    Bio's Highland setup.

    Hey guys!

    Over the last few days I've been working on setting up a 30 gallon highland tank. I ordered a temperature/humidity dial., and some nice lights. I was just taking some pics to post:

    N. Maxima? Respond if you dig the yogurt pot. (thanks Paul )

    when my lights finally came! I grabbed the box, and started unpacking:


    was a bit concerned by the combination of this:


    and this:


    but everything was all right:


    I had it set up right on the tank, but it was getting too hot, so I raised it up about 8in.

    Look good? I can adjust it if necessary, so let me know.


    Thought this was a cool shot:



    More Pics of actual plants to come. Thanks for you input.

    Looks like you're as creative with pots as me . I use old noodle bowls and other random assorted things.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    A bunch of pitchers are starting to open:

    N. Deep Sigh


    tubby Cephalotus pitcher getting ready to open:

    This and the below plant were both recently received by paul, so the results aren't really mine to claim yet.


    N. Maxima(?) pitcher opened up (not colored yet):


    another pic:


    and probably my favorite right now N. Petiolata from Ryan with a inflating pitcher:



    Looks like its about to burst!

    Pitcher which formed before I was caring for it:

    I forgot with this round of pics, I'll post one soon tho.


    N. Petiolata pitcher opened up:




    Here is my shameful plant pic. I popped off the new tendril while unpacking this plant, and now I really regret it.
    N. Caesar x veitchii:

    That tendril is moving so slowly...

    N. Deep Sigh hasn't opened up its new pitcher yet, but It's new leaf is unfurling quickly:


    Here's a bigger shot:

    UPDATE!!! finally.

    N. 'Deep Sigh':

    This plant opened its first real pitcher in my care since I got it sempember. The first one never opened, I assume from the stress of moving.



    N. Robcantleyi x Talangensis:








    N. Petiolata:

    older pitcher



    new pitcher (it's a little mutated, I'm not sure why):



    I'm going to be creating a new setup soon, so check back.
