I'm planning to grow a Heliamphora inside, on a windowsill, with a container over the top of it for humidity. Now, of course the main problem with this, is the temperatures, because it will warm up in an enclosed space, so i've come up with a few ways of stopping it warming up to much. I thought I'd post them here, so you could comment and give feedback on them...
1. Ventilation: cooling the 'mini greenhouse' by having holes ('vents') in the greenhouse to allow hot air out, and cool air in.
2. Shading: Diffuse the light, or block some of it out, to block out some of the heat.
3. Circulation: Place a small fan in the container to circulate the air and keep it cool.
4. Evaporative Cooling: Position a small fan so it blows over the surface of a pot of water (or the damp soil) and so as it evaporates the water, thus cooling the air down.
5. Reflecting: Reflect the excess light which is what creates 78% of the heat, out of the greenhouse.
6. Cooling: Wrap a bottle of frozen water in tin-foil, and place it in the container to allow it to slowsly cool down the air.
So, those are my options. Quite a lot of them. (Whoever said you can't grow Heliamphora on a windowsill!!) What do you think?
