    That could be it too. Yet N. villosa does fine next to it. The lows at night average out around 48F at night so close to the nocturnal requirements.

    Yes, but keep in mind that your N. villosa is still small, and
    therefore less demanding of cool nights than it likely will be
    as it matures.

    Ah I see. I was thinking of having a small exhaust fan (around 8 inches in diameter or so) and pull cool air in from the outside in the hot months, or in thw winter pull cold air in over the plants with a thermometer deal to switch on and off the fan.

    Nice pics Dustin! Sweet hamata! My little one (about 4" diameter plant) just suddenly went into a growth spurt as the late summer weather became a little cooler. It's lookin' PHAT now, but no where near yours! Man, I can't wait for it to start to vine like that.

    Dustin,

    Is that 48 F at night natural, or how low you cool your chamber?

    Hi,

    Dave, N. hamata is like that when small, you'll get steady growth, then like Emeril, BAM! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Joe, it's all natural, I wouldn't think of artifical cooling! It would be nice to have a chamber like our worm house at the bait shop, it has a huge cooling system and its constantly around 35F in there, pop N. villosa in there overnight (or N. aristolochioides) and you'd have a happy plant!

    You're kidding!? This plant needs that kind of cooling?? I've been growing mine as an intermediate-highlander (summer) and regular highlander (rest of the year, night temps in the high 50's) for over a year, and it's happy as a clam. Is this just one of those neps that really doesn't care all that much, or should I really strive to chill this sucker??
