    Thanks for your words everyone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Schloaty- The rajah is about 10/11 inches across. It went from 5 inches across to this size in 2 years after I repotted it into this large water lilly container. I just wished I had tried that earlier.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Robin- I grow my villosa on the floor of my house in more shade. It gets a bit more humidity there as well. Like the rajah growth has jumped ahead since the repot into the wide container.

    Amateur_Expert- Guess Swords answered that one

    cheers

    Very nice Bill....Love the Ragah!

    Can you give some details of your glasshouse setup in terms of temp and humidity control? Any pics?

    Thanks,

    Aaron.

    Hi Aaron
    When I first set up my Neps house I had a closed off section which I arranged a misting system for. The rest of the house kept my Sarr & VFTs.
    Gradually I realised that the Neps did not need such high humidity and now hardly ever use the misting system. And now my Sarr etc are in a new house my collection of Neps has spread to the rest of the house!.
    No heating at all in the spring/summer/autumn. I use a fan heater in the winter to keep the house at 45/50f.

    Here is one side of the open part:



    cheers

    Very nice bill! I especialy like that ventrablis! So colorful That villosa is nice too,and so is the veitchii,but then again the rajah has such a cool peltic insertion...... And your gh is way cool! I hope mine arives soon,its been 3 weeks it should have been here by now It came to $450 with all the postage and all too(of course postage and insurance charges are "non refundable") its a 6x8x6 polycarbonate. If it ever gets here I plan on useing a small space heater with a thermostat I got at the big swap where we met up with other byc members for $1 its 1500watts should that be enough to heat to 45*f?

    If I calculated correctly and assumed correctly 8mm twin wall polycarbonate.

    It will take 10,000 btu to maintain 45degrees f. if the outside temperature is -20. (used that as an estimate on the coldest temperature you might experience in your area)

    A 1500 watt heater will give roughly 5000 btu so you would need 2 of them.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
