Time to go... BIGGER
my nepenthenes are getting huge. my alata is over 3 feet tall now. the terrarium just is not working anymore.
so, i'm converting the small workshop room in my house into a greenhouse-type environment. plastic sheeting over the walls and ceileng, humidifier, etc.
i'm just not sure what kind of lighting to use. the room is 6x9', and the ceiling is about 9 feet up. should i use metal halide? and if so, what size wattage would i need to get the whole room?
if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.
Stay chooned in for more!
Absolutely use metal halide if unless you want constraints of fluorescent fixtures.
As far as wattage, I dunno! I think i'd go with two 500's.
