    Thanks for the kind comments guys.

    Zero, it is my understanding that H/Lers can take a lower humidity during the day, and will be okay with that if they get higher humidity and a temperature drop during the night. So that is what I aim for.

    I also top dress all of my Nep pots with about an inch or so of lfs, to keep humidity levels up around the small plants. Most plants will adjust to ambient humidity levels if it is done gradually enough. Also if I'm around during the day, I'll try and mist the plants and their dropping tendrils, to encourage pitchering.

    Great stuff as always, Doug! These sorts of pics are the ones that make my collection grow and my wallet shrink.

    Thanks Clue.

    Yes, I'm noticing that CP's eat more than just bugs. They also like to chomp down greenbacks, devour credit cards, and finally rifle through pockets with sticky tendrils, searching out spare change for dessert. And they are quite thorough.

    Another book? Pheel is an over-achiever.

    And another note, how is the N. clipeata looking, Doug?

    Thanks polywer2345.

    Clue my clips are doing well. I was able to successfully root two offsets from my clone 3. The benefits of tc hormone vigor, I guess.
