    My Indoor Highland Greenroom

    Hello all, I built a relatively modest tent in my basement to start a new collection of highland Nepenthes and Heliamphora. It is only a couple weeks old and the plants I do have are still arriving and settling in but I want to get it documented and share the experience with others

    -currently getting night temps of 50-55 without actively cooling thanks to the basement setting
    -using a reptile heating cable in addition to the heat from the light to bring day temps to 75-80.
    -420 watt indagrow induction light
    -fogger humidifier set to keep tent 75-80%
    -small axial fan hanging from the middle of the tent on a 15 on 15 off timer to keep the air mixing and moving.
    -used some egg crate to bring plants off the floor for drainage and used some weed cloth to keep tendrils from sneaking below.
    -small RO filter setup to fill a 5 gallon reservoir with float valve

    Think that covers the basics. Happy to answer any questions anytime. These plants are much more fun to grow when you can share them with others

    Looks good. Add a bigger fan. The air needs to move more.
    Also keep in mind that the water might pool underneath

    Still waiting for some pitcher inflation to share with you all but things going well. More plants on the way and lots of live sphagnum cultures setup. villosa and inermis are still eluding me but I will keep asking around

    Thanks for the fan advice, do you think I should run it 24/7 as well? I have larger fans but was afraid it would be overkill in there because the room is so small. I wrapped the entire bottom with a heavy duty tarp so water can pool underneath safely. If it were ever to accumulate in large amounts i guess id have to suck it out somehow.

    got the bigger fan put in and plugged into a fan controller as the full speed was way to much for the space.
