    BTW, thanks again for letting me visit! I am still much in awe of your Nepenthes and Sarracenia!

    You're always welcome to come over and look around. Just call ahead of time to make sure we're home. Tomorrow(Saturday) we're selling at the Flowering Tree and Tropical Plant Sale in Boca Raton, "under the banyan trees" next to the tennis courts behind the Chamber of Commerce on the north side of Palmetto Park Rd in the center of town. Stop by if you have the chance, just to say hello. We'll mostly have the bread and butter stuff, but might bring some different things, like some echinostomas, ampullarias, and those Sibuyan lowland alatas. Still, come by the greenhouse sometime and just look around-that's how you develop an eye for IDing different species and hybrids.

    Thanks for the invite. I might just take you up on that come spring, when I'm not so busy and things are growing like crazy again.

    I don't think I can make it to the Flowering Tree and Tropical Plant Sale, because we'll be packing to go on vacation, and my grandma is coming down from Melbourne, Florida too. I'll ask anyway, and see if it is possible.

    Trent,

    You don't happen to know if you will be the only CP grower there or if there will be others?

    There's no one in my village that understands me, and Tony down in his town, no one understands him, and the same with Tamlin. God help us! lol. I was thinking of installing an underbench misting system to just mist the ground, but I didn't worry about that, so I just installed it on the rafters, this way everything gets wet and it evaporates quite quickly due to the monitor blowing heated dry air around so the plants aren't continually wet. Florida must be the place for heat lovers tho. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Mind if I book a flight to come visit? haha.

    SF, we are the only vendor with CP at the Boca sale.
    Dustin, we find wetting down the floor an effective way to lower temps and raise humidity without consuming precious RO water. Whenever we wet down floors, you can watch the gauge change.

    Hmmm....interesting.....I might have to do a switcheroo...or just buy a seperate pump which is no big deal. I could run another line off of the main mist line under the benches. My humidity is quite high tho, about 65% of the mist reaches the greenhouse gravel floor. The whole middle 'aisle' of the ghouse is always usually wet. Humidity hasn't dropped below 65% for a long while due to my fix on the cycler, now it mists every 7 minutes for 20 seconds, which maintains quite a bit humidity. What I can also do is run a pump and line (not fancy like my setup now) and use plain old tap water like you have to wet it down on the same timed cycle. What I like about my current overhead system however is the fact that it waters the plants automatically and gradually.
