    Chicago has notoriously poor weather - but regardless of that, I think the main difference here is experience. You really know your stuff (as evidenced when you were talking at the NECPS show), but the OP was contemplating dunking the plant in ice water and using magnets.

    I don't want to start any arguments here and I apologize to everyone for losing my temper earlier. I'll gladly eat my hat if this ends up working.

    skoogenheimer - definitely wait a lot longer than a few days to make any judgments on whether the plant enjoys its current situation. After about a month or two you you can start to see what factors the plant enjoys or doesn't.

    Congrats on getting an edwardsiana though, really. I am interested to see how the indoor windowsill experiment works out. I honestly think the plant will probably survive where it is, but hardly grow or not thrive. If you were to add just one clamp lamp with a CF light bulb and make sure you mist it twice a day and I bet it would grow like a champ.

    If it starts to go downhill, I say put it in a small terrarium and get a clamp lamp on it pronto.

    Good luck! Depending on how humid your windowsill is and how hot it gets I would use a transparent ziploc baggie over the pot for humidity. During winter in the US I'd say most windowsills are pretty good temp wise for growing highlanders. I hope the plant does well for you

    With a plant that small in that huge of a pot, I cannot imagine it not getting root rot at some point.

    Been a while since I've been on.

    This is a bit of a heated thread.

    I think I was one of a very few people that had tried a N. hamata as a windowsill plant years ago. To be exact, it has been growing as a windowsill plant since 7/15/2004.
    The N. hamata was a plant I always wanted. I did not have the "proper" setup required to have the plant thrive, so I was told.



    skoogenheimer good luck with your plant.
