AWESOME! I was waiting for some updated photos Jun. These are amazing! That growth on the Ceph is quite astounding. A couple of questions:
1) What was your hormone experiment on the N. Singapore giant?
2) Are you planning on TCing that flower stalk from the Shark's Tooth VFT? If so, that's about the perfect time to cut it in my experience. Cut it off and use the top part but cut off the very end part of the buds (they usually get contaminated). You should get a strike pretty quickly with that.

Hi Matt,

I used the 24-Epi that can be purchased from Phytotech, they are pretty expensive but worth it. I guess you only need 1 gram to mix to 20 gallons of water. Foliar sparying.

I already did the flower stalk last night. I didn't remove the tip of the flower stalk. We'll see if it get's contaminated. They are in a terrarium anyways so it's pretty clean.

Oh yeah, I forgot you were growing them in the terrarium. That should help keep them from getting contaminated. And even with mine, they don't always get contaminated, but the do quite frequently. Also, the buds seem to produce weird stuff in vitro. The best part of the plant is the part above the main stalk and below the buds.
