    Of course! Although I must warn that what I have setup currently isn't the greatest and does have flaws. I'm currently trying to make a better version, this one is just a temp one so the plants I do have don't die

    Here's a picture of it


    What I did was take a fish tank and surrounded it on all sides (including the bottom) with the foam board that has the metallic reflectant skin. I bought a board of this foam at Lowes since homedepot didn't have.

    I have two peltier (sp?) cooling systems on the top of the tank. Currently these only drop my tank down 8 degrees from the outside temps. So I need to add another one since I can only manage 68 degrees as the lowest temp at night so far.

    Inside the tank I filled the bottom with water to add humidity and to try and maintain temps which helped by about two degrees. Above that is just pieces of plastic for the plants to sit on so they're not in water.

    Lighting, is just three daylight bulbs. I use those as suplamental light since the tank is outside and gets indirect light all day.

    It's a pretty basic setup and seems to work so far. Let me know if you have any questions

    Talk about a huge jump in pitcher size! The big one is the one made right after the small one.

    Updates from the shade house:

    This nepenthes is pretty small, the pitcher is only about an inch in size, but I can already see some greatness in its future!

    And last but not least, this Thursday was my birthday so I thought it was a good excuse to buy myself something for my highland tank Surprisingly the plants actually came early, right on my b-day!

    Love the fusca. I need to pick up one of the Mamut form while they're still around in abundance.
