I don't think Ron was the only one who got the impression from your questions that these were perhaps the first plants you had acquired, so it wasn't unrealistic to think your skill level was more in the novice range. I thought so too. It just goes to show you, it is wise to reveal as much as you can about your experience with the plants in question, so people don't need to fill in the blanks ;-)

Mass if you don't mind me asking...where did you get the n. edwardsiana
There should be no assumptions regarding someone's skill level...ridiculous
We all have the same thing in common which is we appreciate cultivation in cps period..
My asking to veiw others photos and gaining insight on their personal experiences is what a forum is for.

Of course, there would be no assumptions made, in any direction, if the person posting provides enough information about their growspace, rather than leaving the readers to guess and speculate. :-)

I simply wished to point this out, not to call into question your horticultural skills or experience.

Why in the hell should he need to reveal ANYTHING about himself to obtain grow tips on a particular species.
His "growspace" is either up to par, or it isn't. That's his problem to work on..
We were all able to answer his questions meanigfully and intelligently regardless of "sufficient context".
Paul, You obviously just want to talk about greenhouses and growspaces... so.... YOUR problem here, is the same thing I pointed out to you on the pro boards. Get.. Over.. Yourself..
Just because you have a greenhouse doesn't make you better than everyone else. Please explain that to your ego for me.
Elec, I'll pm you regarding the seed grown edwardsiana orders.. I'm done here.
so far mine is one of the less picky neps to grow,temps day 60/70 nights 50/60 humidity day 50/60 night 60/70 basically i grow mine open to house environment as all my neps are ,apart from having a large tray of damp sphag that all the nep pots are in to raise humidity around the plants(a bit)not very hard so far but my plant is young and has not seen a summer yet,but summers here don't really happen so not too worried about that
My conditions are similar to Corkys. My humidity is a lil higher though. I've only had my hamatas for around a month but they seem to grow steadily. I wouldnt say they were difficult at all.
Wow. Just wow.

Only trying to get everyone to take a step back...
I don't think it is a bad idea at all to fill people in on what you already can do and what you might need some in-depth advice on.
Perhaps, if it isn't clear what someone is capable of, maybe ask for clarification before making advice that might come across as scathing.
With that being said, can everyone resume giving him some tips on growing some wonderful plants like you all have?!
I feel the same way every time I see you talking down to people. Like you're better than them because you own a greenhouse.

Just because your grow space has changed, doesn't mean you as a person should too. I liked you better before..
For both of our sakes, quit talking down to people like they're beneath you. It's not nice.
