    Dave: Your N. hamata and sun pitcher look amazing. Would you mind posting more pictures of your entire tank? I've lately been redoing most of my collection/conditions so I'd love to see your setup!

    Zac, Dave:

    Beautiful plants!

    Dave, how many times will you torture me with that N.hamata! I drool over it at our NECPS meetings, and now you tease me with pics on the forum. Very nice plant.

    Thanks, Ken. Im still amazed that I lucked out and won the that N. hamata in an NECPS raffle last year.

    Zak, my humidity readings are around 85%, but I suspect it gets higher than that.

    Mitch, I designed the tank more for function than looks, but here is the whole tank:



    Another grow area that is like a home-made terrarium made with a rack and greenhouse plastic:

    Dave, thanks for posting pictures of your setup. Even though you designed it all for function rather than looks, I think it's very nice!

    Quick question: What's your watering technique for your Neps? Do you have them sitting in saucers or do you just let the water freely drain away?

    I have two N. hamatas that aren't doing so well right now and any and all help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I let the water drain away. I have grown a few neps in water before, but I now prefer a mix of LFS and orchid bark. I seem to have better luck with a well-drained potting mix, that stays damp, but not overly wet.

    When I grows neps outside, I will let them sit in a dish of water.

    I am a big fan of live LFS for my N. hamata based on my experience and what I have read.

    Thanks for the info Dave. My Neps don't seem to mind sitting in water for the most part, but trying the free-draining method might be a good idea. All I know is that your Neps look good and mine do not! Haha!
