    I know it's not as exciting as say... U. asplundii but I hope it holds you over till Pyro gets his up... I am not too sure I have seed this flower design before.

    Adnedarn,

    What kind of light are you using to grow sandersonii? I only get those colors when using naturla sunlight. Under artificila light flowers are almost white and smaller.

    living in Tucson Az the sun is far too bright and hot for these jewls. i use a mixture of cool white, warm white and chroma 50 4 ft 40 watt tubes. thanks for the compliment. 4 tubes over each set of plants. and within inches of the plants.

    Txs for the info Adnedarn. I was using only 6500K CF bulbs. I think light quantity is good but spectrum is not.
    Will try adding some warmer light.
