As you can see I added a couple of fans to increase circulation and to blow the hot air out. There is also a fan that blows into the closet. Right now there is one tray of select seedlings that are 1.5 years old. The rest are 6 months old or younger:
Here are some of the 1.5 yr old seedlings:
'Orange Glow' x 'Adrian Slack' clone 1:
'Orange Glow' x 'Adrian Slack' clone 2:
'Orange Glow' x 'Adrian Slack' clone 3 (This is one of my favorite seedlings at the moment. It's hard to catch its true color and beauty with my iPhone) :
'Adrian Slack' x 'Adrian Slack' clone 1 & 2:
'Adrian Slack' x 'Adrian Slack' clone 3:
HCW x ('Leah Wilkerson' x Oreo #1):
...and now some of the little guys that are starting to have a growth spurt and show off some niiice characteristics. All of the following are Phil Faulisi crosses and are 6 months old and younger:
There are some more amazing seedlings growing up in my closet but I'll save them for another date.
Calen: I've heard that can be a problem with seedlings, but haven't ever been able to repeat it (ie. no idea how to prevent it). I tried taking a pot out from under lights mid february of last year and the plants slowed down drastically, but once it warmed up a few months later, they grew like normal. They should have gone dormant until the next winter. What were the exact conditions that led to your seedlings going dormant now, and when were they taken outdoors?
Naturenuts: wow, looks like you're growin em for Jesus, they look perfect!

I will be putting the larger ones out in the late fall so hopefully I won't have any problems. If the pitchers get too tall this year I'll just chop of the tops. Of course I'll still be Maxroiding the heck out of the headless pitchers
sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
