let there be light
I spent much of yesterday morning re-arranging the plants in the "cage". I shifted all the bromeliads to the neighbouring yard as they appeared to be starved of light. Bromeliads tend to lose their colour and turn greenish when light levels are low. Although they did get some sunshine where they were placed originally, I gather that it was probably insufficient due to the shade cloth and the numerous pots of nepenthes hanging overhead. As they are now directly under the open sky, the colours should (*hopefully*) show up pretty quickly, especially the spiny leaved neoregelias.
