the long road back to 14 hours


Ok so here i go. The winter long night has passed, and since we didnt go the way of the dodo. I'm beginning to lengthen the photoperiod on my terrariums once again , I add 30 min to the timers about every 10 days till I get to 14 hours a day.

I've done this this way for several years now and seem to have good luck with my terrarium grown plants.

The ceph.s all slowed to a complete stop this year as I got all the way down to 9 1/2 hours a day near the beginning of december, and they were not even making noncarnivorous leaves. I've added an hour back now and it looks like the ceph s are responding. I'll be adding another 30 min tonight

This one in particular was looking kinda bad, as the adult pitchers are all but gone, but I can see a new growth point and new activity at the other two growth points in this pot .:0o:
Good, looks like you have a baby pitcher there!
