N. petiolata in the background (huge plant!). Many thanks once again go to the good folks in Poland and Borneo Exotics:
N. ephippiata and N. macrophylla battling it out for best pitcher:
Wistuba's N. macrophylla, which I received on 24/11/2005. The small blackened leaf was just about unfurling when the plant arrived. Not a fussy grower at all so far! Now at approximately 7" across after a year under my care:
I'm very happy with its progress. The pitcher on the left is from 2 leaves ago (the one after not being much different in aspect):
I'm excited to see what the growing season will bring!
Thanks for looking!
