    I went and got a thermometer/hygrometer today so I could more closely monitor my growing conditions. I have some plants showing signs of water stress with their contorted leaves, albeit I did just repot several so this could be due in part to transplant shock as well. Either way, I found that my room was 81 degrees under the light and 34% humidity. The cold weather here has the humidity really low. So I got a fan going now and put a tray of perlite under some of my Nepenthes under the 4 ft light. Things are pretty good for now. With the addition of the fan and perlite tray I was able to get a bit better conditions, lowering temp by 5 degrees and increasing humidity between 13 and 14%. Hopefully these will remain consistent for now. I have a light meter and light stands coming that will allow me to get all my plants individually elevated to optimum lumens. My next thing on my agenda is to start doing a bit of research into exactly what kind of conditions are best for my species and begin to cater to their individual needs as best I can without going too far overboard using domes and such.

    New Thermometer/Hygrometer


    Water and Perlite tray for extra humidity.

    Got any pics? Or was the first image yours. I was under the impression it was the photo from the seller.

    Yeah that's the seller's photo. I have some pics. It's a bit stressed out right now unfortunately. Lost one of the original pitchers after shipping.My CP Windowsill Exploits.-20141113_142522-jpgMy CP Windowsill Exploits.-20141111_210106-jpgMy CP Windowsill Exploits.-20141111_210127-jpgMy CP Windowsill Exploits.-20141111_210037-jpg
