    Nice update! I bet it's pretty hot up where you live today... had to activate the doghouse AC unit an hour earlier for the Neps :|. 50 degree night temps? Nice! What are your day temps now with that cooler in there? I'd say the coffee treatment has taken its effect on the rapid fire sphag and the huge Nepenthes leaves from the last update .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Well it was in the 90s today and it stays just two or three degrees cooler in the greenhouse, and that's in 100% sun under the 50% shade cloth. It's in full sun for a few hours each day. I think its around 90F in there. Yesterday I went in and it was 94F, so I threw all of the Nepenthes in a container and carried them inside for a few hours, then put them back out for their night in the 50s with high humidity. Brought them back inside this morning and they're sitting in my floor right next to me lol. By the end of the week I should be able to put them back out for the rest of the summer (hopefully).

    When the temperatures are in the 70s and 80s, the day temperatures are around 80-85F when the greenhouse is in full sun. Then it cools off to around 70 until it gets dark, where it drops into the 50s with humidity around 80-90%.

    If you look at my first Nepenthes update video, you can see like dead sphagnum with a few compact heads. Then look at the video three months later and you can see the same pots covered in thick heads all over. Pretty amazing. I'd say coffee is definitely a factor!

    The sphagnum pile in that pot is probably 4" high now. It started at pot level.

    That wasn't me. Believe it or not, it was a $130 light saber from Amazon. You just couldn't see it light up in the bright sun. Works better in the dark lol.

    It's yours for any Nepenthes of yours that I don't have.
