    Usually anywhere from 14-16 hours per day. Its not on a timer, I just turn it on when I get up in the morning and off before bed.

    What are you using for your growing area? So you are using only what 40 watts? So 46 watts from CF's should be good then. They grow my others but now I only have 1 on my hamata.

    From Chronokiento

    "I see... that's good news for me since I've had my eye on N. 'Predator' which is hamata and truncata if I remember correctly.. if it has inherited hamata's tolerance then I'll actually be able to keep it alive!

    Edit: I just remembered that elgecko grows hamata as a windowsill plant! Duh!"



    Hi Chronokiento, i think it's the other way around. The truncata makes the hybrid more tolerant, since this plant can grow under highland conditions being a lowland. A nice plant for any beginner.

    Yea the predator is way more easy to grow I've found out. I have one pitcher now and like 6 on the way now as a windiwsill right now. They are just hard to find and expensive.
