ok many questions , Hi Corky good to see you again , yer need a break from there again !!,
thanks for the great feed back people , its only a very small part of my plants , having about hhhmm not really sure but 490 mature nep plants and about 200 or more immature ones and several hundred cuttings , because i sell a lot they come and go so hard to keep track of numbers .
Lowland plants no i dont keep many ones i do have are hard to keep here because of the low temps in winter ,all though we dont get snow or frosts , the temps still get low for us warm blooded Australian people and the low landers dont like it and my green house is way to big to heat ,so the high land plant just love it so i stick with them. thats for where i live in South Australia any how up north they have no trouble keeping them as its tropical there
the lowii is about 9 year old now i recon , from ex-vitro stage any how and has been putting out uppers for the last 2 seasons . now close to the one i seen many times in the wild in Borneo . to get your lowii growing faster , you need to give it lots of natural sun light ok combined with 70% or more humidity and lost of over head misting , this combo increases its growth , mine get about 70 to 80 % full sun , but i use a very large water air con to cool the green house down too keep the temp low as you can in day , but mine get to 30c and more quite often in our 45c days , they still like it as long as the humidity is high no problems will occur , the key with all nep is lost of natural sun light , good humidity and very goos air flow ,and good over head misting
my misting system , on manual for got to put auto on went to long ha ha ah this was take before i put the new extension on too this is the smaller green house look !!
