    Hmm, I don't think its the day temperatures that are the problem, but the night tempertures. Highs of 85 are fine, if you can get it down to 55-60 at night. Since you can't, Elsantaclause, it could be a problem. If the day tempertures were any lower that would just make the temperture drop lower than it already is. That, in my experience, has been worse than having hight day temps. The times when my Nepenthes thrive are the times when the temperture drop is biggest, not when the temps are the lowest.
    Mabye you can enclose it an a house of icepacks at night lol. If you can't get it any cooler you could always try growing it in your conditions, who knows it might work, even if it doesn't look great it probably won't die at least not for a while anyway. And if worst comes to worse you can trade it for something else in the trade forum.

    Edit: Oh yeah forgot to mention...Nice plant!

    What if I put the Glabrata in an open glass tank at night and put bags of ice around it? Do you think that will work? Or would a small fan work blowing a cup of ice at the plant work?

    Hi,
    I did that when I first started growing. It worked a little (got it down from 68 to 65). I'd say try it for a few days and see how it effects the temperture. It might not be much but its a start.

    The two things I'd be a little concerned about:
    1) how much you move the Glabrata around. Try to find a solution that minimizes the stress you put on your plants. Maybe a tank that you could put over Glabrata, and then fill up with ice packs?

    2) When I did that my plants all got root rot. Mine wasn't open glass and I had them in there all the time so that probably was a deciding factor and I'm sure it won't be a big deal to you.

    I honestly don't know whether it will help at all. Try it. See what happens. Nothings more valuble than 1st hand x-spear-ee-unc. As you can see ice packs never did much for me but perhaps if you have more you'll have more luck.
    Hope that helps. Do others concur with what I say or am I all wrong?
