    I got an old cool air humidifier at Goodwill for &#365, the only problem is that it spits little tiny drops of water, so to increase the cooling effect I was going to run the outgoing air through a short pipe full of exelsor (long thin tangled wood fibers) , in hopes that the cooling effect of the evaporation will overcome the heating effect of the motor while keeping the humidity up (read swamp cooler). I haven't tried it yet but I am hopefull, and the whole thing should cost me less than &#3620 so if it does not work it is not too big a deal.

    i think if you touch dry ice with your hands you will get burned. so i you buy it make like a wire rack and put it ontop of it and have it hang into ur terrarium. you can get it at a gas station place. im not sure if trhey still sell it. it lasts for about a week or 2 in a cooler. maybe a week in ur terrarium. im not sure how much it usualy costs ill go look on google

    found some stuff.
    http://www.dryiceinfo.com

    and it is about this cold. -109.3F or -78.5C
    maybe a bit TOO cold [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    its about a doller per pound.
    on that web site click where to buy dry ice and type in your area code number, the kind for telefone. like mine is 954 for florida. just type in urs.

    goto www.google.com and type in dry ice and find soem more stuff if ur interested

    and it dosnt melt. it Sublimates. that means it goes from a solid to a gas. i dotn think dry ice will work. it is too cold and the fumes may kill it

    Hmmm... it's been a long time.. but I thought dry ice was CO2? perhaps its gasses would be beneficial...

    but yeah, I think that is going to an extremem guys.

    Well it is CO2. But it is extremly cold! I thik I'll skip that I don't want it freezing in there! But, how do other N.Rajah growers cool it down? In a terrarium?

    The only person I know who has successfully cooled his plants down in a high'tech fashion, uses one of those coleman protable coolers with a glass top instead of the normal one. He has the power running through a thermostat, with the thermometer in there with the plants... when they get warm, it kicks on...
