    So I wanted to put my highland neps in their own little terrarium ,and put them outside. Problem is, they're all used to flourescents...And on my property, it's either sun or no sun...very little in the way of "some sun."

    Then I found waxed paper.

    Made a great shade cloth, it's cheap (though it will rip soon, no doubt), and seems to filter the light pretty well. So just a though for anyone who was frustrated because there was too much direct sun where they really wanted to put their tank.

    Watch out with bringing in your nepenthes from under growlights to sun to growlights a lot. Many times, for most nepenthes, they will go through a slight shock period when transfered between growlights to artificial lights, and vise versa. Besides that, go for it, and enjoy your plants outdoors!

    That's a good point, but I'm not too worried with these specific neps....they're all pretty tough. x judith finn (almost un-killable), ventricosa (only slightly less tough), and sanguniea (from PFT, YAY&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].
    And, like I said, the light is filtered, so they're not being thrust into direct sun. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
