Dear Tindomal Er-Murzor:
do use artificial lighting during the winter days, especially if it is overcast
outside, not necessarily for the health of the plants since they seem to
survive ok in winter months but as much as anything just to lighten up the
place to make it less dreary to work. Our lights are just standard fluorescent
bulbs so far as I know. I have never tried raising jack in the pulpits indoors
but I guess if you have a cool greenhouse I don’t know why you could not.

I am a lab tech at Queens
College, and one of the
labs I look after is the Botany lab. In this lab, I grow Anthurium
gracile which is a constant bloomer with lots of red seed production. A
nice show. I have also started getting some blooms of A.
scandens.<--Spelling. This species is supposed to be a nice bloomer
too with nicer fruit.
I also have a species formerly known as Typhonium varians, which I have heard
has a new name. I got it from T&C Terrariums online.
I do have one question for you. Do you supply any arteficial lighting,
and if so, where does your college get them from. I am trying to retrofit the
lab here with some nicer lights than your average T8's.
Also, I am experimenting with growing some jack in the pulpits indoors.
So far I have succeeded with attaining a second year growth. However,
both the Typonium and this one would be Spring bloomers.
