    well....yeah! 2-3 villosas is fine....but for variety and too keep the wait interesting...go for like a hamata or a lowii. They will be faster and will keep you happy while the villosa chugs along slower than a mountain. BTW.....Those plants should be able to take those temps...would they??

    Wasn't that the point? Slow plants that will not outgrow the container until you can afford a full sized setup?

    well! If you get like a 2 inch hamata....it will NOT OVER GROW A CHAMBER in 2 yrs +. Besides those are the size of plants available. Its not a bical for heavens sake. lol!

    Doorman's top!! ooh yeah! thats a heck of a plant as well. Definite choice IMO.

    be sure to get #1 though. cause #2 is very uninteresting and more intermediate growing. muluensis is another small, slow, cold loving plant. beautiful color too

    Here's a link you might find useful. Rlhirst did something similar.

    And yeah, you've got to put something in there besides villosa... you'll be bored as hell. From what I've heard watching villosa grow is like watching continents move.

    I'm not an expert but I will go for the cooler!

    its more quiet, lightweight, is made on plastic so you can make as many holes as you need and then use polyurethane foam and epoxi to seal the cables and hoses on place and be sure the chamber stays insulated.

    And as xvart say, you should start on the proyect now, that will give you time to start measuring and cuting holes, fixing cables and runing the sistem to see that works fine and detect any posible problem that can come across... maybe even after the chamber is complete and running set the nepenthes that you will grow in so they aclimate to the new "home" before you go to the college (if you use the cooler you can travel with your chamber running) on that way you will be sure they are doing good there and concentrate on the college.
