    Heat sounds good. May stunt the lowland Neps a tad but once they've adjusted it shouldn't bother them too much. My gh is heated in the morning at 55 midday at 65 and night 50.

    The mixing tap with good water is a great idea for Nepenthes. Nepenthes apprecaite a bit of hardness in thier soil and benifit from it. Remeber these plants are in nutrient and mineral deffecient soil not nutrient and mineral ABSENCE, so the mixed water should make them happy.

    Gracilis would per up even without the vitamin solution! lol. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    On the humidity issue, the pitchers may refill themselves if they have a little fluid in them right now, but if they don't you should fill them up halfway or more, the extra water will be reabsorbed and will greatly benifit the plant as it settles in to your gh. Misting it daily will keep humidity levels fine, but sadly I am not home enough to do that! With school and after school activity's it jsut isn't possible so my plants are still adapting to my environment, but under decent humidity (minimum-55% Max-100%)

    I have not read throught all of this because catching up after 5 days gone is hurting my head. I just wanted to put it that I froze my ventricosa and khasiana solid for 2 days last year and they didn't even notice. I don't recommend it but there you go.

    Ventricosa and Khasiana are the plastic neps. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Whatever you give them they adapt to it.
