    Mine outside got caught in rain. Leaves rotted. Got septoria leaf spot badly. Really a cabbage. Might do well in places that the ramps did well. Spring water. Cool

    That's too far from the house, if anyone were to come up on them and them in pots.... I know what they would think lol
    Plus, I got to -30f last winter, and near 100f in the summer.... everything I read says anything above 75f induces fungal attack
    (sounds an awful lot like heliamphora requirements in many ways, other than maybe avoiding getting the foliage wet)

    right now, I'm having the perfect weather conditions for them (as far as I know) so they are sitting on the front porch (shaded)

    I figured you would be the one who would have tried them already... lol
    thinking maybe a 5 gallon bucket bubbler hydro set up in my cool basement with just ambient lighting from the plant racks.

    Cheap, easy and just need an aquarium pump, I could recycle the water from my weekly aquarium water changes for them.
    Should be a good organic nutrient base with lots of trace elements

    open to any suggestions :-)

    If you could grow in leca, providing constant water flow and large amounts of air pumped through the substrate would provide considerable evaporative cooling to the root zone. Using a cooler as a pot would probably help too.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.

    that's along the lines of what I was thinking too.... :-)
    there is one picture in that PDF file where its obvious the entire root ball is submerged.

    I think it was being grown by some peeps in haiku. Lower elevation than me. Maybe about 1000 feet. More humid warmer. They have a truncate in greenhouse. Just green house preventing wet leaves

    A round drink cooler filled almost to the top with leca, with an air manifold set on the bottom. Top water with some means of diffusing the water evenly, and let it drain back out the bottom. You wouldn't have a dirt floor in your basement would you? If not, get some ear plugs and a jack hammer and give the water someplace cool to hang out when it's not working.
