Im an active member and long time reptile enthusiast but im finally getting into tropical pitcher plants. Ive been doing research for about a year on them and finally i decided to order a huge group at a black friday sale. (i got ventricosa's and sanguinea for like a buck a plant.)
I have a couple questions though that i would like answers to if you guys dont mind.
1. Im keeping all highland varieties (loweii,ampulliara,ventricosa,sanguinea) in a 40 gallon tank with two t5 grow lights 12 inches from the plants is that enough light?
2. I bought the ventricosa and the sanguinea in pots and they were in a peat/perlite mix while the loweii and the ampulliara were in pure sphagnum. Is the growing media just user prefered or should different plants be grown in diff medias?
3. Humidity stays around 65% all day and there is a 14 hour light cycle. Is that good?
4. Im feeding fruit flies because most of my plants are small and im using reverse osmosis water that i get from a system i bought on ebay. The RO system is great for all my reptiles and the water is very pure and tastes awsome.
Any comments would be appreciated! Dont be afraid to leave constructive critical comments. I can take it.
P.S. My names chris, nice to meet you all! =)
