    I have my neps in a window sill in my room. It gets about in the 82-86 range. They are highland. At night the temps just won't come down. How could I get them to drop a little at night? Is there anything any of you guys do? Thanks.

    No suggestions? Guess no one else has the same problem I have.

    A short term solution could be to freeze a two liter bottle of water and keep it near your plant on a windowsill each night.

    Buy a single-room air conditioner. You should be able to get temps down to nearly 15 C, which may be low enough, depending upon exactly what species you are trying to grow.

    You should try a swamp cooler.

    You don't give many details about your setup but a fan blowing across the the moisure of the soil could cool things down in the same manner as a swamp cooler. You would need to water more frequently but many plants respond favorably to good air circulation anyway.

    Would blowing a fan on to plants take the humidity away? I just have my plants by a window. No terrarium or anything. Just sitting there in the pots. It's just too warm at night. I'll try the bottle idea. Maybe some ice packs or something.
