    You actually got an edwardsiana?
    Unfortunately, the bag/ac method will not work effectively. You need more experience and a better setup for it to work. I've been growing cps for years and I'm just now getting an eddy to put in my highland setup.

    That won't work too well. Live sphagnum is much better for humidity. Besides, temps are much more important than humidity for you atm.

    I doubt it will do well or get bigger unless you get bright light, cool temps, good humidity, and a stable setup.

    Yep. You'll need it.

    Why don't you go ahead and buy an AC unit and ultrasonic humidifier? It'll be less expensive than what you paid for that plant, and your plant will do well.

    Good luck. Don't use ice baths on the plant.

    You should have used the money you spent on the eddy to build a proper grow chamber. When I decided I was going to grow neps again I made sure I had a suitable growing area that could provide an exacting, consistent, and appropriate environment before I even purchased my first plant. The best part is I have a fully automated chamber and it didn't cost that much more then the cost of a single N. edwardsiana.

    Ill be very curious to see what your plant looks like in a month or twos time.

    BTW is this an AW eddy or SG?

    Enough already, with all of this TF fascistic scheiss, about building so-called "proper growing chambers" or jerry-rigging AC units, prior to buying a ******ing plant! N. edwardsiana is about the simplest of the highlanders to grow, far more tolerant than, say, N. villosa; and can almost be grown as an intermediate, in some parts of the country . . .
