    Very interesting new hybrids, Jeff. I am very interested in lowland x highland type hybrids, because the few that are around are very tolerant of a wide range of temperatures. Of course, what peaked my interest was the N. lowii x N. northiana. Please keep us updated as the seedpods develop!!
    Also, we've had all the same species-hybrids tending to bloom at the same time, but for us in our greenhouse, the dominant season tends more towards late summer and early fall. Spring is when we get our best pitchers.

    Hi Jeff,
    I forgot to ask about your greenhouse too. Is your greenhouse irrigation R.O. filtered? If so, what are you using to provide the pressure and quantity required by a Turbo HydroFogger? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Trent (again)

    Jeff,

    Didn't you use in the past a common ultrasonic humidfier, or is the fogger we are talking about in the lowland area?
    According to Dustin's link, that bugger covers 500 sq ft(I wonder if they meant cubic feet?). I imagine you can't saturate the air too much, as long as there is some air movement, lol.

    Yes, I use an RO system, with a pressurized reservoir. This is
    used to feed the HydroFogger. It works quite well....

    We are talking about the lowland area.

    OK, so let me get this straight, the outdoor greenhouse is a heated lowland climate with the tubro XE Hydrofogger fan unit and the indoor grow chambers for the ultrahighlands I am assuming is humidified by a typical ultrasonic humidifier correct?

    You are mostly correct. I have an indoor environment for
    highland plants. I also have specialized terraria (modified
    freezers, really) for true ultrahighland plants, such as
    NN. villosa, lamii, diatas, etc. The highland environment
    is humidified by ultrasonic means, but the ultrahighland
    terraria are not mechanically humidified. Rather, I've
    found that the water which naturally collects there is
    more than sufficient to keep the internal humidity
    near saturation.
