    Hmm his raff looks like mine, which is just a regular I think... I'll post a pic of it when it opens... Tho my surefire tip to knowing if it's a giant is let it grow for a little longer and when the pitcher breaks the 10 inch mark. BANG! there you go you got it identified.

    Hi there,

    THX for your answers!

    The size of the terrarium is: 120cm*60cm*60cm.

    Yes, it grows up to a heigth of about 10cm. I don't know where you can get seeds, I got 2 plants from U. Westphal over here in Germany. But the correct name is Biophytum sensitivum, perhaps you'll have luck with google.

    The kelvin of the ATI T5 inflorescent tubes 'sun' is 6000. I don't know what d you mean with VHO tubes. Never heard of it.

    The temperature is about 32C at day and 23-25C at night. Humidity is constant at 70% at day and 80-95% at night.

    Thanks again for your answers.
    Cheers,
    Max

    Looks like a very nice colored normal N. raff. to me. The BE99 clone is a giant type and nearly bright solid red with a green peristome. Should be some pics on BE's website.

    VHO aquarium tubes should work well. Max the VHO stands for very high output. They run at nearly 3x the normal wattage so a 4' normal tube is 40watts while a 4' vho tube is 110watts. Lumen output is equally increased. Unfortunately you need a special ballast which are kind of pricey and the bulbs are also not cheap compared to regular fixtures/bulbs. On the plus side you make up for it somewhat by needing less tubes. And you can also get much brighter light on the plants from a further distance for tall applications.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Mimosa grows wild in one of the fields we own in the Dominican Republic. They are EVERYWHERE, the thorns hurt like he!! The common name is "morir vivir" which plainly means live, die.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
