    Yes, maybe it hasn't adjusted yet. When i first got my N. Burbidgeae, i could have sworn i could have pulled a Rip Van Winkle and it would have looked exactly the same when i woke up. Now that i have had it for 5 months (with only one leaf might i add) it is now growing about, oh, ten times as fast with another leaf already starting to open up. I know the humidity isn't too low, since i have a hygrometer, and it's at (almost) a constant 75% a bit higher at night. I use natural light. And the temps are about 70-75 during the day, and 55-60 at night, so i think i have everything right.

    i have had the plant since last christmas thats 11 months. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I moved it under a desk lamp which is alot brighter as the plant was about 3 feet below the growlights it was under before. This desk lamp is very bright and warm . i stuck a thermometer under it and it said 90 deggress. i was like wow thats good enough and as soon as the light goes off it drops to 70 room temp.

    Sounds like you have a lighting situation. What kind of growlights was it under? Three feet is a long distance!!! Guessing by desklamp you mean an incandescent fixture If so these produce alot of heat, as you noticed. They are however very poor light for a plant to grow by. And the excessive heat drys the air out a tremendous amount if the plant is not in some sort of enclosure to maintain the humidity.

    Think you need to seriously rethink your setup and lighting situation.

    Can you give more details on it now?? Type of lights and number, distance to the plants, terrarium vs windowsill, etc

    That's an powerful desk lamp you have there, i can safely assume that the humidity would get too low though. An interesting problem here. Maybe misting it a lot would be good, or placing a humidifier in the room might work.
