    It's probably low humidity or somethin. It doesn't get cold enought for the rajah.

    for coolnes: Every night, I freeze an ice pack and 3 bottles of water...then I place 2 of these over the shelf, above the rajah. I can feel air like 10 C hitting the rajah. I do it similarly with the ramispina.

    Hmm humidty...for the most part its around the 70 range and higher at night.

    But, zero, shoplights are cheap..I agree. The fixtures are expensive. I bought the one I use for my VFT's and all for 36$ since it has an electric ballast and T8.

    Fixtures aren't very expensive; but, it probably depends on your bulbs. I'm not sure how they are for T8's; but you can get seriously cheap T12 fixtures. Of course, you won't get as much power and light from T12's but they work well enough.

    So you guys are suggesting that probably low light is an issue?? Is there any other tips for the rajah, based on my conditions that i am providing?

    thanks,

    4ft shoplights come with everything but the bulbs, including ballast and cord for $7-8. You just put two bulbs in and plug it in.Bulbs are $2 a piece or $10 for ten cool spectrum. they work great for me.
    peace, zero
    ps
    I'll post a pic if you want

    I'm not too sure if low light is whats causing your plant to grow like that, it might aswell be a shock.
    The reason why I dont believe in the low light theory is because:Low light -> less photosynth. -> grow bigger leaves -> more photosynthesis from the same power of light.

    A vft grows wider leaves aswell if it doesnt get enough light.

    Yeah the reason the rajah looks like that is from shock. All I was getting at is the fact that more light never hurts...unless you put it in the sun of course
