    How hard are they to grow ?
    I could setup a large setup using coragated polycarb then for the front plexi.
    Do they like lots of light like a ton ? Or a lower amount ? I know heat should be like 90 f. Am I crazy or would that thing outgrow a 10 gallon aqurium ? Could I just lop it back every once in a while ? I have some experience setting up a terrium for drosera but I heard lowlanders like less light.
    Maybe you could point me to a lowlander setup thread ?

    Raff is not a good terrarium plant long term. The only lowlander I can think of off the top of my head that is a good terrarium plant (thats in cultivation) is bellii. Raff leaves eventually get pretty huge.

    I give all my neps the strongest (fluorescent) light they can stand.

    bellii forms / hibrids would definatly work. I have a few and they stay really small...

    My neps iare under sheltered sun from the top (layer or shade cloth) BUT the sides are not shaded at all so it gets plenty of light from the sides and the wall it is against is the north east.. so it gets lots of direct evening sun too.

    Hello,

    You just need to learn not to blurt things out, newbies need to learn and I am just trying to teach you good habits. I wish Phissionkorps would follow suit.


    Garren @ Embaressed for this mess.

    What kind of flourescent lights do you guys use for your lowlanders? Also, what wattage etc?
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    When I grew lowlanders, I had them under 2 shop light ballast fixtures. Each fixture had 2 different tube, 1 "warm" and 1 "cool" fluorescent tube. That mix seemed to work great.
