    Rather than tell you that low humidity won't hurt your plants as long as they are adjusted to it slowly, I'll show you.

    This is my back porch rail. Notice the reading on the hygrometer/thermometer:

    This is on the east side of the house and I expect the temps to get into the low to mid 50f range overnight.

    My VFTs and D. scorpioides. The D. scorpioides got nipped by frost about 5 weeks ago and are slowly recovering.


    And some P. 'Sethos' cuttings that are liking the sun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]


    The plants are in the shade from about 1:30 on.

    I think you mean the 7 peat pellets? One has a tooth pick sticking out of it? I was trying to sprout Sarracenia seed in them. I had two seeds sprout and these are being left to do their thing or not.. If nothing grows in a couple more weeks I'll stick ping leaves in them to grow out.

    Nice set up Steve - much more aesthetic than my "ghetto" look at the lab.

    It's only temporary. By this fall it will have more of a "ghetto" look to it as I get more plants through trades and cuttings. If you look closely at the P. 'Sethos' in the first pic, you can see that it is already beginning. They are planted in cups that once held grapefruit slices.

    Mannex, I don't think you even need the tank over the plants. They should do fine without it after a little aclimation.

    jimscotscoot, you know "ghetto" is good, right?

    Alright, sounds good. I'll remove the tanks. What do you guys reccomend for my highland N. ventricosa though?

    Ventracosa is pretty hardy it should be okay.

    Steve I like your D. scopidoes. I wish i could grow my Mexican Pings outside. It gets too hot here (ironically). I would really pay attentiond to the pygmy dews that I have.
