    I suspect there is more to it than dry air causing your lack of pitchers. This is one of my five N. ventricosa that I transplanted today (It's now in a 6" pot instead of a 2"x3" pot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] ). As you can see on the hygrometer/thermometer in front of it, the humidity is low (27%) and this is a typical daytime reading for me. Does yours get a temp drop at night? Mine drop from the mid/upper 70F range to the upper 60F.

    My ventricosa has been living in the lap of luxury: 85ish during the day. 70ish at night. 60% humidity (lows), 100% (often) as the high. Every night the humidity gets over 90%.

    Thanks, weather. Today it's FREEZING, it dropped below 70 just before sunrise. BRRRR!

    Wow, i'm glad that drama ended happily, with the "little" orphaned nep being adopted by the big, kind CPer.

    You know, 15 gal aquarium tanks are really cheap. Not as cheap as 10 gallons, mind you ($12 at the local Petco), but cheap. Check out garage sales and the local craigslist.org, and you might even find a BIG aquarium tank for cheap.

    Alternatively, spend $20 on acrylic and a tube of acrylic cement, and if you've got more manual dexterity and handiness than i (quite likely), make yourself a big, custom tank like the one somebody else just made here, and you can have it the shape you want with good ventilation.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I found a $20 18 gallon aquarium at petsmart. The lid added an extra 15 dollars though, and the lights were around $8. So I guess it cost 43 bucks total. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
