    Yes, it's a Walmart special oil-filled radiator. Recently put a tray full of water on top of it to try to improve the humidity.

    That's what I thought it was. I might try a similar setup, having the radiator hooked up to a thermostat. For humidification, I use an ultrasonic humidifier hooked up to a humidistat.

    Uh, which one? The raff, since it is the only one with my thumb for perspective? I have been growing that plant for 5 years. It came out of tissue culture in 1999. I'm really not good at growing plants quickly. I believe I have just recently improved my horticultural practices with a better potting mix and foliar feeding, (Thanks Drew), so I'm hoping to become much better at it.

    I got the bical last year from Black Jungle. The pitchers are not much bigger than when I bought it as they first got smaller after it arrived.

    Actually, the thermistat on the radiator works pretty well. I've had it in there for a few years and only recently had to turn it up a little. Minimum temperature is consistantly 75 degrees.

    How often do you have to fill your humidifier with water? I had one in there at first, but it was too much of a pain to keep filling it with water and keeping it clean.

    hey SRduggins, what kind of humidifier did you try? I use water from my RO/DI (5 stage [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]) system for my humidifier and rarely have to clean it (maybe once a year?) But it recently broke maybe do to age, but I suspect because I droped it when I was filling the water tank (opps). Santos don't worry you just started growing I suspect SR has been growing just alitte longer then you...

    I don't remember much about the humidifier. Probably 4 years ago. Just that it came from Walmart and had two water tanks on the sides. Now that I think about it, it may not have been an ultrasonic one. Plus the humidistat it came with wasn't very accurate.

    Now when it gets dry, (Santa Anas), I just flood the bottom with tap water. Seems to help, and the chlorine gas that escapes just might be keeping the chamber free from fungus.
