But yours looks great hun. The atten is doing great but it may be getting shrinky leave to... Any advice on keeping fluid in the seedling pitchers cause i wanna try and feed them but without fluid they turn blackish.
    Highland plants definitely thrive under bright light; but yours may be getting a bit overheated. Ensure that they get cold nights and satisfy yourself by fertilizing the compost and forget feeding the tiny pitchers. I never feed them or add fertilizer -- save for what they catch on their own. It's far too easy to upset the chemistry within the pitchers and cause them to rot . . .

    They get a good drop at night but day temps are deff becoming an issue without cold water bottles added below the tank. Its day temps are in the 80's night temps low 60s-50's. Humidity is pretty good but my i can't tell what it is since my regulator isnt working to good so im ordering a new one and a new cooling fan. Do u think i should switch to my 60watt day light bulb instead cause lower light makes bigger leaves but its weird cause many of my other HLs are doing fine when the others are finicy and vice versa. I'll post a photo

    Thanks for the kind words . . .

    Yes, the plants are really enjoying the carefree Northern Californian lifestyle, and gorging themselves on only the finest, cage-free, free-range fungus gnats, heh, heh, heh . . .

    There's no control in this setting, so there's zero scientific evidence of it not being a myth. One could just as easily equate it to the orchid fertilizer (much more scientifically likely), or the OP's favorable growing conditions/media.

    Not to take away from the awesome plant, as it certainly is awesome, but we have to remember that correlation does not equal causation.
