    I really like bicalcarata. Just cross in a little VFT for some jaw motion to go along with those fangs...

    MUHAHAHA!

    Anyway, mine are recovering from shipping shock. They don't like the mail habitat apparently.

    The ultra-sonic fogger is waaay better than a fish heater. It adds like..99.99% humidity..it's practically raining in there right now..I have three inches of water and it's awsome.

    EDIT- Not really..puts it to like..80%

    Becareful that water droplets on the leaves are able to dry up throughout the day and at night between fogging sessions or else you can be inviting rot, fungus or viral infections by having water sitting in the leaf axials. I suggest placing the fogger on a timer so that the leaves are allowed to dry up before it comes on again.

    I do not know how large your aquarium is that you are using but I am doing the egg crate false bottom with PVC pipe (to hold the crate off the floor) and the lighting grid material overtop. I do not use a fogger or a heater, the 1" of water below all my lowland pots is enough by itself to keep the humidity 80%+ at all times with condensation on the glass but not on the leaves. The leaves are simply "sticky" or tacky- as if the plants are sweaty.

    Where do you get a timer? I don't really think I need this, because the plant is above the "fog" and just appreciates the humidity..and a few rain drops every few hours...the plant seems to dry up quickly enough though. If I got a timer, what would I set it on? Turn on for an hour, then shut off for an hour to dry?

    you can get a timer at a hardware store . your plant may seem happy but if you wait latr it might show problems dues to the onoging fog .
