ok i have a few more questions, while i have yet to get the pics scanned so my unknown Nep can be identified i have come up with a few more questions. ill have to build my growing chamber offsite so the widest i can go is about 3.5 ft. if i made a chamber 3.5deep x 4ft tall x 6 ft long, how many adult Nep's could i have? im not looking to keep any of the very large species. just a few"average" sized ones. i will be making the chamber out of 2x4s and plywood and probably glass doors. what waterproofing is recommended for the wood?
also along with my current unknown i was wondering what other small to medium sized species/hybrids are relitivly inexpencive, easy to locate and good for a beginer(i am only interested in lowland forms). i will be researching species this week and probably ordering a few next week before cold weather sets in. they will be kept in a 75 gal terrarium with some orchids untill the chamber is complete.
also i will be using shoplights since the Nepenthes University website said they work fine, but do i place them inside the growchamber or do i make a glass top and set them on it, the high humidity of the chamber has me wondering which is better.
sorry for all the questions, but due to my remote location(NE corner of Montana) i dont have much to go on untill my book gets here
