    WOW! Beautiful neps!

    May I ask how you keep the temperature and humidity in the desired range of those more difficult species? You live in Ontario... Isn't it cold and snowy there? Do you rely solely on diffused sunlight and misting?

    Thanks pineapple. I don't really do anything to moderate temperature ranges, usually the temps in bedroom are "naturally" in the HL range, and I get good cool downs at night, especially in the winter.

    In the summer they get about 5 hours of direct light in the morning and 11 of bright indirect light. In the winter photoperiod goes down quite a bit, this year I added some lights to a shelf to put some of the other neps for additional light.

    Humidity is usually good, its higher in the summer, I mist them about twice a day! I keep the smaller neps in the terrarium where humidity and lighting are ofcourse more constant.

    Thanks TJ & Thez!

    Wow, so simple but effective! Do you know what percentage the humidity is usually at? I heard Hamatas like high humidity. Is it really hardy for you?

    Humidity sits at around 50% in the winter, and 70-80% in the summer. N. hamata has been a trouble maker for me really, I just lost mine, but it's because it got attacked by spider mites, and I think I think it didn't like the media I used for it, It does like its humdity for sure, thats why i was growing in the terrarium where humidity is constantly around 80%.

    Why thank you Steven!

    Quick Update, my N. veitchii (k) opened a new pitcher, and N. ventricosa x hamata is looking nice again!







    N. inermis is looking like it might do something interesting.
