culture source - mexican ninja and part time male super model. currently playing role as evil guy in soap opera.
substrate - ground brown rice, rye grass seed and vermiculite.
i have also had success with straw/sand/vermiculite. the data is recorded in a parallel universe so i will get back to that later.
casing - not sure. likely cactus soil, peat, vermiculite and calcium. had some left overs.
RH - not measured.
FAE - not measured.
temps - much of the trial period with these was during summer with some extreme heat spikes that barrerae did not respond well to. it seems to prefer cooler temperatures around 70-78 degrees F.
lighting - 6500k daylight cfl and ambient light. some fruits are a little twisted as they were moved around a lot.
barrerae is one of the most phototropic species i have encountered. with the exception of cubensis.
no special order for the pics. these are just some of my favorites.
as always, much love!
