I only have the chance to pot up these guys the middle of last week.

Under 7W LED - photo taken this Monday :drunk:/>

I remember that they weren't so red when they arrived so for comparison, I took a photo of another member's plant (still bagged up but placed near T5).

All these are only the main shoots and they will be given away in about a month's time...The offshoots of this form and all the other forms were given away to another member here as I really don't have space anymore. He received between 50-100? :lol:/>

No brand. From Taobao. The lamp is actually for succulents but there's pretty good result shown on the VFTs so I bought.

Wow! They really do thrive!
Pity I no longer have access to my university's research paper bank, would have loved to read some literature on these.

Also noticed the petioles on my large (reaching 3.8 cm on the trap) VFT getting fat, but probably due to the previous rainy weather.

Yes, consistent high temperatures tend to encourage the plants to multiply themselves via offshoots. So I am seeing if the LED lights give better growth as T5s tend to be quite hot.
