After growing cp's for approx. one year, I just stumbled upon this forum. I read almost every post in each topic area over the last few days...so I'm all caught up!...you people give wonderful advice. What struck me as a wonderful idea, however, is the use of frozen water bottles to drop evening temps for highland nepenthes! I always thought suitable conditions for these plants were out of reach for me. I am now thinking of trying this in a 10 gallon tank/plate glass cover with a few highlands. I'm sure the whole changing the water bottle thing will get to be a pain, but right now it seems to be a fair tradeoff. However, I have two questions:
1) Should the terrarium be completely sealed at night to prevent the loss of cool air?
2) In case one decides to go on vacation, generally how long can most highlands last without a drastic night time drop in temperature?...without feeling any ill effects, of course.
Replies would be greatly appreciated, and again...wonderful forum.
