    hi,

    Thanks starman. I feel quite proud of this pitcher. Hope it doesn't die on me after changing its enclosure.

    Well, Christian:

    This is where i would like to help you mate!. However, growing a lowland in Melbourne is not the easiest thing to do. I know it is possible, because i have spoken to some people who actually grow this plant, but it won't be cheap!. You will need to maintain the temperature at night no lower than 21-22 degree Celsius. You will have to use polysterene sheets all around your tank and keep the water heater going, if that's what you use.
    Other people use heating mats underneath the pot to keep them warm at night.

    Good luck

    Gus

    I will have to let Gus help you on the climate cos I live in MN! But my trick is to grow the lowland plants in the warmest part of my house. Which happens to be where the dining room table used to be. Now I don't have a dinner table but 2 large neps tanks instead! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I personally would go with the electric heat mats underneath the terrarium if relocating in the warmest part of your house is not an option or if the warmest part of your house is not at least 70*F at night. Ive heard bad things about aquarium heaters. I've never used one again after returning home from an xmas party to find my natural aquarium full of dwarf cichlids and banjo catfish boiled to death from an aquarium heater that stuck on!

    hi swords,

    Hehe. tell me about it. I have a glass enclosure of some kind on nearly every table too. Although the plants are a great talking point. Especially the most unusual kinds of neps.
    What was your neps doing in the freshwater aquarium? ANd I always turn the power off before I stick my hand in to do any changes or checks.
    What happened to the aquarium heater?
