    Uphwiz, you always manage to cook/bring out the best colours in your pitchers, what's the secret lighting arrangement? If you don't mind sharing...

    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Thanks for the info Myles & Jimmy, not sure if this is possible, but has anyone attempted placing a lamp directly onto the pitcher at close range( 1-2ft away) with say 2000-3000kelvin. I'm positive the leaves would burn at that distance, but what if the light was directed strictly onto the pitcher, has anyone literally cooked a pitcher to the point of it being black and crisp? I think Jimmy you've probably come as close as anyone with that Lowii x Camp. I only use ambient light, hence why I ask.

    It's in reference to this thread http://pitcherplants.proboards.com/t...scrollTo=91395
