    Where should I put my hamata?

    This is a bit of a stupid question but im really paranoid because this is my first "nice" nep. I am not sure where I should place the hamata in my tank. Should it be right in front of the humidifer so that its always getting 100% humidity or can that cause the plant to rot, also the plant gets less of a temp drop at night while in front of the humidifer. My setup gets really good ventilation because its a 10 gallon so I am not sure.

    Nothing should be right in the mist. It causes mold, fungus, and/or rotten death. It was just catching the tail winds of the mist while it was here.

    I placed it to the right of the humidifier so that it gets a good temp drop and still gets high humidity

    Look as long as you have near enough to high land conditions , there really is not a problem for them , there actually not that hard to grow , give them loads of good sun light , good humidity ,good air flow and you will be right , ,dont hold back on the light , its where most people go wrong with nep's all of them will do a heap better in 70 to 80 % full sun just you need to keep that humidity up and the cool air flowing , that prevents the leaf burn and dehydration, , and for misting , i do all mine on a hourly day bases for 4 min per hour , as long as you have free draining medium like live sphag , root rot it nullified ,only when you use incorrect potting mediums to you get root rot occurring,mine get 70% direct sun and still look for more

    Ok thanks, the hamata is in a 10 gallon tank propped up so that it is 5" from two 55watt cfls. The temps in the days are 67-70 and at night are 57-60. The humidity is never below 90% and the airflow, let me just say the fan is like half the size of the terrarium.
