    Sadly I found this out about net pots last year. I ordered some very nice lowlands and I got sick and when I was well enough to be up again they were dead and brown. No more net pots. They came in net pots but those are good for water plants only as far as I'm concerned. So disapointing.

    Hehe, thanks for the advice. All those you recommended are either rare and/or expensive. I've heard Jamban does well as a house plant. Do you have any experience with Tentaculata? I really like that plant. I got my first hamata the about three weeks ago. It's doing well just opening the first pitcher under my care and opening a new leaf. I love the look of glabrata, but after reading the thread with everyone's problems I'm having second toughts on that one.

    I realized they were all rare and expensive after I got done listing them.

    I've not had any experience with N. tentaculata but from what I know it is much like hamata in growth requirements, size and such. Definitely a handsome looking species and I'm sure it is much cheaper than hamata.

    When I was growing N. glabrata I didn't find it all that hard. It growed rather steadily for me and pitchered most of the time. The only reason I don't have them anymore is because I had a bad mite infestation and they got eaten alive.

    I would definitely give glabrata a go. Just keep the humidity up and the nights low, it's a lovely species.

    I know lowii is afordable. Finding it though is another matter. I'd love to have one. Perhaps my favorite highland. I'll keep that in mind about glabrata. It's tempting. Love the red on yellow.

    There's a nice looking seed-grown available on one of the other forums right now...

    Ok, it's finally set up. I had to rebuild my stand too.


    Tops shelf and stand is done by Thagirion3, on Flickr

    My new stand all built. I'm thrilled with the colors.

    Tank placed on top. I left an over hang in the back for extra shelf space.

    Mist settling. Still a few things I want to do like build a shelf so I can have more plants in the back and I'd love to set up some kind of waterfall in the back left croner. I just can't think of any designs using PVC. I have a small pump I 'd like to use of this. But no ideas.

    Thanks Mike and Heli. It's nice to come home to this now.
    Anyone have any advice on building a simple waterfall?
