    Lol, guitar hero.

    Thanks for the pic and info about your conditions. I'm going to have to get some bigger and better lights like yours, one of these days...

    Same here, my lighted terrarium has turned into a propagation chamber. All my Neps have outgrown it, so I'm using it to germinate Nepenthes, Drosera, and Utricularia seed, as well as establish some cuttings.

    I'm thinking that the seed may appreciate a temperature drop for fast germination like you got. My terrarium stays warm all day and night, and I only got a few germinations so far, after a couple weeks.

    Oh, BTW, I'm real sorry for hijacking your other thread. I didn't mean to get off-topic.

    I hope to get my seeds planted soon.

    Kris could you take some pictures of your light setup? I have 4 CFLS on a ten gallon aquarium and it easily gets up to 90 if it wasn't for the ice I keep replacing in it to keep the temps lower for the villosa.
