    Cooling Idea for Highland Growers

    Any good ideas on how to keep a highland terrarium cool without spending a bunch of money on an ac unit? Thanks

    A lot of people put frozen water bottles in with the plants.

    It might help to have a little more info on your conditions though. What kind of temps are you deal with normally? How big of a tank?

    I have been thinking about starting one and have just seen that the nighttime temperature drop was a big obstacle for most people. Temperatures where I live normally get to 70 during the night and around 80 during the day

    In winter I open a basement window next to my grow tent just a tiny crack at night. Since heat rises and my house thermostat is not on that floor, it doesn't seem to affect my heating bill much. I also bought a Craigslist mini-fridge for $30 that's hooked up to a $20 temperature controller (more precise and another level of protection from freezing) that I put baby highlanders in at night.
