Hey guys. I'm moving the terrarium in the basement so I can grow cephalotus and maybe Heliamphora a little better. I'm going to use a MH light, but it's a huge basement so maybe heat won't be a problem. We might set it up tomorrow. Right now, a hygrometer says humidity is 71% and the temperature is 69.9. This is the temp of the actual air, not the air in a terrarium. The terrarium is still filled with lowlanders in my room.I guess maybe the temp will go to maybe 60 degrees at night? It stays cool year round, and it gets REALLY cold in the winter so I'll use 2 fish tank heaters to keep it a minimum of 60. Does this sound OK? Or should I lower the minimum to like.. 55 or 50 so it'll get cool in the winter?
Alright, now, what do I do with my lowlanders? I've got a bical x campanulata, lowland veitchii, Clipeata clone 1 and N. viking that are my 4 favorite plants so if I have to get rid of 'em i'll be sad lol. I might have to trade them away. I'll get back to you guys and tell the minimum/ maximum temperatures in the terrarium when it's set up. And pics! If you won't make fun of the junk (hey, it IS a basement lol)
SO, how is all of this looking? To be honest, I don't know anything about highlanders (is this considered highland?) so ... yeah what am I supposed to grow besides like... N. ventricosa and "boring" plants like that? Would N. hamata grow well? Or like... what do I do? Lol. I'm such a newb at highlanders (Is that what my tank will be?)?
AHHH SCARY! If anyone wants to trade lowlanders for... plants that like cooler temps (intermediate? I don't know what I'm talking about) let me know.
