    Hey everyone as you may already know I am thinking about getting into the UltraHighlands and need some questions answered. I am in need of major help in how to super cool my terrarium to 50-55F at night. I am out of ideas and need people's advice who grow these or know very effective cooling methods. I will be groing them if I ever figure out how to cool my 20 gallon terrarium. So these will be in a terrarium and 20 gallons isn't much but I need help BAD! Please give me some help! Thank You!

    try getting a little AC, just like a regular AC, but miniturized, and have it set to maybe 55-60 degrees farenhieght.

    they have these things too on the market, there like a tube and when you turn it on really cold air comes out, have that on sticking in your tank from the top.

    or use dry ice :biggrin:

    Here is what I remember of a similar discussion on "the other forum" a long time ago.

    Take a beer cooler or a small refridgerator. Take off the door, lay it on its back, put plexiglass on the top, and put lights over that. I think there is a way of adjusting the temp on those units. Or maybe he had it on a timer, I can't remember. Anyway, I hope this helps.

    I personally prefer droseras which I find far easier to grow. All my nepenthes, highland and lowland, are in the same terrarium and some are doing well while others are not really growing. I wonder why.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
