    Lightbulb

    Well I bought a small greenhouse thingy today,and I was gonna tell you guys how easy it was to assemble until I sliced my finger open with the screwdriver TWICE!Same darn finger too!So I had to stop putting it together and go to the hospital to get 8 stitches.5 in the first cut,then 3 in the other,lol.It really sucked.I had to wait 4 hours to get 8 darn stitches [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] So my dad finished putting together my cool greenhouse [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] It's exactly the same as CNCreefer's(He posted pics of his in the terrarium,bog,greenhouse thread)But now I gotta go buy some plants cause I don't have anything to put in it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] So now I can buy a Nepenthes and put it in there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] BTW it's gonna be kept outside.*Niki* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Oh one question,do CP's need SUNlight all the time cause right now it's really cloudy and raining so how can they get the light they need?

    Niki, what are you doing to yourself!? This certainlyhasn't been a happy week for you. I hope that the new friends you have made (probably about 50 of them) will cheer you up. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Heat will be an issue in the winter for you Nikki. I assume you guys are still getting cold nights up in BC, so probably would be best to wait a few weeks until the temps get warmer.

    Hi Nikki
    Wow that is some bad luck.Have you thought about shade for the g/house as behind glass it gets mighty fierce in the summer.As Dustin said heating in winter to is needed,i dont know what your summer and winter high,s and lows are as im across the pond from you.
    Let us know how it goes and what plants your going to choose,picking the plants for a new g/house is always the best bit [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Niki...always bear in mind that these plants grow outdoors in all kinds of conditions. So as far as cloudy weather and rain, those are natural events they experience out in the wild. But of course you do have to consider things like...if your area typically doesn't get a lot of sun and you want to grow a sun-loving plant, then you will need to supplement.

    One of the best things you can do to determine a plants needs, is to do an internet search for the location a plant grows in natively. Then look up the climate. That will tell you how much rain they get or how much sun or what temperatures they experience. That can help a lot.

    **Research** is a great tool for growing CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    And sorry about the finger...that sucks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Careful girl, you only get one finger [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    I need to get one of those for some plants that like a little more humidity.

    Take care

    Oh I'm just really clumsy,I'll survive,but that's for the love:: Chesara:It's not a glass greenhouse,it's basically a four level metal shelf with a plastic cover over it that has a big zipper opening in the front for the door.Thanks JimScott,I always get cheered up when I come here Darn I never thought about the heat issue in the winter So could I get a lamp and hook it up inside the greenhouse to keep some warmth in there?When I first started I got a really hot lamp and light bulb fit for a lizard,until you nice folks told me that I need fluorescent lights,so what if I used that hot bulb again for in the winter time?Nepenthes gracilis:It doesn't get cold here at night anymore.I can go outside in a t-shirt at 12am(cause my puppy needs to go out)and i'm not freezing or anything PlantAKiss:You're right,these plants do grow in the wild so the clouds and rain should be ok(even tho they'r covered)so they won't always get sunlight in the wild either,but you had a great idea about looking up on the internet what types of CP's grow where and such,so I will do that right after this post jhaluska:You're definetly right!That screwdriver was way too sharp!superimposedhope:I have ten fingers,I don't know about you:: Just kidding I'll keep you guys posted in which plants I get,but if any of you have any suggestions on which plants like the humidity and such please let me know.I'm in zone 8[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Bye for now.*Niki*

    Oops,I meant THANKS for the love,not THATS for the love,LOL.*Niki*
