    Hello

    I lost a few Nepenthes due to a freeze in my greenhouse, surprisingly it only killed 3 plants...
    N. ampullaria 'spotted'
    N. insignis
    N. eustachya red/purple

    If you have any of these plants please let me know.

    thanks

    Yeah, what happened was my greenhouse runs off the boiler in our house but some how the boiler temperature got turn down so it was not producing near the amount of heat it should. I have it fixed not but I decide that my lowland Nepenthes were not thriving since it would get to 50F ever night I build a indoor lowland grow chamber with PVC and thick plastic, they will be much happier in there.

    thanks

    Do what I did, get one of those remote temp sensors. Not cheap, but when you've got good money invested in plants, a hundred bucks for one is certainly a valuable asset!
