    The N. eymae looks like the dark form maxima we have at Meadowview, which is still a really nice plant!

    I got it from a supplier in the Northeast. They've sent me the wrong plants before so i don't know for sure if that is what it is. Thats the tag that was in it though.

    Fantastic! Your grow rack looks to be the same brand/make as mine. What size/type lighting do you use (and how many)? And when you water, do you hand water them 1 by 1?
    Thanks again for the wonderful pictures!

    I have a 2-tube, 2ft T5 HO light on the top shelf and some cheapo growlight T10 (not HO) that was given to me just to give a little extra light to the lower shelves. I am getting a 4 tube, 4 ft T5 HO to hang vertically down the back in a week or two though and I have a couple mylar blankets i'm going to cover the sides with. The bottom shelf is replaced with a wooden frame I made and covered with pond liner which I fill with hot water almost everyday to raise the humidity. I just put a thermometer in and on average I think my temps are ranging between 82-78 during the day and 67-72 at night. I don't know what the humidity level is but the Nepenthes seem to like it

    So are the nepenthes on the second shelf only getting the diffused lighting from above? Also, I myself used some foam board as a backing for mylar security blanket. It makes a solid material that yo ucan easily hang on the sides, I can't recommend it highly enough!

    It's that huge maxima if that's where it came from. Personally, I think it's more impressive than N. eymae.

    yea the nepenthes are only getting diffused light from above. They seem to be doing fine with that.
