    Well done! I'm pleased to see that you've decided to try this!
    Since I set mine up in 2001, the plants I've grown in it are
    doing quite well. Please keep me posted on your results!!

    Ah thermopane window.. I see.

    Kirk if you scrounged around for a used freezer and went with less expensive parts such as shoplights and plexiglass in place of the lid, you could reduce the cost significantly.

    I like how the fluorex lets you see in to view the plants though without having to move stuff around to open it up.

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

    Uh, you know that you can grow macrophylla, rajah and lowii on a windowsill right? I grew a macrophylla on mine for a time and i have a friend that grew rajah and lowii on his for a while also. Though i can understand you wanting good housing for your Neps. I'd get one for myself, but i already have a warmhouse that gets in to the fifties at night, which is good enough nocturnal cooling.

    wouldnt a refriderator of the same size provide you with the same temperatures you are trying to get?

    Are you talking to me, or the other guy? Anway, my warmhouse is pretty large (8' by 8' and 6'10" tall). I think a refrigerator would be more expensive to operate. Besides, i would think it would be more complicated to get the nocturnal cooling (or daytime warming, depending on how you look at it) in a refrigerator.
    I only replied since it was unclear whether you were talking to me or the starter of this thread.

    Yeah rlhirst, please clarify why a freezer and not just a fridge. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Wonít a fridge be able to reach 5 degree Celsius?

    Iím going to create something similar myself next year but I donít plan to grow Villosaís and will already be happy with night temperatures around 10-15 degree Celsius.

    Oh and how much lighting (wattage) do you have on top?

    A refridgerator removes humidity, even if you DID humidify it, it wouldn't be worth the electrical costs. Freezers just cool things down with no airflow in or out of the freezer body.

    Now that i think about it, your right gracilis. Air conditioners do the same thing.
