    Glabrata experiment

    Between Andrew(Chunkyhunks), Jimmy, and myself. all 3 of us have received Glabrata of the same size from the same vendor, this experiment will test which conditions the plants like more. Ultrahighland/Highland, Normal Highland, and Highland-Intermediate. Pictures can be added at any time, this is not a contest or anything of the sort, but a way to figure out which conditions the plants like most...And its for fun!!! Pictures can be posted any time, and there is no set end time for this yet, my guess will be a year from todays date 10-22-08.

    First off, We have Jimmy's Glabrata. Jimmy, feel free to post pics of it as an update here if youd like, to document its growth pattern. Jimmy's Glabrata is the speciment for Highland-Intermdiate with lower humidity.


    Here is Andrew's Glabrata. He is providing the specimen to be grown in typical highland conditions.


    And we have mine, i will be providing the specimen for the Ultrahighland/Highland conditions...

    Hey,

    This should be really cool! I'm glad to participate - I'll post pics regularly and also post some specifications on its growing conditions at the time of he post.

    Ready, Get set, Go Glabratas, Go!

    Heres a little info about my conditions.
    4 20w 24" fluorescent tubes, 2 Daylight, 2 coolwhite.
    Temps are 75-80F in the day, 45-55F at night.
    Humidity in the day is 70-80%, and at night 90-100%. I water once to twice a week, and the growing media this plant is in is equal ratios of horticultural sand, peat, perlite, long-fiber sphagnum moss, orchid bark and osmunda fiber with a top dressing of LFS and some live LFS

    I'm gonna say that the ultrahighland grows the best.

    I'll beg to differ! Mine is dropping tendrils, working on a new leaf, and inflating a pitcher (on a leaf with a damaged midrib, no less!) to notable size - all in a weighted average of 25-30% humidity throughout the day!



    You can barely see the inflating pitcher in the upper left corner of the pic. I think the samller leaf is from barerooting and shipping stress.

    Sorry that the pic isn't the best; I don't have the opportunity to take pics with sunlight because I get home after 5:30.

    Well done!

    This one stumps me. It has been one of my most stubborn neps. I've had it for 6+ months, and keep it in stable highland to lately ultra-highland conditions, and it refuses to pitcher. It is growing quite well, putting out a new leaf every couple weeks, the long tendrils drop, and then it aborts each pitcher before they start inflating. Yet all my other neps seem to be flourishing (even got my spectabilis to pitcher! yay!). High light, cool temps, moderate to high humidity, no pests, yet it pouts. GRR.

    Edit: Was your sphagnum alive already or did it green up in just the past couple weeks?
