    Ooh.. small eddie pitchers are green? I actually like the contrast the red in the teeth is getting from the pitcher

    Thanks guys.

    WC is for Wild Collected.. or WCS for Wild Collected Seed. probably need a better abbreviation for that...?

    Most my plants are growing in live sphagnum from here in Virginia. I have also used perlite and sphagnum too on a few plants. I find the medium really doesn't matter too much but others may argue that one.

    It would be awesome if just the peristome was red and the pitcher stayed green.... but the entire pitcher will eventually turn orange / red.

    Hmm.. that just gave me a thought. If the plant could survive this way, you could find a magical temp/spectrum combination of light bulbs to inhibit red pigmentations development in the plant.

    I am using a mixture of a T5 and HPS fixtures. The T5 Fluorescent Grow Lights are 6500K and the HPS is probably about 2000K. It is a nice mixture of warm and cool. I use a light meter to dial in the correct height of all the plants from the light, 600-800 foot candles.

    I'd love to see a pic of the entire set up Michael. I've been trying to picture it in my head and it's just not happening.
