    Rob,

    Thanks for sharing your observations. Such information is always interesting, and invariably useful!

    Rob.
    Butt out! You field observers know nothing! All information used in study of Nepenthes should come form "couch Taxonomists."
    Just kidding, lol. Actually I wish you would chime in more often, as these tidbits are extremely useful. We can't duplicate many of these conditions in Nature, but it gives us a broader idea of what we are trying to do.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Thanks so very much for the reply Rob!

    Hmm....this will be a very interesting summer with the nepenthes in the greenhouse and all. Gonna have to record changes in root mass and growth. Course they are all in terrariums and such which is very tough to get high light levels within.

    Dustin,

    Out of curiosity, why are they in terreriums within the greenhouse? To get the humidity ultra high?
    Perhaps you could cover the bottom of the tanks with Mylar? That should increase the light a little. That is just an idea, so if anyone has a downside to that, please tell me(ie Mylar contains Flouride and is posionous!-not that I know of , but along those lines).

    Regards,

    Joe

    Hehe that made me laugh a little Joe. No they aren't even in the greenhouse! I don't DARE put them in there with the heater unreliability. They are in my house in tanks.
