My only naga currently is barely two leaves up after a year, and not looking good, so i got some new seeds. Looks like very early on they get some color to them though!

Great setup. The window ac unit solves my cooling problem. Thanks for the photos.

Havent posted in a while.

I am living in a new apartment with little room for plants so I relocated my plants to a bigger indoor greenhouse I built in my families basement a few hours south of where I live. This allows me more time to focus on work and music.

The entire setup is automated now and I have only been able to check on the plants a couple times each month. Plants are looking good though when I checked on them last night. Snapped a quick picture with my cellphone of a burb pitcher that popped up since last time I visited. I will shoot some good pics in fall outdoors.

The setup has two sections, one warmer area with HPS lights and a misting system and another section with Warm/Cool Fluorescence lights with a misting system. The entire setup is Air Conditioned and I am seeing really good results.

Some things I noticed:
- izumiae x trusmadiensis in flower to early to tell, looked male
- argentii finally pitchering again
- upper pitchers on my seed grown jamban are all green with red lips (kinda cool) My BE clone stays all red.
- aristolochioides is getting a nice vine
- Seedings are growing faster under the fluorescent lights over HPS (murudensis, villosa, lavicola, lingulata, jamban, attentboutghii) which is surprising
- glandulifera is in the warmer section and growing faster then when it was in the cooler area.
- trusmadiensis is hating the warm section, but that is the only plant that is pissed right now

Nice photo! Would love to see photo of your setup if you have time when you're there next.

Do you have a family member checking on your plants to ensure the watering/misting/lights are still operating correctly?

Checked on my plants this weekend. They are looking good for no humain interaction for another 2 weeks.

Here are some photos I took with an ipad so excuse the quality.
