hey thanks for sharing, I asked the buyer and he said wait a few months, if the plants turn black, then get a terrarium.
Since we are neighbors, have you grown nepenthes outdoors?
I saw your new pictures and the misting system. looks great!!!
Aside the CPU fan,what else did your 10 gallon tank had?
I noticed. If you are interested enough then maybe we can trade plants someday. ^ _ ^
I have grown nepenthes outdoors once. It was rather a unpleasant experience for me. The first couple of days was fine but the after a 2 weeks, the nepenthes showed sign of shock ( probably due to poor humidity) and was attack by aphid and other things. The problem was that my backyard didn't have a greenhouse and the backyard wasn't sprayed with any ahpid killer or anything. Currently, I have all my larger specimen growing on my windowsill but it's going moved soon to my campus growing chamber.
My 10 gallon tank had a glass top , grow light, and some reflective material on the back and side to trap more light. I used a spray bottle to mist it once in the morning and a couple of times at night. It also had a temp/humidity meter in it.
Ya, maybe when my collection gets bigger since I only started back in July. How long have you been growing?
thanks for the suggestions, I was hoping to get by with just a glass top, grow lights.

I believe 2 or 1 1/2 year ago is when I started out. How many specimens do you have so far ?
You can probably get by. I used 6400k spectrum lights for grow lights and leave them on for 15 hours a day.
