    Thanks everyone!

    Romie, it is a very easy Nep to grow in my experience

    Zero, I do supplement them with some grow bulbs but no added humidity.

    Nepenthusiast, my humidity and temps vary from day to day and from season to season.....but for about 2/3 of the year (including now) I have day temps of between 75-85 F and night temps of 55-65 F......humidity varies from 30-90% depending on the humidity outside (we have low ceilings so it gets really humid at night when the windows are all closed). I grow all my Neps in coco/perlite and in coco lined hanging baskets.....I think the coco baskets are the ticket since they allow air to the roots, but this mix and pots need watered about every other day (I also fertilize my Neps).

    Josh, Im not sure if it is the pollen or fragrance but every time one of my orchids opened he would have asthma attacks about every 3 hours on the button.....once the flowers were gone he was back to normal.....so I figured I would rather kick them out than have him react like that.....he doesnt have the typical "allergy symptoms" of sneezing or anything, his lungs just simply lock up and he cant breath.

    Thanks again everyone for taking the time to view my pics!

    Happy growing!
