    I don't do a thing later in the season and through the winter -- no supplemental lighting whatsoever. The bright indirect lighting they receive even in the course of a twelve hour winter day is sufficient and the Nepenthes and Heliamphora have produced blooms every year . . .

    Here is a shot from this morning (pardon the blurry handheld shot at 0-dark-thirty) of one of the windowsill Nepenthes -- N. ventricosa x bongso . It is beginning to finally produce a crop of pitchers after first attempting to overtake the kitchen window. The vine is currently crossing the ceiling . . .

    Love the windowsill! Wish my Neps and Helis would catch some bugs in my window. :/
