    Looking good dude! Can't wait to see more pitchers. Is everything back in the greenhouse? Did you get a swamp cooler?

    Everything is back in the greenhouse. No swamp cooler yet, but it has been ordered and should be set up within two weeks. Day temps are like 80-85 and night temps are around 50, with humidity 90% at night and like 40% during the day. Not perfect, but not unbearable.

    I have minimal experience with HL neps, but that seems pretty solid, except for the day humidity. What are you going to do in the winter, what's your climate zone?

    Cool arrivals!! Day humidity has never been a problem with me. If the Neps leaves appear hardy and waxy then they are adapt and will be fine with it.


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

    They haven't been outside during winter yet. I moved them out there in like April... In winter it gets down to about 30-40F at night, but I have a heater which keeps the GH at 50F on the absolute lowest setting. The day humidity will be fixed when I get the swamp cooler working.

    Thanks! To be honest, I HATE ventricosa... Except for the ones with nice, juicy peristomes and speckles like this one hehe. I went full noob buying this guy.

    I moved them from the terrariums out to the greenhouse last week and the new leaves were all super flimsy, soft and unwaxy. Over the week, the hardened up and became more waxy. Hopefully I can get the swamp cooler set up quickly, but it will probably take a full day of work next Saturday to get it all done.

    Are you going to do the gravity-powered drip system or the one from the spicket?
