    the slackii i sent you was growing in a typical potted terrarium which had no growlights, etc. I just used a ten gallon tank, glass cover, and et the sunlight do the work. Try misting the tank more often and slackii could take less high temps.

    humidity- probably 60%-80%
    soil- sand,peat moss,small bit of perlite, and a top dressing of lfs
    water-my whole terrarium has an inch of watter at the bottom, i mist 1-2 a day and water 1-2 a week.
    temperature- i just looked and it raised up 82F

    thanks

    sounds too hot for slackii. they can take it, but in my experoience, not consistantly. Humdity sounds good. try making temps around 65F?
