    question about light and my ramispina

    I have this small N. ramispina


    Since I got it the leaves have turned a purple color and the latest pitcher aborted and dried up.
    I am wondering if this nep doesn't like a lot of light.
    It's about 5 in. under two 40 watt cool floro lights, and gets direct sunlight morning to mid afternoon.
    should I reduce the amount of light?
    my other neps seem to like the lighting situation.
    peace,

    AFAIK N. ramispina is one of those neps that get AMAZING coloring in the leaves. if its growing and pitchering. its fine.

    It is nothing to be worried about. Some nep leaves just get more reds/purples in their leaves.

    Don't discount the fact that it could be a fungus

    Indeed. But saying 'too much light' is a factor is probably silly. As sunlight is multitudes of times brighter, and they grow in it in the wild! Even if only filtered sunlight.

    Yes Neci, Really filtered :P. Only 2% of the sunlight hits the ground in the rainforest.
    I dont think thats fungus. They are so evenly colored and fungus usually wont color it that evenly. Nice plant BTW:P

    I grow a N. ramispina under alot of light, and it looks similar to your plant. If you give it less light, the leaves should grown green again if that is what you prefer.

    Thanks for the input. now I know I'm not frying my little ramispina
    It's not fungus, the leaves colored up very quickly after I recieved the plant.
    The plant does get DIRECT sunlight in addition to the 80 watts of floro light that is on 4-10pm.
    I just thought it was too much because the newest pitchure dried up and died.
    peace,
