    from what i hear, there are varying degrees of hairiness when it comes to pillosa.

    Thanks you everyone for your comments. Haha yes it is quite a risk!
    The conditions, max 25'C during day, at night 13-14'C
    Humidity constantly 80%+. I switch of the cooling unit twice daily for about 10 mins so the tank gets filled with fog. Im growing around 25-30 HL nepenthes including some rare/exp ones like klossii, hamata hairy red etc. and all are showing good growth.

    I was thinking of keeping the heli on some kind of a stand so that it is closer to the lights & should i bag it for some time to acclamitize it? Will go through the older posts later today when i get the time

    Those temps seem ok, I don't think you should put the heli super close to the lights because you don't want the temps to get into the 80s for the heli.

    Btw nice to see another 16 year old HL nep grower .

    Heli, the temps wont change as there is a thick glass between the terrarium and lights and the fan throws the cool air everywhere.

    Haha yes
    Who else is of my age here?
    The problem in India is there are hardly 2 or 3 serious cp growers out of which im the only one who cultivates HLs so there is no one to ask for help or share info etc...

    Also the should i spray the plant with biostin before putting it in the bag to prevent any fungus or disease that can occur due to high humidity and no air circulation?

    Oh in that case you could prop it up. I don't think the spray is necessary if you have trichoderma, or you could remove the bag every day so it can get fresh air.

    I am currently 16, we also have Peatmoss who is 17, sundrew who is 15 I think, and some younger people too.

    Trichoderma comes in a granular form and a powder form, solid form you just sprinkle on top of the soil and water, the powder form you mix with water and just water the plant with it.
