    I ordered that sanguinea as a "sanguinea red". I think it might be BE clone 3162, not sure. For the first couple years I didn't care for it. It didn't get much color to it until it had matured. Younger, the peristomes never darkened at all, they stayed green. It grew about 'normal' for the first 3 years I had it. In the last year though it has really accelerated.

    It's just rack with 3 levels, each level with two t8 fixtures with 2 bulbs each, so 4 t8 bulbs per level. The room I keep it in is on our top floor, with a huge west facing window next to it. So temp control is very tough for me in the summer. I have a dryer tubing venting air from that rooms a/c vent into the tent at night. So, in summer it gets to about 83F in there, about 65F at night. In the fall, winter, and spring, I just open the big window so it gets to about 75F in the day, and I try to keep it above 50F at night.

    We don't have a basement here. We are planning on moving hopefully in a year or so, and a must is that the next place has a basement. This would work much better in a cooler basement than an upper floor room!
