    Its a healthy debate. Lol. Anyways, it depends on a few things evergreen, age, conditions, and probably what its growing in. They can take a month, to a few months I imagine.

    I keep my baby rajah right next to my bedroom window which remains open or at least cracked all the time. It puts out a new leaf at least once a month. The temperature rarely gets above 65F in my bedroom, and is in the low 50s at night. I imagine the breeze that the plant is exposed to can be as low as 40F, as it's pretty cold outside here in Washington. Mine seems to be growing faster (or maybe just larger) since the winter weather set in, but that could be due to better lighting.

    I believe a large bottle of frozen water with a fan blowing over it might work, but it depends on if your terrarium is closed off or what. Cooling isn't an issue here >_<. I use a box fan in my window to pull cold air into my room. I can get my room down to about 45-50F at night, and still manage to warm it up to about 75-80F in the day using nothing but house temp and the fluorescent lights on my growrack which is just one of those cheap 40$ coldframe mini greenhouses from Lowes.

    If you have a small tank like mine (10 gallon tank), it most definitely works!
