    N.muluensis x lowii media?+GH picks.

    Hears a pick of the recent change to the indoor greenhouse. I added a 400w MH light. The neps stopped pitchering, I think because of the lack of quality light. I had the greenhouse in front of a pitcher window but I think the green stripes in the covering was limiting the light getting in. They are bouncing back and starting to get new pitchers again after about 3 weeks.








    I had a little bout with spider mites and it really set the N.muluensis x lowii back.
    I have them planted in LFS and a 1-1 LFS and perlight water with RO and 60% +- RH.
    I think I have about 4 of them.
    What is a good mix to use for these, they are small only about 1-2" across.
    Thanks

    I use mostly cypress bark mulch with live LFS on top. I have a little bit of peat/perlite thrown in to fill in some of the air gaps.

    Here is a picture of one of the pitchers:

    The GH is 6x6x7"hi.
    150$ at Canadian tire it works great indoors, out it may be a little week in the wind.
    I would think a 400w would do for neps. Next step is a 1000w It may be a little over kill. Especially on the pocket book to pay the power bill.

    How about light and humidityDave? I did repot one of them the other day. I purchased them this summer. It didn't look like the roots had grown at all. The LFS perlite may not be airey enough for them.
    Thanks for the replys.

    I grow mine with 80%+ humidity in a terrarium with four tubes of cool white T8 32-watt fluorescent light about 25 centimeters (10 ") above the plant. The temperature hovers around 13C (55F) in my basement.

    I experiemented with less light and humidity and the plant did not pitcher as well.

    The purple color inside the pitcher makes this one of my favorite neps.


    Cindy,

    How are your highland neps doing? If they are doing OK, I would try this one.
