    I started with VFTs at about 15 that my friend fed ground beef to (boy were we stupid hah) and in college had a whole setup under my bed with nepenthes and VFTs. Wish my yard was more sunny so i could grow sarrs but they just fail in dappled shade. its fullon nepenthes with a side of sundew and VFT for me

    could you post a couple pics of the window setup from different angles so i can get idea of depth and how the upper section is? I am sure we can get creative. have you considered those adhesive strips that come with hooks maybe could hang and remove down the road.
    Yes, will do so after work. Check back later today... thanks!

    My son took some pics and sent them to me as it'll be dark by the time I get home. Here they are:

    Taken looking head on.

    They're in front of a large east facing window so they also get morning sun. Above are T5 LED full spectrum 2ft long lighting. In the terrarium are my only 3 Lowland Neps with supplemental lighting overhead. In front there are two Truncata x Talangensis plants and one Spathulata that weren't pitching. After researching it was determined that humidity needed to be increased. Simple solution is working. Hybrids have beginnings of pitchers and Spathulata even more so. All I did was cover them with elastic food covers with a few dime size holes cut and mist them few times daily and it worked!


    Three of my Neps: Sanguinea, Ventricosa and Burkei will be repotted very soon as they're getting really big so I'm looking for solutions pretty quick for them.


    Thanks in advance for your time any suggestions you can provide.

    so you want to keep the larger plants in the same section of your home right? just need to get them up higher without hanging? I would build a small platform to put the big boys on and allow the pitchers to hang down. If they start to vine maybe put a stake in the pot and attach stem to stake with some ties.

    Good idea. I already have a bunch of 1/2" PVC pipe and connectors. Just need a hand saw and I can make a platform of some kind.
    Bought this cheap planter on Amazon. Not going to hang it but the rigid hangers are perfect for a growing vining Nepenthes (My Indoor Highland Greenroom).
    I'll post pics when I'm done.

    Thanks!!

    when you get the pipe cut please share pictures of the elevated plants!

    so i have begun collecting supplies for my growspace upgrade. fully committed now! will be roughly 9 feet wide, 5 feet deep and 7 feet tall. will build two tables so plants arent so hard to work with and will also catch all runoff water so i can siphon it out efficiently. will run two 420 watt induction lamps attached as high as possible. will install a metal piping around the perimeter hanging from ceiling so i can easily attach hangers. still will use same humidifier and small fan for circulation. will use one wall of a growtent attached to plywood for the entry wall and use existing room walls as the other 3. might have to show photos for it to make sense hah. all interior walls will have white poly with heavy duty tarp on floor to keep all water contained. maybe will have two small fans built into plywood, one to blow in and one to blow out that would run 15 minutes once or twice a day just to keep CO2 levels high. should be a killer setup that will last a couple years Then god only knows what ill do with the jungle
