    Just got my plant! It's a Bical 'Red Flush'. So excited..! It has 3 inch leaves and no pitchers! woot..I get to watch it grow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] My terrarium has a cool flourecent and a full spectrum....60-90%humidity...changes for some reason..that'll change tomorow with my fogger...I put the little plant up on a shot glass...lol...I guess it'll help with drainage.temp is around 80...I have my green dragon in there to see how it compares with a vft growing outside..I can't wait till it pitchers! Anyone know how long it'll take? I think it already has..or is about to...there are little vines sticking out of the leaves. Oh yea..it's pretty close to the the flourecent lights....like..three inches away. Will this cause burn?

    Hi again..I don't have a digital camera..I think you can go to walmart and scan your pictures and make them digital...If I did take a picture though, The plant would only have 4 leaves [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] It is making two new pitchers already..and I guess it has already made two and they died...(before I got it) I'll take pics and update this if you guys want me to..(when it pitchers, etc.) I don't think many people have kept a log on neps and shared it with anyone from when the neps were sprouts...

    I'm setting up a nifty feature to my terrarium.
    I will have 1/3 the tank full of distilled water and will have a grate above the water. The bical and other plants will be above the water on the grate. As the water evaporates, it'll condensate on the side walls and on the top. The water will fall and "rain" on my plants daily, but not enough to shock it. maybe like 1 or two drops hourly. The water will go back to the bottom and repeat the process...

    Oh yes, and just how do I evaporate the water? The Ultra-Sonic fogger by Exo-Terra...it's awsome! and most definently worth the 30 bucks...I'll post pics as soon as I can.

    Does anyone know where I could get a plastic great that can be cut easily..was gunna use boxes...

    Plastic "egg crate" is exactly what you are talking about, some home improvement stores sell it. GOOD LUCK, I have heard this done before, supposedly well!!
