    FWIW, I've got about 30 TC aristolochioides (3 or 4 clones) and they grow like gangbusters, alongside talangensis and others from similar altitudes. They probably are not dipping below 50 at night. My villosa are in the same chamber, too, and they are doing fine so far, but I know I need to get them into colder temps before too much long longer.

    They are in a mix of NZ sphagnum, coarse perlite, coconut husk chips, and tree fern. The room has one HPS and one MH bulb, 400 watts each, with a few mixed fluorescents over to one side, with the plants distributed throughout the room at various distances away from the lights. The humidity is a bit on the low side for Nepenthes. Fixing that is on my to-do list.

    Sounds like you are constructing a terrific "grow room". Thanks for sharing the information.

    I have a drinks fridge which works wonders for my villosa seedlings at night. I've had my eye on the wine fridge for the day time, but my life isn't worth the attempt to appropriate that. Plus I like wine too much LOL.
