    Suzanne, thanks. That amp pitcher it my biggest yet, at 2.5 or 3" to the top of the lid (I gotta measure that bad boy).
    Rattler, I've had that amp for two years now. It did NOTHING for the longest time after I got it. Must have taken it at least 9 months to settle in...One of the reasons being I was a newbie, and gave it direct sun (not all day, but STILL), and kinda crisped it a little. Anyway, I found that when it finally settled in, it started to grow at a decent rate. Not a speed demon, but not bad.

    E.C., Thanks! Ile de France is actually a hybrid, not a species. I got it from Snowy Falcon, and semi-ex board member (left for greener....er...different pastures...He'll be back, it's in his blood). You can find them for sale, but you'll have to do a google search.

    Rattler, that gracilis really does grow fast, eh? I just gave mine a "hair cut." The two bigger vines came right off....six cuttings later, there is only one, smaller vine left, with some basal sprouts. Should be huge again in, what, five hours or so? LOL.

    VTPTFATHAVFT,
    With regards to sun, the amp currently gets about 2 hours of early morning sun, then indirect light (window) supplemented a hair by being 1' from two 4' fluor. tubes. Durring the winter, it get 6 4' tubes of fluor light at about 6 or 7". The bical is currently in the winter set up (yes, I know it's summer...just no room in the summer set up with that big 'ol amp in there, lol). As for the rest of my neps, they get varying amounts of sun, from 5 or 6 hours of direct sun all the way down to flourescent tubes only. I try to give my highlanders more sun, and the lowlanders less, but that's just a general rule. I ALWAYS research a species' light requirements before I place it somewhere.
