    nope its under two 4 foot fixtures one grow bulb and one reg florescent bulb 10 hours a day right now , and ive now moved it to my highland terrarium, with the same lighting, bout 80 percent humidity all the time, and stays about 75 to 80 degrease during the day and 60 at night . Would like to cool a little more at night , working on a ice cooling system now, fan through pipe with holes , that open in a basket filled with ice, lots of work, but will come up with some thing more effective down the road , though i do work with the plants most days so its not hard for me to keep up. the system , can go two days without help but thats about it

    you sure its 60 at night ? It might be too cold. some of my neps outside have red spots like that since we've been hitting the 30's - 40's.

    Fungal infection? I'm pretty sure that fungus shows up as red spots on the leaves.

    Oh, and what's the soil mix? It's hard to see from this distance, but it looks a little mucky.

    Oddly enough, there are no basals on that gymnamphora.

    I agree Fungal Prolly no air movement at all .an if you say your heater vent THATS NOT ENOUGH . .plus you prolly need an Airy soil .

    the terrarium has great air movement and ventilation , but before not so much the shelf was over crowded and no fans at all
