    Totally agree. Its really strange that the hamata is thriving with nice succulent looking leaves with nice big pitchers in such low light. My bical used to make small pitchers till I added a new 27 watt and the the pitcher size went up by double and leaves became nice, thick and sturdy.

    BTW....the size of the pitcher is a nice predictor of the conditions. As u can see that pitcher is more than double the size of the leaf it originates on. Which means it definitely loves the light.

    And that's what so nuts. I guess it goes to show you that what works for one person may not work at all for another. I've gotten much better at growing Neps in recent years, but I'm nowhere near mastering the art of their cultivation.

    Unless he gives it supplemental lighting, like a window at the minimum, it won't work. 15 watts is nothing.

    That's what I'm sayin'. I grew some Neps quite successfully in a small terrarium with two 15-watt fluorescent tubes, but I can't imagine a setup with any less light being very effective.
