N. albomarginata, N. reinwartdiana
These are the seeds I'm attempting to germinate in my new terrarium setup. The only information I can find on them claims that they are both from Borneo (at least), and that they have a massive elevation range, effectively making them both lowland and highland.
I, of course, didn't know this when I purchased them, because I'm like that.....anyway, this sounds like a really great thing, because what I'm getting out of it is that they can tolerate a huge variance in conditions, both temperature and humidity related. Not in quick succession of course, but it seems like they could adapt to pretty much whatever I've got going on in there.
Am I being naive? Lol
I am willing (and planning, sometime) to get a small undertank heater from zoo-med (or comparable) to warm the water trays of perhaps half or 1/3 the tank, I'm just not sure what kind of priority that is right now. We're approaching summer, and days here are in the high-seventies, and only going to get warmer, while the nights right now are in the mid-fifties / low-sixties.
I'm thinking heating shouldn't be an issue until Fall rolls around, by which time I may have a new or completely modified setup. I'm just wondering if there's anything else I should be doing right -now-.
The seeds are germinating on chopped (finely) lfs labeled as "orchid moss" (don't ask me why I did that, I don't know). They're in small drained plastic pots, sitting atop little hills (you'll see when I upload a pic), so that they're not standing in water. They're currently contained inside of a larger plastic container until my glass-lid for the aquarium comes in. They get top-watered via a mist-bottle every other day or so.
Finally got a timer so that they don't have to rely on my inconsistent sleep-schedule, and it's on a 16-hour photoperiod.
Have I done everything conceivably right, assuming that the seed wasn't too old and is still viable?
(Edit) pics. I'll just put links because they're larger than I thought they were, lol.
