My Grow List: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...128#post865128
I grow my highlanders in my garage where there is a natural temp drop at night. Sometimes I open the garage door at night to let out all the warm air, and equalize the temp to outside temps. I live near the beach so I naturally get low night temp drops outside. I will try to get a pic of the setup real soon. I will definitely do it once I get my new plants on Sunday, if not sooner. Thanks again everyone, and thanks for your kind words Varun .
Great stuff, Daniel. Your N. "Marbled Dragon" looks a little toothy, which is cool. I also like your redish live LFS. Looking forward to seeing some more from your jaq.

Wow, they look wonderful! Good looking sphagnum moss you have there also. I wish I could get mine to grow like that.
Thanks for the reply Daniel. Well...I guess I need to figure out a way to use the weather outside to cool my highlanders as well. hmmm.....I am thinking of some way to vent the cold air from outside to my basement directly into the nep setup. Well...I guess I need to first come up with a good setup. I am considering a number of options:
1) terrarium style: use made 90 gal aquarium
2) terrarium style... but DIY style with lighter materials as I won't be filling the 90 gal with water.
3) indoor walk-in greenhouse style
The problem for me is that it has to be easily transportable..i.e, rip it apart, move and put it up. Thats why I am not too enthusiastic of getting like a 90gal tank.
Do what I did. PVC + 6mil plastic = success.

I am actually considering that. However, I am also thinking about using a lot sturdier material than just plastic sheets. Imagine this: making a nice display style...easy to move terrarium style setup using lexan sheets. Basically custom make them such that I can construct a terrarium piece by piece. SO all sheets come apart. Have a sheet at the bottom, but use a tray for the plants as their main bottom. SO water will collect in there. However, they will be on gravel to prevent sitting in water. This way, the purpose of humidity will be met, the issue with a small compact setup that is easily movable will be met as well making it more compatible with any house that I find next year.
very nice, some of the sphagnum in my hamata pot is turning red now.
very nice nepenthes
