    ok. here's the details:


    First, I grow them on a south-eastern (mostly east) window. (I'll get into details in just a sec [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] ) {I do NOT grow it in a terrarium.} I give it bright to full sun from 9-12. after twelve, (if it was a day with full sun) I close the blinds halfway so it gets full sun for 10 mins, them shade for 10 mins, then full sun for 10 mins, etc, etc...

    Humidity and temp.:
    They get a constant humidity of about 60-70% in the night, (on the coast here in CAlifornia it's almost always foggy every night) about 80%
    Temps are around 60*-70*,sometimes, at the most, 75*-80* on very hot days


    EDIT: Tell me if you want more and/or better details

    *in robot voice* SCANNING BRAIN FOR MORE INFO

    Watering:

    I give it a good watering every 3 days and leave a little water at the bottom of the pot. every 2 weeks or so I give it a drying out of about 3 days, (I empty the little water that's at the bottom of the pot,too) but if it starts to look too dry before 3 days I water it.

    *in robot voice* SCANNING BRAIN FOR MORE INFO



    EDIT: CORRECTION: I give it 60-75% humidity

    Try using the Paint program that comes with windows if you don't have any photo editing software. It is capable of opening jpg files. Once you do that you can simply go to Image stretch/skew and reduce it in size. Then resave it and upload.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    lol no seriuosly thanks for the info just discovered my humidity is a little low (have my plants outside in gazebo) probably due to the lite breeze we are having today. Going to have to do something about that.

    im getting a Ventricosa real soon [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] i cant wait!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It will be in a 10 gal. terrarium for now, or intill it outgrows it. Im going to put it in a peat, perlite, and charcoal ratio 1:1:1. I will have 2 lights on for its light (they are bright grow lights)
    Then ill have a humidifier in a corner. Any comments questions, or help are welcome, thanks,

    I doubt that you could fit a humidifier into a ten gallon tank. You could just get one anyway, and run it in the same room as the terrarium. I sugdest getting a larger model, so you can adjust it from 30 to 55 percent humidity. Works great for me.
