    I still don't believe its sun burn from fluro lights , they just any strong enough , have you light tested them against the sun light ?/ i did and no where near it !, sun burn turns the leaf black and it dies almost mediately , you look to have brown markings there , , in my experience is usually low light , low humidity or low temps , one both or all like this


    not sun burn but low light and cold temps.


    you said the plant was high land , but i can not fine this reference , can you show me the reference to it being high land please
    is this the plant you are refering too

    Both parents of this cross are forms of the Pasian HL form of N.truncata...I'm sure you've heard of it.


    And the first time I had this type of sunburn, it was on a sunny windowsill...iturns out it was from a shaded GH.....this is a second time....and it happened only after I moved the plant closer to the lights...ambient humidity is 70-80%, temps are 78F day, 65F night. The plant has experienced even colder temps without issue in the past...as I said, only happens in a certain distance of the lights, and my normal pasian truncata has had the same issue in the past.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    now im curious as well...do you have a source to cite exo? because i havent seen any information stating that 1) queen/king parents were pasian and 2) they are of highlander origin. all that i DO know about the parents is that they represented a rare possible subspecies of truncata, and the chances of them syncing like this was a very rare event, which enables the immediate persistence of the possible subspecies.

    Like Exo, I'd 'heard that the seedlings were of highland origin (but had not heard the Pasian part). I followed the links from the 1st thread 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).
    All the best,
    Ron
