    Ohh OK, I am adjusting my Truncata to the windowsill and it seems to fair well with the humidity at 60-70% as I have 2 humidifiers running. I have the Ultrasonic pouring fog all over the entire plant and it likes it much! Why, the largest pitcher (8inches) is doing VERY good with low humdity and hasn't wilted! I am very ahppy with the progress. I hope it gets as big as the one in your g-house! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] That would be something! Nate, if you saw Tony's Trucnata in the g-house you wouldn't be saying

    It could be that the Khasianna and Truncata just have not acclimatized yet. They were rooted cuttings that I planted 2-3 months ago. The Coccinea was a well established plant, 18" across with two growth points. It has produced 4 pitchers in the 2-3 months that I have had it.

    I measure the humidity with an Omega brand digital pocket hygrometer. It's very handy and responds quickly. It is interesting to find so many 'microclimes' around the house and yard. Location really does make a difference.

    I have an Ampullaria that just sat idle for 3-4 months, then all of a sudden, out popped 4 large pitchers and it hasn't stopped since. Course, that's in a terrarium under 100w metal halide in 80-100% humidity.

    I would still prefer to grow Nepenthes out in a room.

    Same here. A terrarium serves as a barrier between you and your plants. That's why I try my best to acclimmate my favorite nepenthes to the windowsill, although I know they would be happier in a terrarium.

    Doug W, is there a website where you can buy an Omega Hygrometer like yours? If so could you message me or post here? Thanks!

    The pocket humidity meter is the model PTH-1xa and it is available at www.Omega.com. It costs $49 plus shipping.

    It's a fun toy!
