    I just finished setting up a small new terrarium to house a single N. campanulata. I thought I would post a picture of it here. Like my large highland grow chamber this tank waters itself on a timer.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do you set up a automatic watering with a timer?

    Regards,

    Use a cheap 10 pond pump, some flexible tubing and a cheap plug in timer set to run 15 minutes a day.

    works for me

    Can one get a big pump with a tube in, say a trash can full of RO water, and use a cheap timer for auto watering to water from several spouts?

    Hi Joe,

    In my large grow chamber I have exactly what you described set up. A large pump pumps water into a pvc pipe and from that pipe 15 small hoses are available to be attached to pots. Works like a charm.

    I use the same sort of system for my Darlingtonia, accept I have it outside and the pump is running 24/7. It works great!
