That looks really nice actually for indoor vfts, even though they're outdoor plants! You have some pretty plants there

Beautiful!

This year was the first I tried to winter my plants indoors with fluorescent lighting. In the past I’ve lost plants because my dormancy space has no light. This year they did WORSE!

How do you grow yours indoors successfully?

I’m giving extremely bright lights! And lots of airflow, temps range from 80-86 and night temps drop to 68-70 if that helps. And lots of water! I use the tray method and it’s working well for me, I also feed them maybe once a week, I only feed the older traps though, I like how the spring/summer traps look lol

Lovely looking plants. I know as people point out that they are better off outside but there is something awesome about indoor growing you get to have control over the environment that when you get just right is so satisfying and more involving than outdoor growing. Well to me anyway lol. After all every plant on earth is an outdoor plant really in it's native habitat.

Yeah I really enjoyed my plants indoors. They are outdoors now and doing good but it’s disappointing how colorless they look outdoors because of the heat. Indoors they where the most colorful traps I have ever seen and I really got to enjoy some cultivars color up like I’ve never seen them do in the past.
