    Any ideas about thermostats?

    I have a heat lamp that I'm setting up with a terrarium to keep some plants warm enough to be in the terrarium rather than in a different room. The only problem is that on a warmer day the sun comes in and warms it up by itself, so when I was testing the light today it was 87 degrees at four thirty in the afternoon, which is a bit on the hot side and it was undoubtedly hotter during the day. Does anyone know anything I can hook the power cord into that will turn it off when the temperature gets to be about eighty five or so?

    I used an inkbird thermostat for my crested gecko and it works pretty well. You might want to look into one of those.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Most terrarium thermostats can do that. Look for Lucky Reptile, Zoomed etc.
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread:
