    i wish i could have a greenhouse but i dont see how i realistically could during the winters up here, cooling in the summer could be quite entertaining too. our weather is unreal. growlights are basically my only option since i dont have any south or west facing windows that i can use for plants.

    Speaking for myself, I dislike any etiolation in my Drosera. Even under 8 40 watt tubes lighting a 4' x 4' area I get atypical growth: petioles elongate. The plants are beautiful, but don't reflect their appearance in habitat. They appear larger, looser, and less well colored. Even growing them outdoors in my area of 49% available sun doesn't cut it. The best results I can come up with has the plant rosettes nearly in contact with the tubes: but then I can't appreciate what I have. It's really a matter of personal aesthetics I suppose. If your results please you, that is all that really matters.

    as soon as my plants look to me like they need different conditions i move them. i learned this with orchids. i have one thats growing like a weed right now in a window that i wouldnt think would grow much of anything but you would swear i was pumping miricle grow to it instead of intentially abusing it to prove to ppl that orchids arent that difficult. btw its in spike now for the third time this year. it makes me shake my head when ever i walk by it.

    It does not seem that the flowers last long. After about a week it looked as if it was shrivelling. I was going to look at it tonight, but I notice the stalk and all was gone!
    It seems one of the cats decided to eat it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I grow my tridenta right next to my sandersonnii. I so flood them ever so often. My mix is peat, sand and perlite. It is doing very well and has flowered.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
