    Those plants are also adpated to those conditions too. And also 60-65F at night is still pretty refreshing nightime air. Also I people do not really say it is mandatory to have Ultrahighlander's in 45-50 at night, but that is what is recorded in thier natural habitats, my Ultrahighlands get what is get's at night around here, last night it got down to 37F outside and they got about 40-50F on my enclosed porch. So they typically are in what you would call "ultrahighland condiitons" And I would like to bring up a subject on N.Burbidgeae people say it will not grow well or pitcher well ith night's below 60F well that's not true in my expierence. I have it in those temps (40-50F) and it is growing just as fast as any other Ultrahighlander I have (excpet Lowii) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] But that is very good point Vic made. Thanks Vic! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    thanks vic for the post.

    well as of the last couple of days the refrig has been down to 58-60 when i place the plants into it. the humidity as been 60-65%. i placed the bags over them last night to hold in moisture and this morning it was 78% in there.
    the Rajah is looking really good with new growth coming from it and the new pitcher is starting to get bigger but has not opened yet.
    the lowii on the other hand is not doing as good and some of the leaves are starting to turn black but the new growth is still looking really good

    there is only one or 2 of the leaves that have done this. it has just started like 2 days ago. only the tips of the leaves are doing this not the hole thing.

    N. rajah page

    hey hopfully this picture came out right. the picture is 2 weeks old. the one leave that is uncurling is all the way open with a little pitcher on it. the pitcher on the bottom is 1cm now but, not open yet. the pitcher that is seen on top is still there but starting to turn black just a little

    (I turned it into a link since geocities won't let you remote load pics off their webserver T)
