    Get yourself (or build yourself) a grow chamber. I use big ol' fish tanks, 80% or 90% (gotta have SOME air flow) covered with whatever glass or plexiglass I can find. Go around town the day before any large garbage pickup. You'd be surprised how many people toss tanks....

    i have used a 75 gal tank and didnt care for it. hard to get pics, hard to take any decentsized nep out to get pics. i prefer reaching in from the side. here on the plains of northeastern Montana we dont generally have really high humidity so this is what i did for my neps. some that are in there dont need this nice of a setup(N. bongso has proved quite tollerant of 40-50% humidity or so for me) but my N. veitchii and ampullaria do enjoy it.
