here on Terra to the one on the Nep forum to the one that matters on BE website. This last link has a bunch of good pics & good info - lots of which I did not know. Happy reading. (yes - these plants are of HL origin according to Rob - specifically ~6k ft / 1.7k meter).

Thanks Ron...I've been looking everywhere for those.
Although it's funny how they mention that they grow in full sun....because mine seems to react much like a vampire would.
Snapperhead, t5HO lights could burn you if you were not used to the light intensity. Just like humans who have been inside all winter cannot step outside into blazing sun should expect some sunburn. If the plant is grown in lower light, it has to be aclimated slowly to the stronger light or else you get burns. The reason you have never seen sunburned plants in the wild is because the plant has grown in the same spot its entire life and is used to the suns intensity already. Take a plant grown under a tree and suddenly remove the shade of the tree and you will have a sunburned plant.
I have grown a house plant pathos in full sun, but I burned the crap out of it when I took down its shade tree, till it got used to the higher light levels without the shade of the tree.
i burnt neps last month under t5 lights,i moved them onto a window ledge for about three months,then back under the lights as the days got shorter,the window got not much light,they burnt bad and quick,i will not do that again in a rush,i obviousley should of gave them a bit at a time,but i think if introduced more sensibly to the higher lighting they would of been fine
OK back from the trip, see there is a few more posts .
As far as your plants burning is because there not hardened, plants grown soft , because of the lighting , and later you will get problems unless you get real light to them , plants are supposed to have natural sun light to grow well. , with out being rude or being nasty here , please post your oldest and largest plant grown under lights and we can see the difference between plants grown in low , artificial and sun light , its open to any one don't care , say min of 4 or 5 year old plants up , may be !!
any how will be good to see some plants up if people are willing , but like them to be home grown you self not some one else's
so lest see the difference between natural sun and artificial lighting !! hard grown against soft grown !!
so i will start off with a few medium size ones and up the anti from there
No rulers for scale....but we work on the honor system around here and the colors speak for themselves.
