    Yet more nep pics!

    Here are some pics of a couple of my shelves of neps:




    Here's a peak at my shelf of seedlings:


    After a long period of struggles including pests, my N. macrophylla is back to growing properly and has bestowed upon me a new pitcher:


    And my N. flava has made its first pitcher in my care:

    great question!! My fixture is beginning to rust and the paint rust chips are falling into the media I need to keep picking it off the media...but I wouldn't be surprised if there are traces in there. DO ur fixtures rust as well Max??

    BTW...fantastic plants mate. the macrophylla and flava are my dream plants. Maybe someday I can grow them.

    Does your grow room mold with the mylar adhered to the walls? Do you keep humidity a little lower than ideal to avoid issues like that?
    Nice pictures.

    Thanks!
    I don't have problems with rusting - the fixtures don't get wet though because of the trays.

    Nor do I get mold - the humidity is around 50-85% the vast bulk of the time, and since I water the pots by hand, not much water gets splashed around. I used the green water-resistant bathroom sheet rock in this room too.
