    Thanks Nick. I know my Sarracenia reach their full color and potential under 4 48", 40 watt daylight tubes suspended 12" from the ground. Rather short for the tall species though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . Scoaty, I love your N. bicalcarata [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . What are the other Nepenthes species?

    Hi All,

    Heres a picture of my new highland nep chamber. I posted about it a little while ago but I thought it would go well in this thread.

    Its 6' x 4' x 4' and uses 4 flourescent shop lights (8 4' bulbs total) plus a sodium halide bulb. (the two incandescents you see are for heating during the day) The tank is self controling and waters itself each day, turns the lights on and off, humidifies it via a ultrasonic mister, and ventilates it with a small side fan blowing air through a washcloth with water running through it.



    I didnt get much feedback about it before, Id love to hear any comments / suggestions or any questions. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would like to add that you have either a High pressure sodium lamp OR a Metal Halide lamp.
    There is no such thing as a Sodium Halide lamp.

    I must say I see alot of mirrors and tinfoil, and Id have to say they are probably the 2 least efficient means of reflection, flat white paint will reflect more light than the cleanest mirror on the planet, tinfoil acts as an insulator and creates hot spots which is why mylar is generally prefered but mylar is difficult to clean and becomes brittle with time. Thus is why I like paint so much. Its is efficient, easy to clean and it lasts for years.

    Peace

    Actually the mirror will reflect more light than paint most mirrors are over 90% efficient and some near 100%, and I've never had a plant catch fire from aluminum foil.

    Matt your setup is excellent and I may copy the watering system in my highland setup.

    Hi all,

    This is one of my terrariums, which is in our living room at this moment.

    Since the filesize is limited, the quality isn't good at all.

    Greets,

    Thanks joseph,

    You can e-mail me if your interested in any of the specifics on how I built the watering system, it was pretty cheap to make.
