    Lightbulb Current tepui weather conditions

    Might be of interest to our tepui flora growers....

    Angasima Tepui
    Chimata Tepui



    Current tepui weather conditions
    Venezuela Climate graph contributed by climatemps.com

    (While not tepui specific, a lot can be inferred from the chart. Especially when combined with Huber and Garcia's observations)

    Interesting that while the humidity and temps remain rather constant seasonally, a dry season does occur early in the year.

    That's why my heli's don't do so well, I don't have enough instability! (I'm kidding of course, I know what it means).

    The weather conditions are shockingly stable, but I see a key missing ingredient most heli growers lack.

    Butch, do you have controlled electrical storms in your terrarium? Like a tesla coil or something?

    I like how they describe it "slightly unstable" yet in all the field reports, trip descriptions, and people's stories they describe the top of the Tepuis as pretty much the most temperamental, inhospitable environment they could ever imagine

    Thx for posting
