    I have a baby N. villosa and it isn't doing well. I'll admit that I don't have the super cool conditions required to grow it well, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever grown N. villosa as an intermediate. I'm sure I'm going out on a limb by asking this, but it's worth a try!

    What's the highest temperatures N. villosa has been known to withstand? For those of you who grow it, I'd appreciate knowing your conditions

    I'm about to get started on ultrahighlands soon. Last year I built the chamber using a chest freezer but the project was ever completed because the freezer had some problems staying cold consistantly. The problem has been fixed now and and I'm on the last finishing touches on the cover, lighting and gathering the potting materials. I did a quick test run last night and everything went smoothly. I would suggest to get a small chest freezer, its the only way to cultivate villosa with ease and success. They're cheap these days, just go on a local classified section and you'll be surpised how many people just want to give those away. Maybe I'll start my thread about the chamber since I've been documenting the entire building process. Good luck though, villosa is a pain and they don't seem to like to adjust to anything but what they like.

    Thanks for the info Cprus. I'm not sure if I want to make something like that, simply because I don't have the room or the resources. Just a question though: How will the lights work inside of the freezer? Won't they malfunction from the cold?

    I'm wondering this as well: Are there any small coolers for sale that would cool, say, a 2.5 gallon tank? My plant is so small and I'd be willing to invest in a small cooler if they exist.
