    Hiya Paul-

    Thanks for your input

    You mentioned that " there are better options if you're a handy do-it-yourself-er".

    Would you have a step by step on how to do it yourself (better yet a pic with explanations), or has that been posted and you can redirect the directless to it?

    If possible, I'd like the final product to be nice and clean, and not a bunch of hoses and a myriad of electrical lines runnin around . . . ala Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory.

    Good Growin,
    E

    1) Wine coolers cost more than regular refrigerators
    2) Will they get cool enough? Serving temperatures for wines (depending on the wine) are from 43-66F. Most people store their wines around 55F.

    You'd be better off buying a commercial glass door refrigerator from a store going out of business. The kind used for selling soft drinks or dairy products.

    Given the size that Nepenthes grow to a little dinky 3 shelf wine cooler isn't going to have much capacity.

    What would be really cool is to get one of those door-less soda coolers. They use a sheet of air to keep the cold air in, and warm air out.You could probably put a whole HL terra in there.

    Hiya Not A Number-

    1) If anything, I was gonna look at Craigslist and like you mentioned, maybe a restaurant or bar going outta biz for a used one

    2) There are some pop/beverage units out there that will go the 30's . . . Brrrrrrr

    I was just planning for a nice single N. villosa to occupy that beverage/wine cooler. So one of them small 12 bottle jobs should last a couple of years.

    I'm focusing on pop or beverage units now, wine coolers have tinted glass to protect the wine from UV lights.

    Again, this is something I'm just kickin around my hollow head of mine
