Just wanted to let you all know that my U. subulata is flowering nicely in my P. ionantha pot. *It's the first time this species has flowered for me indoors. *They regularly flower for me in early summer in my outdoor gardens, but not indoors, until now. * [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
What triggered this phenomenon? *
Could it be light? I did add another light strip and changed 2 of the 40w bulbs to *Ultra Daylight by GE. *Total INITIAL lumens are rated at 9875 for my setup.
Terrarium move? I followed Tamlin's example and moved my 55 gallon aquarium so the top is now the side and the bulbs are resting on the 'side' glass. *The lights are therefore closer to the plants.
Humidity? Since the terrarium move, the humidity levels have dropped from the 90% range to 50-70% on average.
Aside from these changes, I don't know what else could have triggered them flowering. *It's a mystery for most, if not all growers it seems. *The photoperiod I might add is 12.5 hours a day... nothing special. *Well, I just wanted to share this accomplishment.
