    I think that hairiness has been attributed with the ability to tolerate lower humidity than other species. I have no idea whether this is empirically correct, but my anecdotal observation is that it's not the case. My veitchii all seem much less tolerant of low humidity than many other species.

    Hey guys
    Just ask for your advise about the N. veitchii lowland again. Is it ok to put the plant in the growing chamber with 24 light and the temp stay constant(may be hiegher during the day) at 70*F or 22*C.
    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    It should be fine. Mine regularly gets nights of 10C and lower in winter, and it does OK, it just stops growing and the leaves get smaller, which is common for lowlanders in cool conditions. Temps over 20C should be fine.
