    4-Tier Grow Rack Setup

    Just finished moving my grow rack inside.





    Daytime Temps - 80-88
    Daytime RH - 65-85

    Nighttime temps - 73-82
    Nighttime RH - 75-95

    Working on try to lower the nighttime temperatures a bit if possible. Hoping this will help when it arrives http://sunpentown.com/suulhu.html

    List of plants:

    N. bicalcarata red (Lowland)
    N. Veithchi pink (Lowland)
    N. ventricosa (I believe - no label- store bought from Lowes) (Intermediate)
    N. sanguinea (I believe - again store bought from Lowes) (Intermediate?)
    N. orange sanguinea (Intermediate?)
    N. burkei (Highland)
    N. talangensis x veitchii (Highland)
    N. sibuyanensis x hamata (Highland)

    Careful about the N. bicalcarata in there. They prefer high humidity and high temperatures.

    if you want to grow N. Bicalc for more than just a year you may want a couple months with less lowlanderish temps haha its the only way to keep it growing within a manageable rate...

    otherwise within a year it'll overtake your whole house.

    N. bical can definitely be grown successfully in there. Here's mine today before I packed it up for shipping.

    really nice vraev. Yeah, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure my temperatures are good for bical. growing. I'm more worried about stunting the growth of my highlanders. I'm trying to figure out if I should split the 4 tiers into a highland/lowland 2-chamber setup....

    That give me an idea.



    Maybe one day I can devote one tier to Neps, instead of sharing with the Petios and Utrics.
